My love affair with hair began at a very early age. As a child, I created a station and mirror in my room, and would spend hours doing my own hair. I practiced everything from roller sets, to twisties, to flat ironing.

For as long as I can remember, I have always gotten relaxers. But at the age of 22, enough was enough! I finally decided to give up, what many people refer to as, the creamy crack. I was tired of my hair being thin, brittle and weak. I will admit, even though I wasn’t relaxing my hair any more, I did continue to flatiron it – completely destroying my natural curl pattern. Eventually I got tired of that and decided I really wanted to embrace my natural curls! So, in January of 2015 I did the “BIG CHOP” and started over. I am so happy I did. No longer a slave to the flatiron!

“I feel free and would love to help you feel free too!!”

I graduated from Ohio State School of Cosmetology in 2010. Since then I have been diligently working towards mastering all things concerning natural hair while focusing on everything from haircutting, to color, to natural hairstyles (twists/braids). I am so excited to embark on this new journey with Amy and the wonderful women at AMBUSHED SALON and of course, WITH YOU! I look forward to having you join me on this journey!
