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!
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.
