In 1990, I attended a well-respected beauty college in Northern California, and was trained and certified in PivotPoint and Redken SES. While attending school, I was hired as a wig stylist for productions at Santa Rosa Jr. College, Saint Mary's College, and San Jose State College. After completing school, I went on to assist at an upscale salon in Union Square in San Francisco, where I received extended education, and later received more extended education for the next several years. My work was featured in a national magazine representing Sorbie, and was featured in a hair and fashion show representing L'anza and Blue Marlin. I and the other participants from the salon were profiled in a salon trade magazine for our contribution to the show. I later served as a Salon Educational Partner for Pativa (a company that is a division of ISO today).
My specialties include point cutting, dry cuts, razor cuts (and various other texture techniques), fades, vintage style cuts, and various coloring techniques. I am proficient in all hair textures from bone straight to tight and curly.
I am transgender, and people of all genders are warmly welcomed. My clientele consists of people from all walks of life with all types of hair. All of my clients can be assured that their needs are respected, and I will use the best of my ability to have you leave happy and confident.
In April of 2014, I moved my business to Oakland, and as of March 2019 I will be located at Dandelion Hair Salon.
