The most important thing I can tell you about myself is simply that I love helping people look their best. My first foray into the fashion and beauty world came shortly after I graduated from Mississippi State University, where I earned my bachelor’s in Fashion Merchandising. I jumped headfirst into my chosen career by moving to New York City in 2005, where I worked in various fashion roles including assistant fashion editor for Women’s Wear Daily (formerly DNR), PR coordinator for designer John Varvatos and assistant to multiple magazine, television and commercial wardrobe stylists who styled for Harper’s Bazaar, O Magazine, Bravo, Target, Sam’s Club and various others.
In 2010, my home state of Tennessee started beckoning me to return. I headed back down South where I continued wardrobe styling for celebrities as well as companies including Amazon, Dillards and ESPN. I soon realized that I wanted to open my market to hair and makeup to give myself even more opportunities to help others look and feel their best. I got licensed and completed an apprenticeship under Sarah Behnke to kick start this new phase of my expanding career.
As a stylist, I believe strongly that understanding my clients’ wants and needs is critical to developing a fantastic relationship. I strive to provide a fun, relaxing and rejuvenating experience each time you sit in my chair. I also understand the importance of creating styles that are modern and fashionable, and by formulating a “plan of action” for each client, I am able to insure that their new look can be achieved on a daily basis. My desire is to provide total care for my clients by sharing product knowledge, styling techniques and other tips that will keep their hair healthy, shiny and fabulous, even after they leave the salon.
