Halloween, the ultimate cosmotology holiday, recently came and went! Here's a peek of some of the looks I created on myself in the spirit of fun and parties!
This was a unique color session because my client came in and said, "Do whatever you want!" I had a lot of fun with this one. It's not everyday my suite feels like a true art studio! I was able to choose a color palette and the placement. Essentially, I layered two ombres on top of one another while maintaining the same base/root color for each. Loved the turnout! Enjoy!
...because a picture speaks louder than words!
I have had a very long, but productive past two weeks. I spent many nights working late, prepping for weddings, and then working them. In the past 9 days I've worked three on top of working in the studio. Everyone who hired me for on location services these past two weeks took really good care of me. You all are the best, I'm #sofortunate !
Typically, I do not do upstyle/bridal hair. I only freelance my makeup services in order to stay sane and keep my hair supplies at work. Therefore, for weddings I purely book on a makeup basis. However, I made an exception for a bride with unfortunate circumstances this past week. Featured in these photos are a couple of highlights from the past three weddings I worked. All of the photos taken from the front are makeup applications I did. The photo taken from the back of the head is an updo.
For me, it's important to show you all the "real" makeup photos in whatever lighting is provided at the location. Find an artist that fits your needs and puts up an honest front, and you will get the results you're looking for. XX say no to airbrush apps! XX
So grateful to be recognized in Baltimore Magazine's August 2016 issue! Even more excited to be deemed best colorist for the year! A big congratulations goes out to my friends at 'smoke + mirrors' salon for winning best salon of 2016. I love when all of us are accomplishing goals together!
I got to celebrate with friends at the 'Best of Baltimore' Magazine Party this past week and had a blast! I can't wait to see what we accomplish in 2017!
Saturday, August 6th, marked my first official day of business in my new studio space! I'm already booking for September, so make sure you're booking ahead of time!
+I offer Olaplex, a re-bonding agent, added to any color service to ensure less breakage and maintain health. (Highly recommended for any lightener service)
+You can also receive a keratriplex treatment (keratin) with or in between hair appointments to add protein, strength, fullness back into your hair, while reducing breakage.
+For smoothness, hydration, condition, and shine, you can get a clear gloss during any appointment to seal and smooth your hair.
As necessary as hair coloring and lightening can be, nothing is more important than maintaining the health of your hair when using chemicals. Please refer to the above "add-on" services when chemically transforming your hair, also designed to be used in combination with proper professional "take-home" care. Each add-on service is a $30.00-$40.00 upcharge. A small price for a huge benefit.
There is no insurance on the health of your hair if you fail to embrace the proper care.
i've been bursting at the seams to share that the thoughtful editors at 'baltimore magazine' awarded me the title of "best colorist" of 2016, in their august "best of baltimore" issue. i'm very humbled and thankful to be noticed. it's easy to get swept up in the pressures and hardship that this industry poses, and i truly appreciate them seeking out and recognizing my work from this year. it's a sense of validation that pushes me to keep moving forward despite my own doubts. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

HAIR COMMUNITY FEATURE FOR THIS COSMIC COLOR!
Big changes are taking place! A new design and look for a new business! Be sure to pick up a few new business cards when you stop by the studio to share with your friends!
This look was a complete transformation from a lengthy low level brunette to a platinum leveled bob! This client had some previous color banded in her hair, but with 3 appointments and a few generous haircuts we were able to make this beautiful change happen, which can also be seen on popular hair community, "allaboutdahair, and number one hair magazine, "behindthechair_com"
Was ecstatic to see that a handful of hair communities enjoyed this fun pink spring look!
This rose peach highlight was featured on 'American Salon Magazine!'
'Cosmoprof Beauty,' a major beauty supply company, 'American Salon Magazine,' as well as a number of smaller social groups were kind enough to share and feature this colorful hand painted look!
As someone who graduated from a Paul Mitchell school, continues with education through this brand, and uses their products and tools on a daily basis, I couldn't be more excited to be featured by people within the company. After using the Paul Mitchell 'Donald Scott Carving Comb' on my own hair, I was also granted a personal feature on his page as well!
'Behindthechair_com' is both a hairstyle magazine and the number one social media site for salon professionals. A blonde toning technique I implemented was featured on their page along with a blue bob that can also be seen on my instagram.
Feature by 'Joico' hair company after using their color intensity line for a bold pink ombre. Feature by 'Bellami Hair' for featuring their luxury hair extensions in a gray braided color project.
Gracious and excited to be featured on 'American Salon Magazine' and 'Esthetica Magazine USA' for my most recent rose color and style! Also, a big thanks to 'imallaboutdahair' hair community for also recognizing and publishing this look.
