Hello, everyone and nice to meet you! While I’m “newish” to Eugene, hair is something that has been a long-time part of my life. I’ve been a stylist for 10+ years and had the privilege to work and learn from amazing cosmetologists in salons across California.
I pride myself on being a well-rounded stylist, but my specialties include hair color, men’s cuts, and styling/updos (ask me about my bridal party specials). Above all else, I like to think of myself as a curly person’s best friend. I’m an expert in curly hair. Not only because I’ve spent countless hours and money on furthering my education, but because I spent the last 25+ years trying to be the master of my own curly hair. Something near and dear to my heart is to provide a safe haven for my curly and ethnic people of the world. Growing up, I have memories of walking into salons and having to ask whether they could even do my curly, coily, cotton candy hair (parents with curly kids – must read!). Long story short, it sucked and didn’t feel good.
Those experiences as a kid left an impression on me and I want to make sure people of all ethnicities, hair patterns, and textures feel comfortable in my chair. I’m beyond excited that my journey lead me to Salon Nirvana and am so grateful for the opportunity to work with this amazing team of stylists and YOU ALL!
P.s. I have a degree in Communications and am always happy and willing to lend an ear. My Motto: There is no better therapy than sitting in your stylist’s chair!
