Favorite Products: The entire Brazilian Blowout Line! I offer Brazilian Blowouts and when my clients come back for another service, I can totally tell from the feel of their hair if they have been using the Brazilian Blowout products. They work so well, and the proof is truly in the hair!

Specialties: I am trained to work with Great Lengths and HairDreams Extensions as well as fitting and maintaining wigs. As a colorist, I apply my knowledge to providing my guests with custom color for their natural hair, their extension hair or their wig hair. For my male clients, I offered placements and removal of our American Hairlines systems.

Interests: These days my main interest is in extensions and wigs. I work in Dupre's sister salon, Tousle by Dupres. It opened in December of 2016 and I have been spending most of my time growing this new business with Shop Owner Jay Dupre. Together, we have spent day after day creating beautiful looks with extensions and wigs. It is truly a labor of love and I am honored to meet and serve our amazing guests. When I do have free time, I enjoy my friends, family and indulge my very serious case of wanderlust! I love to travel and take every opportunity I can get. The more states and countries I can check off my list, the better!
