I’m a small town girl who grew up in East Millinocket, Maine, with the beautiful and picturesque Mt. Katahdin as it’s backdrop. Nature is in my blood and I have a huge appreciation for it. The smell of the trees, the sounds of the rivers and waterfalls, and the amazing night sky with all of it’s wonder. My roots go back a few generations. I guess you can say that I’m a true Mainer!
When I’m not in the salon you can find me spending time with my family. Be it spending time outdoors or family movie/ game night inside. I married my High School sweetheart and we have an amazing son together. We tried the “city life”, but we longed for a home that was similar to the one we grew up in. We now reside in Standish and love it!!
My “me time” usually involves watching documentaries/movies/shows of true crime, thriller, horror, or the paranormal….but don’t get me wrong, I do love a good laugh and a good cry with most genres.
I also enjoy dabbling with a variety of arts and crafts and teaching my son, Atticus to explore the arts. From painting to candle making, jewelry making to salt dough sculptures and all that’s in between!
I have been serving the Greater Portland community since 2002. I have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people both in front of and behind the chair. This community has opened my eyes up to a multitude of things that I wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. Different cultures, upbringings, careers; I love hearing the stories of all of these amazing clients and coworkers alike. Building these relationships has truly been life changing. I have realized that people are more alike than different, but simultaneously learned that each individual is unique.
A day with me...
I will always greet you with a warm welcome and a smile. You are important to me! We will have a thorough consultation of what your hair wants and wishes are and I will LISTEN to you. I will guide you in a direction that best suits your needs and complements you and your lifestyle. Bonus: I’ve been told that I give a great scalp massage, which is included with every shampoo!
I have a very easy going personality and I tend to follow your lead; my chair is a ‘No Pressure Zone’. I am what you call an extroverted introvert, and have a real, genuine laugh that echoes throughout the entire salon. I love to laugh and find humor in just about every situation life has to offer. I am completely happy to converse with you, but if you come to the salon for “you time” and just want to relax without the chit-chat, that’s cool with me also!
I value relationships and am looking forward to meeting You!
I enjoy a vast variety of color scenarios, I truly love enhancing one’s natural hair color by creating that desirable base shade of beautiful blonde, rich brown or a natural red. The next step is pairing that base with dimensional highlights and/or lowlights utilizing a technique that best suits your expectations, such as foil work or balayage.
I also LOVE cutting hair! I love to cut transformational styles that have a bit of edginess to them. I also love to “fix” problematic haircuts by reshaping current styles or blending unfortunate ones.
