Menu of Services

Note: All services are ala carte, to enable you to customize your own cut and color package, except hair cuts, as noted in the descriptions. This is so you don't end up paying for steps like a blow dry with every service added to your appointment. You can add multiple services when booking. If you aren't sure what you need, use the notes when booking to describe what your goal is, and I'll make adjustments as needed. All prices are estimates and may be adjusted up or down based on time and product used. All timing is also an estimate.

Hello, Love! 

Hair and makeup have always been my passion. 

I gave my first haircut to my little sister when I was in the 6th grade. It was an amazing wedged bob. Okay, "amazing" may be a subjective description of it. Let's just say for the 90s it was hella fly. I got my first Caboodle for my birthday, 7th grade year, and thus started my makeup addiction. I spent hours in my bedroom, looking at magazines and duplicating looks.


By high school, I was knee deep into the theatre and acting. My favorite college course ever was the theatre makeup class. I learned about lighting and contouring long before YouTubers were teaching the world how to change the shape of their features with lowlights and highlights.  


I spent a few years in a "real job" in Property Management, and I excelled at it, but I was bored and hated being behind a computer all day. I started soul searching and it was actually on my way home from Disneyland, after stopping in the Sephora in Downtown Disney, where I made the decision to go to Cosmetology school. While my Mom and I were in Sephora, she witnessed me answering questions and helping other shoppers.  She said to me, "You really need to do something with this talent." My reply was, "But Mom, retail is TORTURE!", yet the thought would not leave my mind.  Half way home, I had a plan. I started Cosmo school less than a month later and ultimately, graduated early.


Over the course of the last 19 years, I've worked in the top salons in Fresno, Monterey, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Carlsbad. Along the way, I saw how underserved certain hair textures and types were and really focused in on solving the common problems people would bring to me. That led to getting Deva Certified at MaduSalon in San Francisco, in 2007. Many years of happy curly hair reviews later and I decided I had better make sure I knew everything there was to know about curls because the demand for someone who could cut natural curls was increasing. I'm now also Rezo Certified (I took the class one-on-one with Nubia Rezo in 2021) and Mizani Aircut Certified (2021, with Tippi Shorter as my instructor.) I'm happy to call Clovis home now, with many of my original clients back in my chair, making hair dreams come true.
