I studied at and received my hairdressing certification from Graham Webb Academy. I apprenticed under Larissa Bottger and gained an even deeper insight into the hairdressing world through this experience.

I am passionate about education and make a point of attending key educational forums. A sampling of some of my educational experiences include Oribe Back Stage, Miami, Fla., Intercoiffure, NYC., Arrojo cutting class, Sally Rogerson show and cutting class. Most recently I attended L’Oreal Mastery of Balayage NYC.

I have a great passion for my craft and take great pride in what I do. I like to exceed my clients expectations and I make sure every client leaves with a memorable experience. I feel education, communication, and laughter are key in life!

I love creating beautiful hair color that is personalized  for my clients. Being a trained Balayage specialist allows me to deliver wonderful natural looking results whether it is for a client who is blonde, brunette or red head. It feels great to complete the look with a beautifully crafted hair cut.

In my free time I enjoy listening to Reggae music, but my greatest joy is spending time with my beautiful daughter Charlie.


Karen and Nicole did a great job! I haven’t had my hair highlighted for years and I’m definitely glad I went there.
