Meet the Stylists
When I was in cosmetology school and new to the industry, I went to a seminar where the speaker (a very successful hair stylist) said that often he is asked what he does for a living. His response was "I physically and psychologically transform the lives and destinies of fellow human beings....I am a hairstylist!" Now that may seem a bit of an exaggeration, but I like to think that when my clients come to see me and sit in my chair, it's a chance for them to relax and separate themselves from their everyday stresses, as well as receive an amazing cut, color, style or waxing service. Something that is fresh and new, but easy to work with. I also think that it is important to educate my clients on how to repeat their "salon look" at home. It's always exciting to have a new cut and style, but it's even better when it can be fabulous every day!
I have been in this industry for 11 years, working with doll house for 9 years, and I love it! I enjoy the creative freedom, artistry, and social aspect that is hair. I love getting to know my clients, and through consultation, creating a custom cut, color or style that is unique for them. Whether it be something subtle and natural or a little more funky, I love it all. I didn't know 11 years ago that this was what I was going to do forever, but I am blessed to have found a career that I am passionate about and a salon that I enjoy working at every day.
"Hairdressers are a wonderful breed. You work one on one with another human being and the objective is to make them feel so much better and to look at themselves with a twinkle in their eye." - Vidal Sassoon (a stylist I admire)
I've been in the industry for 3 years and I have enjoyed being creative. I've kept up with the new trends yet I've never forgotten what old trends have taught me, but the most important trend is making a difference in a clients life. I strive for a client to see my smile when they sit in my chair, to notice the dedication I have to achieve my goals as well as being honest with them and to have them leave feeling and looking better than when they arrived. It's not only a good feeling for them, it's a great feeling for me. So come into dollhouse, sit in my chair, and get your twinkle back.
I praise you for I am fearfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. - Psalm 139:14
My passion for hair came from a summer spent in Mozambique, Africa. Helping girlswith unwashed hair feel beautiful and watching their confidence rise is what fueled my passion! I graduated from French Academy at the top of my class and continue to strive for excellence in my career. I will always be learning and furthering my education so I offer you professional advice on the latest trends.

Creating personalized styles by putting my hands and ideas to work is a driving passion in my life. Everyday I have the privilege of meeting a variety of people, developing meaningful relationships with the women and men in my chair, then together illustrating a look that best fits them! Growing up, I would spend countless hours in front of the mirror perfecting new hair tricks I had learned, or making up new “dos”. I had an overabundance of Barbie mannequin heads and I used my sister’s full head of hair as a model more than she may have liked. Now, I am blessed to use my imagination and do what I love everyday at Doll House. It reassures me that I wake up every morning able to fulfill my lifelong dream. The cherry on top of it all is that my co-workers are more like family. We challenge and support each other, have our serious, but mostly funny moments, and most importantly, we are all free to be ourselves. I am enjoying my hairstyling adventure with them. Through them, I am learning, growing, and ultimately making each individual who walks in feel beautiful.
