The Stylist
I love people!  And, I enjoy helping my Clients find hairstyles and hair color that best suits their desires, lifestyle, and needs.  My specialties include; curly hair, discrete grey coverage/ blending, natural highlighting effects, keratin smoothing techniques.  I offer a complimentary consultation, personalized attention, an appointment incentive plan, and a great experience in a relaxed atmosphere.   

My private suite is far from the hustle of the main salon, offering a temporary retreat for your enjoyment.   I attempt to stay informed about the latest innovations in sustainability.  This includes repurposing hair waste through TERRACYCLE instead of sending clippings to the landfill where it contributes to environmental pollution.  Biodegradable non-latex gloves means even less unnecessary waste and soil pollution. 

My clients are honored as unique individuals.  My commitment is to help each person I encounter to look and feel their BEST-  inside and out.  Curly Hair, Natural Hair, Balayage, Short Hair, Long Hair, Hair Extensions.  Women, men, teens, 'tweens, and even small children all deserve to shine and express their inner beauty.  Hair is a great outlet !  I embrace my Client's children as Clients (my own teenage daughter keeps me current on what's 'cool' !) and I especially enjoy helping teenagers express their individuality with style!  Gentle pricing allows your kids to contribute toward your incentives and experience a fun, friendly haircut experience- shampoo or dry- smiles guaranteed!  

My Cosmetology career began in 1998, working as an in-salon Apprentice, learning hands-on under the guidance of some Howard County's best Senior Hair Stylists, and participating in amazing hands-on workshops at the Graham Webb Academy in Arlington,VA.  I earned my Maryland Cosmetologist license in 2001, and advanced to earn my Senior Cosmetologist license in 2006.  I've enjoyed training salon Apprentices, mentoring Junior Stylists, and continuing my knowledge in my craft.  My continued education opportunities have included fabulous experiences at the Redken Exchange and Bumble and Bumble University, both in exciting New York City!  Most recently I became a Certified Holistic Hairstylist with OWAY, an Italian manufacturer of groundbreaking hair color and  Hair care products made with green chemistry.

 I am committed to using products that perform and are manufactured without cruelty toward animals or harm to the environment.  I am certified with OWay HColor, a revolutionary ammonia free holistic haircolor system born in Bologna, Italy and introduced in the United States just a few years ago.  The mission of OWay haircolor and haircare products is to provide healing synergy along with amazing performance.  More information at

I also enjoy Original and Mineral products from Austrailia that use many indigenous naturally derived ingredients without toxins and unhealthy synthetics.

I am also an approved stylist for KEVIN.MURPHY HAIRCARE, an amazing luxury brand born in Australia. The concept of KEVIN.MURPHY as a company is to develop "skincare for your hair" using high quality natural ingredients cultivated from environmentally sustainable sources worldwide.
