Hairstyling was my hobby as a teenager but I was convinced that I was going to be a lawyer. Fortunately, at the end of high school several people came across my path who pointed out that if I loved doing hair, I could turn my hobby into a career. In hairstyling school, I learned that I’m obsessed with hair colour and my friends would often end up with hand-painted highlights if they came over to hang out (this was way before balayage or pintura).
I didn’t discover my passion for helping fellow curly girls and guys until after I had been doing hair professionally for 12 years. After my first DevaCurl class in 2012, it was like a lightbulb moment and I approached curls in a whole new way. I had already been a successful stylist and master colourist at this point but this was completely different fulfilling level of hairstyling.
I started Curve Hair Studio in 2013 shortly after my DevaCurl level 2 class because I wanted to create a salon that had a unique approach to all hair textures including waves, curls, and coils. The salon and the team here have grown tremendously and I have continued to expand my curl knowledge. Myself and the whole team are committed to ongoing education to continue our growth as stylists.
Even though I dream of having gorgeous tight ringlets, I have wavy 2c hair. It’s healthy, whatever length I want it to be, and easy to care for. Yes, hair can be both beautiful and low maintenance at the same time. The best part is that I can teach you how to have healthy hair that reflects who you are so that you feel strong, confident, and empowered with any hair type.
Because I have curly hair and live the lifestyle I teach, I am uniquely capable of coaching you on how to transform your hair and how you feel about it. I want you to love your hair as much as I do. Are you ready to feel like you’re in charge of your hair, not the other way around?
