As a TIGI Copyright Colour Educator, I believe in using a great technical base of knowledge and specialized formulas to create gorgeous hair colour. I currently have a classic and progressive background of hair colour and take classes at the TIGI Academy in NYC. I travel around the United States to teach what I love and share some of my personal colour experiences. I pride myself in educating each client about their overall hair health. My favorite types of colour to create are classic, effortless, and progressively bold.

When it comes to my passion of this industry, I feel it most when cutting new shapes, textures, and accentuating movement in my clients hair. As a native of Wilmington I like to spend my free time outdoors by the beach and I’m inspired by hair in its natural state. I like to help my clients appreciate their natural texture and style. I also love to travel and explore, I spend lots of time in NYC at the TIGI academy getting advanced training in cutting education and upcoming fashion. Male or female your hair is my canvas and I strive to customize my work to your persona, while making it easy for you to maintain at home.
