Hair Artist

Stylist specializing in haircutting, color, natural hair styles & crochet braids

I was born and raised in this beautiful town of Waxhaw.  As a little girl, my mom taught me how to braid by using three strands.  When I was 3 years old, she would take me to the salon to have my hair done and my stylist would let me create hairstyles on her mannequin heads.  It was then that my passion for hairstyling began.  When I was in high school I signed up to take Cosmetology part-time, in my Junior and Senior years.  I received my NC Cosmetology license two months after graduation, at the age of 18.  Since then I haven't stopped learning. 

When I’m not working you can find me taking continuing education classes.  I recently purchased my first home and enjoy being snuggled up on my couch watching a new anime series, Star Wars, Marvel and DC.  I also enjoy hanging with friends and collecting different genres of Funko Pop figures. 


I love it all...haircutting, coloring and styling, but I really am a natural hair styling queen and braid enthusiast.  I love a good challenge.  I believe every challenge presents me the opportunity to grow.  If you're looking for a relaxing, comfortable, loving atmosphere give my chair a try! I will help you reach your hair goals.
