My Curly Hair Life
I’ve wanted to become a hair stylist since I was in 4th grade. It wasn’t until I graduated high school and was about to begin Cosmetology school that I realized I wanted to become a curly hair specialist. Growing up in a city where straight hair was very popular, it was difficult to find a good cut for my curly hair. I dreamed of a career in which I could help people and a lifestyle that I could take anywhere. I’m a hair stylist by nature and a curl lover at heart.
I graduated from Paul Mitchell the School at MTI College in 2012, then moved to Vancouver, WA where I met a woman who specialized in curly hair. She had me read the Curly Girl Handbook which changed my life (for those of you who haven’t read it, I would highly recommend this book). I took my first DevaCurl class in the spring of 2014; That fall l I left the salon I was at and moved into my own booth rental chair. I had no clients and very little experience, but I was ready to dive in head first. The following spring my business took off. In 2015 I made the switch and became a full-fledged curly girl which has helped me relate to the struggles a curly girl experiences every day.
A little bit about me personally: I married my husband in 2008 and have had the opportunity to travel the world with him. We had our first little boy a year into my new career which was rough, but I love this new #momboss life. Health, fitness and candid photography are a large part of who I am. In my heart I am a complete curly girl, not just in my career but also in my life.
Since taking my first DevaCurl class my eyes have opened to a whole new world which has inspired me to show women that curly hair was not only beautiful, but it could be easy, manageable, and frizz-less. I have spent time and continue to spend time going to extra classes to learn about curly hair so I can be more knowledgeable for my clients. I teach them new techniques and about products that are available. I try to adapt the techniques I learn (straight or curly) to match my client’s hair, needs and lifestyle. I use DevaCurl products in the salon, however I am also utilizing products my clients use and need as well. I truly believe that each head of curls is different.
