I love Meridian! I was born and raised in Idaho, but I started my career in Cosmetology while living and working in Oregon. I have been a licensed Cosmetologist since 2007 and specialize in hair design and Redken color; short and long precision haircuts and updo's. I am Hair Extension certified and I offer facial waxing and brow tinting as well.
Being a hairstylist never felt like my job, it has really been my passion. Every day I have the opportunity to be an artist, a teacher, a counselor and sometimes just a listening ear. I have loved being in a position that allows me to build close, positive relationships with my clients and enhances my ability to provide them a relaxing experience along with the best services and products possible!
I want the salon to be a place you can be heard. Ask me any questions or concerns you have about your hair and I will give you my best ideas and solutions to have you leave, looking and feeling beautiful!
