Cuts, Color, and Texture Services

 Some of my clients are pomade loving, changelings, some are low maintenance and product avoidant. Some visit me with specific inspiration and others with "I don't know". Whoever you are, whatever your personal expression, I am looking forward to collaborating with you.



  • Natural looking, long lasting, dimensional color. From baby lights to balayage for every budget.

  • Reestablish natural red that has dulled with time. Demi-, semi-, or permanent color that turns back the clock.

  • Grey blending, coverage, or even (gasp!) let go of color and embrace the silver!

  • Reveal the magical, rainbow unicorn you are inside. Now in technicolor! 

  • Explore the infinite variations of brunette or blonde. It's not boring, it's classic.  

  • color starts at 90-


  • Trained for 1A to 4C hair textures! 

  • ​Tips, tricks, and tools to enhance or tame your natural texture within your desired level of maintenance. 

  • Dry Cutting techniques for curls, coils, and waves. 

  • Razor cuts that compliment your texture and create movement. 

  • Perm (125-/hour) oh yes, I love a perm. I will design something modern and made just for you. 

  • Brazilian Blowout (350-) because you're low maintenance but your hair doesn't seem to be. This service will cut your drying time in half, smooth your texture, and seal in your color



  • A great cut (85-) supports your features, considers bone structure, eyes, and smile.

  •  She/her, he/him, they/them. The shape of a cut can be a crucial element in the expression of outward self. 

  • Growing it out? Let's skip the awkward stage and keep you feeling great through the process. 

  • Get yourself out of a style rut, update and modernize. I've got ideas for you!

  • Never one size fits all! Craft cuts tailor made for you, your life, and your cowlicks.


  • Your appointment is about you.  No small talk necessary. If you need a quiet space to recover and relax, I'm happy to oblige. You can even pick the music (or turn it off)!

  • Transparency and clear communication. I will provide time and price quotes prior to services. Your beauty budget may vary from month-to-month, I've got options with price point variations.

  • Thank you for your feedback! I'm a great hair dresser but can't read your mind (yet!) Don't hesitate to tell me what's not perfect about your hair. 

  • I work from a private salon suite that is entirely yours during your appointment.

  • The space we share is safe. As a queer human, it is particularly important to me that I offer a supportive, judgement-free, collaborative environment for all folks.
