Aveda Color Purefessional

Education & Experience
I have been doing hair since 2004 and have been with Aveda the majority of that time. I am an Aveda Color Purefessional. I have been teaching classes for Aveda and Dolce Lusso since 2009. I love all aspects of doing hair. Color is my passion but there is nothing better than customizing a color to match a new cut! Whether it’s a great chocolate brown, the perfect blonde, or you want to discuss what would be best for your skin/eye color, I love it all!

Interests and About Me
I have two young boys that keep me busy and on my toes! I love spending time with them and my extended family. We love the beach and traveling to new places and having adventures together. I also try and find time to read and have the lofty goal of reading one book per month.

Favorite product:
After being in an Aveda salon for 15 years, I can’t just pick one product I love. Sorry not sorry! I love volumizing tonic for lift, volume, and hold. I love air control hairspray for the firm hold but without the stiffness of many other hairsprays. Lastly, I love smooth Infusion line because it helps with our “southern humidity” without weighing down the hair.
