The Aesthetic of My Work as a Hairstylist: Natural, low-maintenance, tailored to flatter individual physical traits, with an edge.
What I Bring to the Styling Floor: I bring a calm, attitude-free air to my interactions with clients and coworkers alike. I love hearing my guests explain their hair history and working with them to find the best look for their overall lifestyle.
How I Found My Way To Wonderland: I've kept an eye on Wonderland since it opened years ago and always admired it for its aesthetics and quality work. After years of working as a stylist in other downtown salons, I'm excited that the timing is right for me to find a new home in Wonderland.
My #1 Beauty Rule Is: Health = Beauty
A Good Hair Day Means: Knowing your hair looks and feels right when you step outside and not thinking about it again for the rest of the day. Finding the right shampoo/conditioner and styling product(s) for your hair type and lifestyle make it so much easier to predict a good hair day, day after day.
Most Valued Quality in a Wonderland Guest: Openness and willingness to talk and work together to get the best possible results.
Sources of Inspiration: Daily inspiration comes from living in such a diverse community in New York City. I find inspiration from fashion trends, of course, but I'm most inspired when someone exudes passion for whatever they do in life.
