I have always had a passion for the beauty industry, and began my career as a makeup artist at a cosmetics retailer. I started at Renew soon after we opened in 2008. I love the salon atmosphere and feel that the smiles on client’s faces as they leave are priceless. I recently completed an apprenticeship under Jeffrey McLaughlin and the rest of the staff, and will be licensed for cosmetology soon. The team insisted I go through with an apprenticeship because I have demonstrated a natural ability for hair styling. Not only do I apprentice and manage the salon, but I am also attending Eastern Michigan University for my master’s degree in Non-Profit Management.
There’s nothing I love more than products and styling hair. My favorite new styling tool is the deep waver — I love that it adds the same type of texture as a curling iron but it can be worn sleek and sophisticated or “beachy” and big! I believe that hair, make up, and nails are accessories and can really make or break a look… so I feel it’s important to have fun with it and try new things.
I take pride in Renew Salon and Spa, and treat it as if it were my baby. I am always seeking for ways to improve guest services, as well as take care of the team. I am committed to keeping the Renew family happy, because when they are happy, our clients are happy. I could not ask for a better group of girls, and Jeffrey of course, to work with… they are truly like family to me.
