Start Date with Elle Marie:
Gene Juarez Academy
Redken Color Authority
I obtained by cosmetology license from Gene Juarez Academy. From there, I was hired at Elle Marie Hair Studio. I received extensive training from Redken Artist and Education Director Megan Gepner. For 9 months, I shadowed her and became extremely grounded in my career. I learned advanced techniques in cutting, balayage, and foiling. She focused not only on teaching me precocious techniques, but also coached me on the science behind hair color as well. Because of that, I specialize in corrective color and product knowledge. I am confident that if you put your trust in me, with the proper home care and instruction, together we can achieve your dream hair!
Passion for the Industry:
I have always had a passion for art, and I am able to fulfill my passion every time I go to work. Your hair is my canvas! I love what I do and I love having the ability to make others feel beautiful. It truly brings me joy. I am here to educate my guests on all of the best products, latest trends and the cutest styling techniques! My goal is to not only make you look beautiful, but to FEEL beautiful too.
Who Inspires Me:
I get a lot of inspration from famous hairstylists. I am always interested in seeing how their techniques differentiate from mine. I spend a lot of time looking up trending hairstyles and colors. My coworkers inspire me on a daily basis and I love learning from all of our talented stylists.
When I am not working I love spending time with my family. I am a shop-o-holic! Guilty as charged! I also love being outdoors. During the winter months I love hiking and walking along side the beach with my pup. When the sun comes ouut I never leave the water! I am a social butterfly so I love going out and meeting new people!
