LEVEL 2 – Brentwood
Home town: Knoxville, Tn
Education: I graduated from the Douglas J Aveda Institute of Knoxville in 2013. I then immediately started working in a Redken elite salon in Knoxville, where I was employed for two years. In my spare time, I assisted with photo shoots, did bridal and prom hair/makeup, and theatrical makeup. I have attended Redken Symposium in Las Vegas and the Salon Centric Hair Show in Myrtle Beach. I have also attended hands on classes with: Sam Villa, Ruth Roche, Wendy Belanger, Jerric Fruits, Jen Plank, Andrew Carruthers, Brayden Pelletier, Ty Isobe, and Lori Zabel.
Celebrity styles she admires: The Olsen twins, Mila Kunis, Candis Swanepoel, The Kardashians, and Lady Gaga
What inspired her to pursue a career in cosmetology? "I have always been artistic and into doing hair/makeup. I would watch T.V./movies and pay close attention to what the process was to transform them in characters. I decided last minute before high school graduation that I wanted to make a career out of it. My goal in life is to become a hair and makeup artist for the film industry in Hollywood. Of course the guidance along the way and the amazing teachers and mentors have inspired me the most."
