I have always known that I wanted to be a hairdresser. I have been blessed with fabulous opportunities in the industry: trained at The Vidal Sassoon Academy, Santa Monica and worked at top salons in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills. And, after 26 years, I still LOVE what I do. I have been a color educator for IT&LY and have educated hairdressers in the world of color for the past 13 years.
I'm pleased to welcome you to Strands Salon & Day Spa where I can meet all your makeup needs – from Beautiful Brides to Basic Makeup. Also available to you is my own custom line of cosmetics featuring a perfect blend of foundations and the most popular shades of eyeshadow. Please feel free to contact me for a consultation or additional information.
