When and how did you get your start in the industry? (year, where, etc..,)

I love that we are family, and there is literally no other salon like us..

My husband Bill. And my 4 crazy kiddos, Avery, Parker, Tegan, and Dexter
What do you like to do on your days off?
Run errands and my kids everywhere for their sports. Avery is a competitive gymnast, that takes a huge amount of my time. Parker is my swimmer and I keep him in tutoring for his learning disability. Tegan is finding her sport. And Dexter is along for the ride.
Favorite services to offer.....
I love color correction. I love the challenge and the science behind it.

Wax blast because it gives that messy on purpose look. Color fanatic because it’s EVERYTHING and preps the hair. And Tripple Take hairspray because it’s like magical pixie dust, strong hold, but you can still put your fingers through your hair.
