I can’t imagine a life that doesn’t include styling hair and take pride in staying on top of the latest techniques, as well as knowing the best hair care lines for my clients, many of whom have been with me for over 12 years! In October 2018 I became the first hairstylist to earn the three-step Master Balayage Certification by L’Oreal in Rhode Island! This has required me to complete the rigorous Balayage Techniques class at the L’Oreal Academy in SoHo, N.Y., and also complete other coursework that focuses on creative placement and color balancing. Balayage is something I’ve grown passionate about because it allows me to be creative and customize the applications based on the client’s desires. Uptown allows me to work on the cutting edge of new techniques, which I love! Still, I also appreciate the tools that have worked for me since day one! I love spending my days at Uptown Salon, it’s a terrific team of talented people and our clientele is the best! At the end of the day, there’s nothing I love more than heading home to my husband, children and two rambunctious dogs.
