I went to beauty school on a whim because I wanted to do hair for indie films back in 2002.
I stayed behind the chair because I love making women feel beautiful.
In 2018 my girlfriend, infant son and I were evicted from San Francisco and moved to Oakland to begin the next chapter of our lives. I am a living example of the power of community that helped my little family transition. I am now completely in love with this suburban mom life, sharpening a new generation of people like arrows in between Costco trips. I am a recovering triathlete with a fetish for vintage motorcycles and smashing the patriarchy.
I have attended advanced classes at Bumble and Bumble, Redken and Pony Education in New York and San Francisco. I cut hair with both scissors and straight razor. While I was pregnant in 2016 I became one of a handful of Bay Area hairstylists to get certified in Ouidad curly haircuts. Ouidad cuts are a certified technique to puzzle and organize curls on top of each other to maximize their potential. I specialize in natural texture, curls and waves using scissors and straight razor. I love cutting curls, waves and natural textures because it feels like sculpture.
The trust guests give to me to do gender affirming hair is a gift from the goddess.
I am extremely conscious that all haircuts affirm gender. I am grateful everyday for the privilege to contribute to queer culture and our community through hair.
