I am the consummate professional. If I tell you that I am going to be at a shoot at a specific time, that means that I will be there 15 minutes earlier than the time requested and set up and ready to go by call time.
I am a Vidal Sassoon graduate. I have been an educator for Nioxin, Paul Mitchell, Redken, and my own extension company Flawless Hair Extensions. I am a Board Certified Haircolorist, a Precision Haircutter, a Make up Educator for Paul Mitchell. My hairstyling kit consists of only Paul Mitchell Products. I have been featured on E!Tv for my haircoloring and extensions. I believe strongly in their beauty and versatility. With make up I tend to pick and choose my fav products from different lines, but they are always professional quality. I am also available for services within the salon that I manage in Pasadena, California called The Lake Salon and Skin Spa.
I specialize in vintage styling, avant guard, editorial, bridal, run way, and red carpet. I am always open to TF shoots provided that everyone on the shoot is professional. I will NOT do erotic nudity. I am not a prude, but it is not a direction that I would like to take my portfolio in. If you would like a reference on me, please feel free to contact anyone in my top 12 as I have worked with all of them.
I do make custom hair pieces and wigs. They tend to be on the avant guard side. However, I cannot do them for TF anything. They are costly and time consuming and since I can only shoot once with them, I might as well hand them off to the person that paid for them. If you would like rates on wigs and hair pieces please contact me to discuss pricing.
My rates are reasonable, and I have a passport and am willing to travel with enough notice.

PS> I am the manager of the salon I work in. This means that I have responsibilities to the salon and its customers. I am unable to do any TF on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays. Mondays are my best day to catch me!

What is your favorite fashion website? (list the WEBSITE address)
this years hair and make up trends are all over the place. The one thing that has been able to withstand the test of our economic downturn is the simplicity of classics. A well done red lip will never go out of fashion. A sharp haircut with clean lines and shiny glossy color, will never go out of fashion. You can try all of the latest trends that slip through our fingers just as quickly as homes are being repossessed... But life always looks better with a little simple classic elegance.
This sounds very interesting, I'm currently building an online boutique where I will sale my own line as well as other indie designer lines and accessories. I'd like to know how you could help me with the lookbook? Are you a graphic designer as well? I know you are doing your thing but I could use some good interns. My website is Thesisworld.spruz.com you can create a profile there as well and explore our content. I thank you for seeing our potential and any energy you put into it.
