I have been a hairstylist in New York City since 2000. In that time I have had the privilege of training with some of the top names in the hair industry including Vidal Sassoon, Bumble and Bumble and L’Oreal professional. I am proud to be certified with L’Oreal professional in Balayage techniques.
After relocating back to my home state North Carolina in 2011, the dream of opening my own salon quickly became a reality in 2013. I am proud to be a resident and business owner in Durham, North Carolina, in addition to servicing my clients in New York at Broom Street Society Being a stylist brings me great joy and I look forward to meeting you.
I have been doing hair in some capacity for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Los Angeles in the 80’s it was kind of unavoidable! I moved to New York 20 years ago and began my professional hair career there. I have had the amazing good fortune to train directly under some of the best names in the business. Education is the foundation of everything I do behind the chair and I continually strive to learn and grow with the latest developments in hair trends and technology.
My approach to hair is simple: to customize everything I do to create the best possible look for each client's hair type and lifestyle. I am obsessed with balayage and enjoy the range of possibilities this hair color technique can create. It’s the perfect complement to a really great cut.
Born and raised in a small town in WI, I moved to NC in 2005. My passion for hair was originally inspired by my love for photography and modeling. Although I did spend much of my adolescence braiding hair and trying cool and funky hairstyles on my friends. I guess you can say this career chose me!
I finished cosmetology school at Aveda in 2010 and continue to learn and grow every day! I’ve had the pleasure of attending several balayage classes such as the L’Oreal balayage Network class in NYC. I believe continued hair education is essential in this industry and I take advantage whenever the opportunity arises . When I’m not at work I love being outdoors with my best four legged friend or traveling and capturing as many moments as I can!
The hair industry fell into my lap at a very early age. While in the 10th I decided to take a praxis cosmetology examine only to find out I passed with flying colors. Still weary about the results I decided to enroll at Paul Mitchell's academy and the rest is history.
I've been in the hair industry for 9 years where and had many talented mentors and continuing educations with lines such as Redken, L’anza, Joico and Pulp Riot. Though I enjoy all aspects of hair styling such as balayage and hair cutting. My truest passion lies in formal hairstyling. It truly is a work of art being able to create beautiful shapes with hair.
I asm so excited to be apart of the Arrow Studio team and I look forward to meeting you.
California born & southern raised artist. I relocated to Durham two years ago seeking creative nourishment. I have been in the hair/color industry for eight years with formal training under Tony & Guy, ORIBE and Wella.
I love to collaborate with each of my clients on a creative level in hopes of finding their individual style. I believe hair should be accessible, functional and complimentary to one’s lifestyle. Due to my formal training under Candy Shaw, I specialize in hair painting/balayage, color correction, blonding and signature cutting of all hair types.

Originally from Florida, I moved to Durham in 2003 and fell in love with it! I have been a stylist for 6 years and I am fortunate to have had continuing education with Goldwell, Devacurl, Arrojo and Kevin Murphy. I really love passing along this education to clients so together we can create a personalized style that is thoughtful and manageable.
I love working with all hair types and have quite a fascination with curly hair. As your stylist you can expect me to ask questions to gain an understanding of your personal style to ensure we create a look that is tailored to you and your needs.
