“I came to Rebel Rebel searching for a place to be myself and do what I love. Offering clients a space to create their best version of self through the art of hair. I never imagined when I started my hair journey in 2007 that I would be specialzing in dreadlocks and even more so Co-owning a dreadlock salon with my dreadlock mentor Crissa !
I spent the first 10 years of my career honing in on all things color. Seeking education and learning from talented artist along the way, I found a true passion for blonding and vivid color . Being able to express my creativity through color has always been my thing. To be able to bring my world of color to dreadlocks is the cherry on top!
My dreadlock journey began when I applied at Rebel Rebel 5 years ago. It wasn’t my initial intention to do locs but I was fascinated from the start. It didn’t take me long to get my hands on a hook and crochet my first set of synthetic locs. I fell in love with locs and how they empower myself and those around me.
Which lead me to start my apprenticeship with Crissa at Rebel Rebel. Learning the art of natural loc creation, dreadlock extensions, and maintenance.
Whether I’m coloring your hair or making custom dread sets to let your inner magic shine, my intention is always to make your hair dreams a reality. “
