I have been a hairstylist and colorist for 20 years and have a deep rooted passion for what I do.

I have trained with Artego, Aveda, Goldwell, L’Oreal, Pureology, Redken in both cut and color. I am also Keratin straightening treatment certified.My work has been featured in Washington Life Magazine for top 10 stylist, Short Cuts Magazine, Celebrity Hairstyle Magazine and Platinum International.

My specialties in the hair dressing world are short hair cuts, color, special occasion hair, men’s cuts and Keratin straightening.

My greatest joy is watching the transformation of each guest in both their hair and spirit by the lifting of their mood! It’s not just about the hair, it is also about the heart. Taking time to listen to my guests to find out  what their desire and ultimate expectation is, is critical to my work. Communication is key.

When I am not behind the chair I enjoy being outdoors at the beach, lake or a on nice long walk. I am a foodie and love trying different cuisines. Friends and family are important to me. I love sharing special times with them.

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