Hello! I'm so happy you stopped by. Welcome to my Hair Stylist Portfolio! I’ve been passionate about fashion my whole life. My mom tells me from the age of 3, I was going to be either a hairdresser or a teacher. Who knew I could be both??? I began as a cosmetology professional in 1997, and have worked as an educator since 2012.
Over the years, education has always been a priority and it fueled my desire to become an expert with my knowledge in hair chemistry and technical terminology. I still take continuing education classes including ones which have lead to becoming a Master Colorist. This knowledge gives me full confidence in providing both practical easy to wear day to day services as well as complex corrective colors and retexturizing treatments. Each color, cut and style is unique and tailored specifically to each guest sitting in my chair. While I enjoy working with all types of clients, I have to admit, I do love when someone presents me with a challenge. I'm a hair nerd so getting to really test my color knowledge is exciting.
Now, in addition to working behind the chair, I am also the Director of Education at Taglio Salon in Natick, MA. I have been servicing Natick and the Metrowest area my whole career. I love helping new stylists grow their knowledge and confidence as well as coaching seasoned stylists to grow both personally and professionally. Assistants at Taglio Salon have the opportunity to apprentice one on one with me. During that time, they work side by side with me learning and applying the foundations that will take them into becoming a successful stylist. The process they go through is extremely thorough. You can be confident that if I have asked them to provide a service for you, it is because they have proven that they are fully capable of performing it exactly as I would.
I have also been fortunate enough to have many opportunities outside the salon. Early on, I had an amazing opportunity working with the RUSK design team, both assisting as a hair stylist, and, as a makeup artist at their local fashion shows. That experience is what lead me to pursue a career in color education. In 2012, I auditioned and was accepted as a Goldwell Regional Artist. I have had the honor of working with salons and stylists all over the New England area. I love to share my passion for education with others. Every week I am fortunate to work with a different group of talented stylists. I facilitate classes from basic color theory all the way to advanced techniques and formulations. Meeting and connecting with other stylists is always fun and helping them grow in their career is so rewarding! I view teaching as my opportunity to repay the wonderful industry that has given me so much. I have been fortunate to work with National Artists and continue to grow within the company
In addition to working in the education field of our wonderful industry, I've also had the pleasure of working outside of the salon through my company, Hair on Set. As an independent stylist, I have helped many brides get ready for their big day. Relax and enjoy being prepped and pampered while I create the perfect hair for your perfect day.
I have also been the hairstylist for the biography cover photo shoot of one of New York Times best selling authors. She just so happens to be one of my favorite authors and I own quite an extensive collection of her books, all autographed! One of my favorite experiences is when I worked as a stylist for the national television series Hitched or Ditched in 2009. It was so interesting to see what goes on behind the scenes of reality TV. In 2015, I worked as a hair and makeup artist for Twighlight Storytellers: Masque, which was the wildcard winner, as part of the Lionsgate's women in film competition. I was honored and proud to support a great production which took 4th place. In 2016, I worked as lead hair stylist for the full feature, QFLIX Worcester award winning independent film, Russian Doll. Shooting a feature film locally was a lot of fun. It is now available on Amazon Prime! I am looking forward to more projects in the future!
