    When I’m working for you, my goal is to help you be in love with your hair. My satisfaction lies in seeing your happiness when you discover your beauty through your hair. I believe that achieving this requires an honest and open partnership, between stylist and client, and I am committed to making that happen.

    I work with all types of hair, but specialize in classic styles done with a modern twist. I can help you with any color, ranging from gray coverage to a stylish ombré, and everything in between.

    I have worked at Freelance for nearly two years, and am continually studying the latest techniques and styles. I regularly take color, cutting, and styling classes, and I am pursuing my Redken Color Certification. I look forward to having the opportunity to help you achieve the style that makes you smile!

    By frequently attending in depth, hands on, work shops in NYC, I am able to keep myself current in all aspects of haircare. This gives me the ability to bring out the ideal you.

    I was licensed in '08. I am a Redken certified colorist and a certified Pureologist. I am available for Precision haircutting, healthy shiny haircolors, and all texture services.

    I began my career in ’93 and opened Freelance in ’01. I take a modern, classic approach to beauty. Listening is one of my most prized qualities as a stylist. Hearing you clearly helps me bring out your best self.

    By using my extensive education I am able to produce modern cuts, gorgeous, shiny blondes, rich reds and enviable brunettes. Along with my airbrushing and freestyle make up skills, I am constantly producing beautiful, classic styles.

    I’m a Redken Certified Colorist, and I go to NYC regularly to learn the best in hands on cutting and coloring techniques. As a hobby I am a metalsmith; creating one-of-a-kind organic rings, cuffs, earrings, and necklaces.

    A San Francisco native, I've traveled the world before 'settling' in San Diego. I have a strong interest in Art, a love of creative people, and a life long passion for education. All of which I've been able to channel into my hair styling career.

    I'm currently working on becoming  a Redken Certrified Colorist. I see your image with a fresh perspective and a chance to bring out your distinctive style. Great hair is not only looking, it's also, feeling beautiful.

    I entered into this business in 2011. Before joining Freelance I spent a year getting to know the business aspect of the beauty industry. I worked with one of the largest distributors of beauty. Carrying products from L'Oreal, Redken, Pureology, TIGI, and Alterna to name a few.

    I'm currently working on becoming  a Redken Certrified Colorist. Ever since I can remember I've always had a passion for Make Up and Styling. Being able to express this every working day, from salon appointments to your special events, is my dream come true.

    With 18 years of experience cutting and coloring, I am still happy to say, I am an artist at heart and hair is my favorite medium.

    I believe education is key. I continue to learn from the best in the business, both mentors and educators. I have a special affinity for cutting hair, and understand even the most complicated cuts and textures.

    As a Redken Certified Colorist I specialize in creating Blondes, Reds, Brunettes and all the colors of the rainbow in a beautiful modern way. With me you will always be in skilled, kind hands.

    I have over 28 years experience in the hair industry and I'm as enthusiastic as the day I started! The techniques I use are based on classic training; however, I keep it fresh and innovative through on-going education. This enables me to keep my client's look modern and updated.

    Using color is a great tool to accent and personalize each person's unique style. My approach is to take the time to listen and learn about each client's lifestyle and needs. I love working together to develop a relationship so every one of my guests leaves happy and satisfied every time!
