Come see what we've been up to!

Isn't color the best? I'm just such a huge fan of fun brights, subtle pastels, and lived in beautiful hair. My specialty as a Matrix Certified Color Master is hand painting and creative color, but I also teach corrective color classes and have brought many heads of hair back from the brink.

I'd love to design a fun look just for you!
