Keratin smoothing treatments to tame curls and reduce frizz, all sorts of haircuts from long layers to pixie cuts. My colors are typically geared toward more blended/natural looks but also love to work with reds, platinum blondes and any other ideas you may have! Absolute favorite thing to do is style. Updos, shampoo blowout, curls, braid, or any special occasion styles. I value the importance of a thorough consultation so we can achieve your best look. There's never a bad excuse to have your hair done!
When I'm not doing hair, I love the outdoors & SPF50, boating, coffee shops, music, campfires, time with family & friends, board games, drawing, roller blading, movie nights, live-music, and exploring the city.
I entered the hair industry in 2005 with a passion to not only bring joy and happiness to others through great hairstyles but also to be creative and create gorgeous looks for everyday living as well as special occasions. While moxie's amazingly provided ongoing education gets me excited and motivated to do any service on anyone, I especially love working with short haircuts for both men and women. Being able to give those individuals and edgy modern look that no one else has with hair tattooing and custom designs. With a creatively placed color application on top of that, I can give you the opportunity to see yourself a new and exciting way you've never seen yourself before! I look forward to not only creating a friendship with you but also educate you in your hair styling techniques, products that would best suit your hair type, and new and exciting ways to see your hair differently. There's nothing more important in life then feeling great about how you look, building your confidence level and learning to embrace and love your hair whatever texture and type it may be!

I was the weird kid in my town growing up, I would do absolutely everything to my hair from cutting it all off and going platinum blonde to long and purple to vibrant red. I never thought about hair as my passion, until my teachers planted the seed in me. I did not have the patients for a desk job, that to me sounded like torture. I graduated from Professional Cosmetology Institute in the fall of 2011 and started my journey, I worked at a salon for a year and a half before I found Moxie. My life changed when I started here, I felt myself take off with a new passion I had never felt before. I worked for a year apprenticing Brentt and learning absolutely all that I could from him. Sharing similar passions we have a love for curly hair, short hair, and color, I took what he taught me and I ran. I started digging deep into Moxie, I put myself on their education team and recruiting team. I love teaching, nothing makes me feel better than teaching my own guests how to absolutely love their hair and how to style it like I do when they are in my chair. I have the pleasure of working with the new rising stars to help them grow to become masters and show them the passion of this career. When my boss Stephen is out of town I will help fill in for him and teach one of our color lines to other stylists in the industry at our salon. There are so many paths in this industry and that is why I love what I do, I help people look and feel amazing as well as help mold new people into this career and figure out where they want to be. When I am behind the chair I absolutely love doing color, I tend to have a lot of red heads, from natural red to the most vibrant red you have ever seen, I love to do it all. I have a passion for curly hair, short hair, and mens hair, each of them fallow unique styles and not one of them is ever the same and I love that. Not once do I get the same look when I get my hair done, why should my guests? Life is about fun and adventures and hair should be the same. I am always thinking about what I want to do next to my guests, they always leave knowing my next creation.

Rising Star Stylist in Training: $30 Haircut price
Bio: In the industry since 2012. I was born and raised in northern Minnesota, I am the oldest of four girls, growing up in a small town I always had big dreams of living in the city and becoming a great, and successful hair dresser! From a very young age, I fell in love with the feeling you get, from making somebody else feel beautiful. It's an unexplainable feeling, being able to touch the life of another human being. I knew it was my calling to become a cosmetologist, not for the money, the art, or the fame, but to make others feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside. Continuing education is very important to me, it is my strongest belief that the day you say you know it all, is the day you lose it all. One can never have too much knowledge, and nothing is better than being able to share that knowledge with my clients and fellow stylists so we can all learn and grow together. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the world around me, being spontaneous, going on random adventures, also trying and learning new things. I enjoy being around my family and friends, laughing and smiling all the time. In the summers I volunteer my time at a summer camp in Crosslake, MN, for children with special needs, and diseases, painting their nails, doing makeup and hair are just a few of the services I give to them. You only have one life to live, so I try to live every day like its my last and make a positive impact on as many lives as possible. My future goals are to grow farther at Moxie, gain more knowledge along with skill, I would love to take as many classes as humanly possible!! Become an educator so I can share my experience and knowledge. Give back more and do more for others. I would also love to travel and see the world and all the beauty it has to offer.
