my career as a hairstylist started 11 years ago when i was in college studying business & communications. I was offered an incredible opportunity to join an apprenticeship program and work under some of the most talented hairstylists i've ever met.
A few years of hard work and dedication to both my apprenticeship program and my college classes paid off and I had my cosmetology license shortly before graduation. After graduation I moved home to Northern Va, and worked at a local salon for 7 years before stepping out on my own as a small business owner. Now, I love not only being behind the chair but also the business aspect of being a hairstylist. I'm a bit of an administration and accounting nerd.
I have always loved and felt drawn to the beauty industry. There is power in feeling beautiful and I love being able to provide that to women. I love learning new techniques and staying up to date on the latest trends whether its bright blonde, dimensional brunette, a short textured bob or waist length hair extensions. Stop by my services page to learn more about what I offer. You can also check my schedule directly from my website to book an appointment. I am looking forward to meeting you and working towards your hair goals!
My childhood dream was to be in the beauty industry! I started my profession in the Cosmetology program during high school and have developed my technique in all aspects of the latest Hair and Makeup trends. Having spent the last six years in the hair industry, as a young stylist I bring a fresh and creative style to my craft and I’d love to share them with you.
I’ve had the privilege of working at top salons in Northern Virginia where I built a solid foundation as a hairstylist. I am now grateful for the opportunity to work alongside Amanda Langhorne at Salt & Light Hair Co. I feel like such a vital member of the team. My passions include all aspects of the beauty industry including health and fitness, and I also love to make people laugh. An hour in my chair will lead to a new fashion idea for your wardrobe, a whole brand new look, or makeup tutorial! It's up to you! I take pride in educating my clients, so please feel free to ask me about all things hair and makeup.
I am a multi-talented stylist, but consider my own personal style as 'glam'. Voluminous curls and a pair of big, gold, hoops, favorite leggings or jeans and boots are a favorite look. In addition to styling hair, I am also a freelance makeup artist. My comprehensive, whole-person approach for beauty will leave you feeling completely refreshed!

The name Salt & Light Hair Co was inspired by this passage in the Bible when Jesus was telling the disciples to be the Salt of the Earth and Light of the World. As I was thinking of a business name, this kept popping into my head and I couldn't shake it. What Jesus meant when he was telling the disciples to be salt & light is to remember their indentity in Christ as Christians and to be a light to a dark world through their good deeds. My mission as a hairstylist and business owner is to be a light to people by making them feel loved and beautiful.
