I attended the College Of Hair Design in Lincoln, NE in 1997 where I completed both the Cosmetology and Barbering programs. My first full time job doing hair was with a company called Beauty First in Lincoln, NE. Shortly after I started working there I got involved in some of their educational programs with Redken and Goldwell. I completed several classes at the Redken Exchange on 5th Ave in New York City and helped teach Redken classes to other Beauty First salons throughout the country. I also got the opportunity to attend some color classes at the Goldwell Acadamy in Baltimore, MD.
I like to pride myself in all of my skills as a hairdresser but have found myself gravitating towards color the most over the years. I have used Goldwell color since beauty school and definitely think that has played a part in my skill as a colorist. I also enjoy cutting and styling. Styling has always been a niche of mine since I was young. I was always styling my own hair different all the time and would also style my friends hair for prom, or my mom and sisters hair for special events. I feel I have fine tuned these skills over the years as well.
I always knew I would end up moving somewhere warmer and in May 2007 decided to make the move from Nebraska to Jacksonville, FL where I continued to work for Beauty First. Due to corporate events that happened all Florida Beauty First locations ended up closing by January 2011. My next move was to a salon called Compliments by Sherry and Co. Salon & Spa where I worked full time until December 2014.
I am now the owner of my own salon called Divine Hair Design located in Atlantic Beach, FL which I opened on January 6th 2015. I am so ready and excited for this next phase of my career. I truly do have a passion for this industry and will continue to do It for as long as I possibly can. I want to invite you to make an appointment with me at Divine Hair Design to experience my passion at work first hand. I look forward to meeting you!
