"Your Third Eye for Style!"
I have been a licensed Cosmetologist as well as an active member in the Beauty Industry for 16 years, and counting (licensed, Feb. 2000). As a Master Artist, I specialize in both, Hair and Makeup Artistry. I absolutely love, and take pride in making people look and feel their absolute best. I strive for 100% satisfaction in quality of service, sanitation, comfort level, professionalism, customer service, and of course, end result! Because of my attention to detail approach, or as I like to call, "Third eye for Style", I ensure that every client who sits in my chair (whether it be in the salon, private studio or on location) receives nothing shy of what I would personally expect from a high end service provider.
I truly enjoy being as involved as possible in the wonderful world of beauty. My philosophy is, you can always find inspiration or learn something new from the professional, to the consumer, and everyone in between. In order to remain passionate and be successful in this industry, you must never stop learning! My promise to you is to always stay on the cutting edge of all current trends. I take different classes regularly and attend, at the very least, 2 conferences a year featuring several different professional brands. This is crucial in both learning new techniques for every season, as well as understanding all different skin and hair types and textures. As a result, I have a very diverse clientele and am comfortable working with all their individual skin and hair needs.
Currently, I take clients at Bella Tosca Day Spa & Salon in Mission Valley, Ca. as well as at my private VIP studio in Downtown San Diego Ca. (by appointment only). I travel and educate for (SexyHair), which for those of you who aren't familiar, is an AWESOME worldwide professional brand of quality and essential hair products. Additional to that, I am an "Elite Expert" for an online advice column (TAAZ) for any and all beauty related questions (button in links page). Last but not least, I own and operate an on-location service company (Swan Process). This agency provides a team of artists to your doorstep. Making it ideal for those more special occasions or when you would simply just rather not go to the salon.
