I have been in the salon business since 1985 and have gained experience at many salons in several states. I have always enjoyed my career of making people look and feel great!

In 2009 I decided to take on a new adventure and open Vanity Hair. Taking my "likes & dislikes" from previous salons, my goal is to create a comfortable environment for our clients and a positive atmosphere where the stylists WANT TO come to work.

Vanity Hair is a rental salon allowing the stylists to be independent yet able to enjoy a network of support from our "family of stylists". I am proud to be a part of this effort and will continue to service my loyal clients to the best of my ability as our family grows.

With over 125 years of combined experience and a strong "aim to please" attitude, I feel Vanity Hair can be your new home.

I grew up on a dairy farm a little outside of New Prague, but I always LOVED doing hair. I decided to go to beauty school right when I graduated high school. I have been doing hair since 2007. I worked at Cole's salon in savage for a few years and then at Cifelli's in Prior Lake. I decided in 2014 I wanted to be independent and that's when I discovered Vanity Hair. I absolutely loved the atmosphere from the moment I walked in the door! My clients have also loved the transition. I do men's, women's, and children's haircuts, color, highlights, ombre, and balyage—and I love doing them all. I like having a variety in my schedule and I take extra time on each of my client's needs for their specific hair. I do attend extra training and shows to further my knowledge and skills in the business. Most of all, I love hearing my client's stories and I love making them look and feel beautiful! I do my own scheduling, so call the salon to get my number and you can call or text at your convenience for your appointment!

I enjoy every aspect of my career in cosmetology. The challenges of coloring, cutting, and styling are a few of my favorites. To be challenged with a new style request is really my thing and provides me with fuel to think out of the box. Outside of the normal day services, the most rewarding part of cosmetology is the customer experience, new people and the establishing of long term relationships. At the end of the day there is no better feeling than knowing I have sent my clients on their way feeling and looking better than they arrived.

After 28+ years as a hairstylist, I still love my career and I value the personal relationships I have developed with my clients. I feel it's important to educate my clients on how to style the looks I have created. I keep up with new techniques and trends with continuing education classes. I use Redken and Schwartzkopf color lines.
