Tip to get best results on a post: I always keep the background simple, or at least very muted so the focus stays on the subject; you don't want to see clutter.  And if you do an amazing job on a color or hairstyle, make sure you find the time to get the best possible photo of it so people can see what you see in person.  

Favorite professional beauty products: Redken (Powder Grip, Wax Blast, Triple Take, and Hot Sets)

How social media changed my life: I love working in the salon, but I didn't often get to do my favorite part of the job which is updo styling. Now I get requests all the time from people who have seen my page wanting me for their weddings, proms, special events, and everything in between.  It has inspired me to start my journey as an educator.

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: Jan 2016
