I am a licensed Cosmetologist proudly serving Clive, Iowa (The Des Moines Metro Area).
With over 15 years of experience, I specialize in creating bespoke haircuts & multidimensional hair color.
Bespoke: (adjective) Made to custom order; Custom made.
I also have more than 10 years of experience creating natural makeup looks for any special occasion, photography, and film.
I am a Des Moines native that can tell you where all of the best restaurants are and exactly what to order!
My time outside of the salon is spent going to the gym, painting, reading, or watching The Great British Bake Off at home with my 2 cats.
I'm a very curious person and am constantly learning from anyone or any resource I find.
I love learning about others and how or why they do what they do.
I do my best to evolve on a daily basis.
I have had a love of all things art since my earliest memories.
Art was the one thing that was always highly encouraged in my life.
Hair & skin are my primary canvases now, although I still paint from time to time for fun.
For me, a haircut is much more than just a cut; cutting hair is a sculpture.
That perspective on cutting is truly what sets me apart.
I performed my first haircut at a very young age.
My guest was apprehensive but willing; Barbie loved her A-line bob!
I also provided her a great color service with what I had available: markers & paint.
Since then, my tools and skills have been significantly upgraded.
Clearly, I was made for this profession!
Creating radiant hair color is a passion & specialty of mine.
I work with you to create the perfect custom color for you.
I specialize in dimensional color results.
That includes the most stunning blonding services, bringing brilliance to brunettes; including grey coverage, and blending.
I also have transitioned a lot of clients to their own (natural) stunning silver and educating them on how to properly care for such a beautiful and delicate color!
My goal is for you to leave my studio feeling uplifted, relaxed, and more confident than ever!
Cosmetology allows me to utilize a beautiful balance of art & science to help you look and feel your best.
Seeing the end result of any hair or makeup session brings me great satisfaction,
Being able to interact with you one-on-one in my salon is what fills me with joy.
It’s incredibly rewarding to connect with a variety of people and have a rare opportunity learn so many new perspectives on life.
There aren't many professions in which you get to connect with people on such a personal level.
I am filled with gratitude for this industry that has allowed me to meet and know so many fantastic people.
