Owning Shear Image Salon for the past 28 years has been one of my pride and joys. Working in the hair industry for over 30 years, I am a trained Schwarzkopf Colour Specialist and DevaCurl Professional.
Every day I strive to learn from my clients and my surroundings to be the best that I can be. Life is a journey and we always have room to grow and learn!
It has been -and continues to be- the love of my life to connect with my clients and help them feel beautiful and confident about themselves. I love all hair types and textures and am confident I will give you the cut and colour that will make you feel your best. If you wish to join my Hair Tribe, reach out and book an appointment!
“Helping clients embrace and love their natural hair texture is one of my favorite things. Seeing their confidence grow when they have a haircut that works and when they learn techniques to style their own curls brings me so much joy.”
