Fifteen years ago, I was fulfilling a burgeoning passion for hairstyling by transforming friends’ hair for school dances. Immediately, I began to see how happy and beautiful a new hairstyle made them feel, and I was hooked—soon after, I pursued a career as a licensed hair & beauty professional. Today, I consider myself one of the lucky ones—to be fulfilling my passion each and every day while also being invited “backstage” on one of the most important days of a woman’s life.
Forever the movie buff, I find inspiration in classic movies and fairy tales and the design leveraged throughout each of those unique stories. Whether it’s the color, the detail, the cinematography and set design, the hair and makeup, the clothing, or something else—I love how the art of storytelling incites such beauty. Hair too can also tell a beautiful story. I can make someone look romantic and sexy, hard and wild, edgy yet chic—and even better —I can always tell what a person truly wants by how they walk through the door.
I just love being a part of a couple’s magical day, and doing everything I can in partnership with the whole beauty team to make a bride feel special. I approach each project with gentleness and an open mind. It’s important I listen closely to what the client wants and needs. I always try to have fun, make my clients laugh, and do everything I can to help them feel their most beautiful. Every bride is unique and every experience is special—I love that about my job.
I myself am lucky in love. Having recently married my Prince Charming, we are now blessed with a little boy—a welcome addition to our growing family, including our Chihuahua Maya and our little Gecko lizard, Nuprin! In my spare time, I enjoy going for walks, drawing scenery and coastal living, and taking in the beauty of the incredible Bay Area.
In 30 years, I look forward to continuing my passion—making people laugh while always ensuring they feel beautiful. Thank you for letting me into your fairytale, and allowing me to impact your special day.
