What is your approach to Hair

My approach to hair is an honest one; the integrity of the hair is so important. Some hair journeys take more time, and some are instant gratification. I believe in inspiration, not duplication. Every peron’s color and cut are custom and specific to their lifestyle, personality and what they are willing to invest into the look. I love the science, the Why and the How.

I’m grateful for the opportunity to meet people and touch people’s lives. Your hair is part of your identity. It is a place where you can express yourself. It’s a choice you have full control over no matter what else is happening in your life. I know that Great hair can truly make you feel like a million bucks. Helping someone navigate the struggles of at home styling, and teaching tips and tricks to help them achieve a great outcome at home is so exciting for me.

I hold a special place for Mothers because I am one. I understand the selflessness required to do the job. I’ve learned as a mother of three, that it is so important to have something for yourself outside of your children. I love helping women reconnect with themselves by loving their hair.

What are your must-have tools?

My Scissor Collection, YS Park cutting combs, Balayage brushes, and Goldwell Kerasilk Reconstruct Leave-in Spray

Where do you find inspiration?

My Soulmate and my kids inspire me daily to be the best version of myself. My Team and guests at AJS inspires me to always be growing in my craft.
