MASTER STYLIST / SALON EDUCATOR
“Education is so beneficial. In this industry you have to keep up with the trends and what is popular. I will continue to take education courses, it keeps things exciting and fun when you get back to the salon and get to use what your learned. A favorite of mine is combining balayage and ombré techniques to create lived in, beachy hair. I absolutely love what I do, and I want share my passion with as many people as I can.”
“I feel very blessed to be apart of this team for the past 5 years. Not only do I get to do what I love, but I am surrounded by such supportive and talented women who inspire me to keep creating. Mid length and short texture haircuts are my favorite. I get more creative when it’s short and something about texturizing hair puts me in the zone!”
“Growing up, I was obsessed with all the fashion and beauty trends, so I decided to make a career of it and go to cosmetology school. My hands on training at Salon 253 taught me so much on how to be a stylist. I am obsessed with Balayage and it’s always fun taking people lighter!”
“Continuing my education is always a top priority. I strive to make clients feel beautiful inside and out. It’s my goal to have my clients love their hair again. Being a stylist at Maui’s best salon has been surreal, its such an honor.”
