Hair and makeup by yours truly. � I have a passion for hair! I love being creative and giving someone a completely new look, while making them feel confident and beautiful.

I can do anything from pixies to long cuts...highlights to designer colors...up-dos to casual styles...or classic to edgy/funky styles! I am obsessed with retro/vintage styles as well; whether it's done with contemporary tools and techniques, or even "old school" finger-waves and pin-curls! There's just something so beautiful about old Hollywood glamour! I would love to give you a new haircut or c

A little snip/shape/style for my friend!


Took this beauty back to the dark side. #brunette


Awesome transformation from tonight! Deepened the root and gave her a bronze sombré with lots of shine!


It was a great week at the salon! Thanks ladies for coming to see me, and for being flexible with my new schedule. For those that aren't aware, I have moved to Austin, TX! I will come to NWA every 4-6ish weeks to work for a week there at my salon. Most of my appointments are already pre-booked with regulars, but I will have some openings from time to time. Feel free to send a request if you'd like to be on my contact-list when I have openings!


Milk Chocolate/Vanilla Swirl. 🍫🍦
For this look, I gave her a "stretched root" and toned her existing blonde with CelebLuxury Viral Silver Wash, which took her from copper and gold tones to a rich brunette and pearl blonde.

Chocolate Wine Colormelt! Her base isn't quite as dark as it shows in the pics (bad lighting once the sun goes down!). I started by cutting about 6 inches off the length, then gave her a colormelt using a rich brown for the base into a wine-red on the mids and ends, and also added an Olaplex treatment into the color!


Black Cherry! I kept her base a super dark brunette, and added panels of red throughout the top for a pop of fun dimension.


I had fun creating this Purple Pansy transformation today! I used all L'anza for the color formulas, and added in Olaplex to keep her hair healthy!


Pour the Sangria! 🍷🍷🍷 She is ready for Fall with her wine-inspired hair color and sassy undercut!


Dark and dreamy for Fall! I love this bronze colormelt with a deep chocolatey brown base and tons of shine! 💆🏻💇🏻


I enjoyed giving Miss Laurianna her back-to-school haircut! She kept us all entertained. 😄 (now watch me me nae nae) 😜


I loved creating this cotton-candy-colored-concoction for Savannah today! Perfect for summer!


We've been going blonde in stages, with the help of olaplex, and now she's summer ready!


I did an undercut and ocean-themed color for my friend last night - this sassy 'do fits her so well!


I love red-heads! I had previously given her balayage highlights, which gives the perfect base for lots of dimension with the color-melt I did today. V***n!


I had so much fun doing this asymmetrical bob cut on my friend! Her base is a deep violet, and I added berry wine colored underlights for a subtle pop of color. 🍷 Love!


I love high-contrast ombrés! Last time we did warm honey tones, but it had faded and was looking too brassy. So I lightened it up some and went with more caramel/sand tones. Makes me want to go to the beach!


She's always wanted ashy blonde tones, but had never been able to get past the gold stage. Thanks to Olaplex, I was able to do babylights all over for a beautiful blend of pearl blonde and her natural golden brown base. Love!


Chocolate Toffee Ecaille (Tortoise Shell). Sometimes the smallest adjustment can make a huge impact! I did balayage highlights all over for this gorgeous pop of dimension. So pretty!

[04/21/16]   I'd like to say thank you to my clients for being such awesome people/friends and always referring me to your friends and family. At the current moment, I am no longer accepting new clients. If my book opens back up, I will post back here to keep everyone informed. Thanks for understanding! ❤️


My creation from today! This was achieved with a Balayage and Color Melt technique. The two mirror-image pics show what a difference lighting makes! The brighter one was taken with light coming from the window, and the next one was taken away from the window with the warm "inside" lighting. No filters!


Fun transformation for a sweet friend! She was ready to let the length go (we cut off about 12 inches!) I gave her a sassy bob cut with an undercut in the nape - this keeps her neck cooler, while letting her bob have much more movement and bounce! For the color, I touched up her base and added some caramel balayage around the face for dimension and shine!


Shades of pearl and silver create a soft natural look.


Color correction from today! I learned something new - L'anza fashion colors are very long lasting! Her purple from 5 weeks ago was still extremely vibrant! That's a good thing for those that want to keep their color for awhile, but she was ready for a change. It took several hours, and lots of brain-wracking/formula-mixing in the back room, but we got her to a gorgeous honey blonde ombré with a warm chocolate base, and cut off several inches for a trendy angled "lob". Now she's ready to jump into the Spring season with gorgeous hair!


Smoky Rose Quartz using Guy Tang's Metallics series. This was a long hair makeover, but the result was definitely worth it! So much shine and dimension!


Underlights are a fun way to rock a pop of color and still have a classic style. Here, I gave her a deep violet-brown base color, with an accent of ruby and amethyst underlights. When all her hair is down, it just peeks out at the bottom, or when the wind blows! 02/26/2016

This is SO important for anyone that gets their hair colored, and especially important if you get fashion colors (pastels and vivids). Knowledge is power! The video proof this hair colorist posted is insane.​


Hair makeover! Highlights are a wonderful way to update your look!


Isn't she beautiful? I cut about 7 inches off and gave her a fun lob with lots of layers for volume and movement. So pretty!

[01/06/16]   New year, new you! I have openings for colors and cuts - let me know if you need in! ✂️✂️✂️


Bronde makeover! This is a combination of balayage and babylights, with olaplex to make sure her hair was as healthy as possible!
