I started my hair career in 2016. I took a year off after high school because I truly had no idea what I wanted to do in life. I was always a creative person, and a hands-on learner, but I didn’t realize the potential that hairdressing would give me. When I went to hair school, I loved it so much that I started to do hair in my house, washing my friend’s hair in the kitchen sink. I was absolutely obsessed with color. When I’m obsessed with something, I become obsessed with perfecting it. I take a fun, raw and real approach to everything in my life, including hair. Ive built my social media portfolio by being blunt and honest, and keeping everything lighthearted. I started my hair career in a time where balayage was just starting to become big, so I spent the first few years of my hair career honing my techniques and taking classes to learn everything I could. Then I fell in love with color correcting. I love being able to take on a big project, and I had once heard that if you can color correct, you can do anything. That’s where my love of reds began. I became skilled in working with permanent colors and everything I’d learn through trial and error. I didn’t want to educate until I truly felt I had enough knowledge under my belt to help someone else. I’m so excited to bring what I know to other stylists and to continue to grow
As a teenager I began experimenting with changing my hair color. I would cut my own hair and even gave myself a pixie! I was never afraid to try new things and take big risks. I remember in high school being drawn to the cosmetology booths at career fairs but always stopping and thinking “this isn’t a conventional career path”. For a long time that route was kept in the back of my head where it stayed…. until I met Danielle!
I’ve been so lucky to be Danielle’s client since 2018. Interacting with her and watching her grow and evolve as a stylist was such an amazing thing to see. I will never forget the appointment that absolutely changed the trajectory of my life. Danielle took me from an at home balayage to a stunning copper color melt. She said to me “you know I am not a fan of people doing their hair in their home, but you actually did a good job, you should really go to cosmetology school.” That was it. The seed was planted and after that day all I could think about was how badly I wanted to go for it. Fast forward almost two years and here I am today, graduating from my cosmetology program in just a few short months. Without her support and encouragement, I don’t know where I would be today. I am so grateful that I found her, and that serendipity has lead me to where I am today. I cannot wait to continue to learn and grow under her guidance and even more excited to make people feel and look their best.
