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!

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.
