I started out my hair journey as an apprentice under Debbie. After taking a year off to travel , living and doing hair in Ottawa for a few years and having a baby boy; I’m back! I have been doing hair for six years now and I love precision cutting, playing with colour and working with textured hair. I love Redken colour and haircare and I’m excited to continue working with this great company. So, if you want to freshen up a dull colour, take a few inches off your length or just maintain your favourite style I’m your girl! Look forward to working with you!
