I am recently new to the Santa Ynez Valley. Since I was young I have always had a passion for doing hair. I started my career early in beauty school doing weddings and special events in Santa Barbra. I have been doing hair for 5 years and been able to further my education by working with many talented and experienced stylists as well as continually attending training seminars. I am certified in both hair extension certification and eyelash extensions. I take lots of pride in the work I do and love to bring out people’s inner beauty.
I was born and raised on the central coast and have been living in Santa Ynez, CA for 5 years. I have been a licensed skin care therapist for 13 years and worked at various salons and spas including owning my own salon and spa for nearly two years in Solvang, CA. Outside of work I ride and show cutting and reined cow horses.
Since doing make-up in my pre-teens I have never stopped. After graduating from FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising) with an Associate's Degree in Cosmetic Marketing and Merchandising and also a member of the Honors Prestigious Beauty Circle, I started work in both the corporate and artistry sides of the Beauty Industry. Working with such companies as: Sephora, Gorgeous Cosmetics, DuWop, Twilight Cosmetics, Bare Minerals, Make-Up Designory, Maybelline and Frends Beauty; my knowledge of make-up is diverse and honed. After make-up school I was chosen out of my class to run Make-Up Designory's Special Effects Lab and was also chosen to compete at IMATS LA. I've been freelancing for over nine years in Southern California, working photo shoots, commercials, films, music videos, fashion shows, weddings, special events and retail environments. Make-up is my passion and I can meet any of your make-up needs!
