I specialize in Natural Beaded Hair Extensions. I love the transformation that takes place both inwardly and outwardly of the guest who sits in my chair. As an artist, I love the creative challenge that goes into executing extensions successfully. Learn more about NBR and fill out an application here.
I love the vibe of the Shelter Salon culture. There seems to be a stigma around high-end salons that we just don’t have here. We’re very much a family – we’re all hopelessly devoted to submersing ourselves in our ever-evolving craft and making a little money doing really well what others can’t.
I draw inspiration from lots of places: fashion, my team, the NBR tribe, and my business coaches (Garrett and Danielle White, Arianne Rivera and Valerie Plunk).
My favorite quotes are: “You think I’m an asshole only because I say what you need to hear, not what you want to hear.” – Garret J. White and “Busy hands, sound mind.”
My hero? My brother. Matt Fouts is my sounding board, my voice of reason. I know I can present him anything to him and he’ll be 100% real with me. He’s the smartest guy I know.
My favorite books include A Thousand Splendid Suns by Hkaled Hosseini, Grit by Angela Duckworth and Presence by Amy Cuddy.
Oh, and on karaoke night, you better believeI I’m signing Gangsters Paradise.
