Come Prepared

Dry, Clean Hair

Please come to your appointment with clean, dry hair - preferably with no products in it. If you really want to ensure optimal results, you can even just shampoo and not use conditioner.

Payment Methods

I accept all methods of payment besides check. 

My preferred methods are as follows:

Service/Product: Debit/Credit


Card or Cash

Gratuity: Cash

Inspiration Pictures

Come prepared with pictures of hair cuts/colors that you LOVE and ones that you DON'T. Don't judge or second guess yourself here. This is simply so I can get a really good idea of what your likes and dislikes are.

You can find your online booking link in your client only portal.

My books are open to schedule an appointment up to 8 weeks in advance. On the 1st of every month the following month will open up on my online booking site. (ex. on July 1st,  availability for the entire month of August will open online.)

The Experience


Before The Door

You'll receive a text the day of your appointment with instructions of what to do when you get here. You'll be able to choose your drink, music, and essential oil of choice before walking into the salon.

Your Warm Welcome

I'll kindly introduce you to the space to make you feel comfortable, and walk you back to my suite to begin your service.


The Diagnosis

We'll have a thorough conversation about your hair to make sure we're both confident on how we should proceed with your service. You will feel listened to, excited, and taken care of as we explore solutions and plans to create your perfect low maintenance hair color.

The Works

I'll proceed with your color application. We'll keep you entertained - either with watching shows or movies on the salon ipad, music, podcasts, wifi, or fun conversation. It's completely up to you! Once you're done processing, we'll get you shampooed.


The Shampoo Experience

Every service package includes your choice of a relaxing scalp massage treatment, an aromatherapy hot towel, and eye mask. I'll dim the lights and stay silent so you can close your eyes and enjoy your "me time."

Your Education


Your Custom Cut And Style

I have the perfect plan to ensure you look amazing between visits.

I will intentionally educate you on how to maintain and style your hair at home in a way that fits your lifestyle. We accomplish this with recorded tutorials and proper product application.

Your Ongoing Support

We'll make a plan for when and what your next appointment will be, get you checked out, and send you off to go turn heads with your beautiful new hair color. After leaving your first appointment with me, you'll have access to FAQs and Tutorials that will keep you educated and confident in taking care of your hair. I will also be an available resource for you for more specific questions/support.
