My passion for art led me to explore a career in hair about 13 years ago when I joined the creative team at a small salon here in Columbus, OH. During that time, I had the opportunity to work with the #1 haircolor brand in the world, L'Oreal Professionnel. I have done extensive training with many platform and portfolio artists and have spent time training at the L'Oreal Professionnel SoHo Academy in New York City. I am an Artistic Technical Trainer for the L'Oreal Professionnel education team which gives me the opportunity to travel to other salons and teach them new techniques and how to use new products. I take pride in offering a virtually AMMONIA-FREE salon experience with the use of INOA haircolor and DiaRichesse. After a year of training, I became one of the few stylists in Columbus that is certified in the balayage technique. "Balayage" is a French word that means 'to sweep'. The soft, natural, effortless and sun-kissed look of balayage makes it one of the most sought after techniques in the industry today.
