My love for hair and makeup has always been fueled by my obsession with fashion and my vast creativity. For a long time I thought I was going to be a fashion designer, and as I fell out of love with designing I knew I needed a backup plan that somehow still connected me to the fashion world. I then realized that the fashion world wouldn't be what it is without the beauty industry, and that is what led me to become a hairstylist.
Hair is my ultimate passion, but by request I've recently become an "accidental" makeup artist and I've grown to love makeup artistry as well. Salon life is a blast, as well as a blessing, because I work in an amazing salon with stylists that I love, and I meet amazing people that trust me with their beauty needs. Although salon life is "job security", I prefer to express myself creatively through editorial work, runway, bridal, etc. That's why in the long run, my vision is outside the salon and on the pages of magazines, billboards, television screens, or wherever else I can leave my mark. I love what I do and I hope to change my life and the world, through one beautiful individual at a time!
In order to really get my brand out there I need to BUILD, BUILD, BUILD, so I'm always looking for people to connect with in order to expand my portfolio.
