Hello! I am an artistic spirit who loves what I do and likes to think of hairdressing as an expressive art form. Originally from the San Jose area, I graduated from California Cosmetology College in 1998. My roots first began at Progressions Salon, located in South San Jose at Oakridge Mall. After 3 years there I decided it was time for a change and moved to Salon Palais in the Camden area. I stayed there for just over 5 years, until it finally closed in Spring 2006.
Shortly after the closing of Salon Palais, I joined Diva's Salon in April of 2006. Although working at Diva's was a fun experience, I decided to join the Hairchitects team in August of 2007 with familiar face and salon owner Michelle Arellano, with whom I worked with while at Salon Palais.
In October, 2016 I established Color Me Gorgeous, my own studio located within Sola Salon Studios in the heart of San Jose. The studio is gorgeous, offering one on one time and complete privacy.
Constantly staying current with the trends, I am always furthering my education by attending the latest hair shows and contemporary classes. I strive to be a good listener to my clients and really find what works best for them. Some of my specialties include cutting, color correction, extensions, highlighting, up-do's and wedding/formal styles. I have training with bonded hair extensions, Redken Coloring Techniques, and I am a master at edgy cuts and A-line bobs.
In November 2011, I participated in the Redken Exchange program and became a Certified Redken Haircolorist. I am available for in-salon appointments as well as on-sight services such as photo shoots and weddings. Please feel free to call me anytime if you have any questions or would like to make a consultation or service appointment. In September 2013, Myself and a team of stylists placed 2nd in Eufora SOYA (Stylist of the Year Awards) in the team category!
