A saying that is most important to me is, “Do something you love and you will never work a day in your life”. Since I was a young girl, I always took a liking for fashion, hair and makeup. I was raised closely to my grandma who had her license in cosmetology. Throughout our childhoods, my two sisters and I were thrilled for her to style our hair. My mother always provided me with the resources to express myself through colored hair and electric makeup looks at any age. My love for it grew over the years and before I knew it, it became my biggest passion in life.
I inherited very thick and curly gorgeous hair from my mom who always would style her hair straight, never wearing it natural. I had to learn at a young age how to style my hair with heat tools, since I was too hesitant to wear my curls. As well as learning on myself, I started coloring and cutting on my friends, family and my own hair at the age of 14 in my parents bathroom. To this day, my generous mother always volunteers to let me work on her. Without the closest people in my life giving me an immense amount of trust, I may have never found my drive in life.
I grew up in the Chicagoland area with my parents, two sisters and three puppies. I have always dreamed to live in the city. My dad has always been my biggest motivator to following my heart and happiness. I did not start off on the cosmetology path right out of high school. I spent a couple of years majoring in criminal psychology but I eventually found my way back to my art. I moved to the city last year and I am currently enrolled at Paul Mitchell the School Chicago. I will be graduating in November of 2021. I cannot give up the love I have for making people feel beautiful and bringing out their self-confidence. My family has always tried to push me in the direction of cosmetology school, even if I didn’t believe in myself. Since joining this amazing team at Salon Glow, my own confidence has skyrocketed! This salon has the best and most genuine teachers I have ever had the privilege of working alongside. They allow me the space to work and learn at my own pace. Being in this wonderful industry, in this incredible salon, with these amazing teachers has always felt like home to me. Thus, I have never worked a day in my life!
