My number one goal as a hairstylist is to make you feel like the best version of yourself.  To make you feel beautiful and confident.

I have been obsessed with hair and make up since the age of 6, when my mother gave me her old eye shadow and lipstick to play with.  I began experimenting with my own looks and hairstyles and eventually started doing hair for all my friends and family.  By the time I graduated high school, I had spent 3 years directing hair and makeup for high school musicals.

I graduated from the Cinta Aveda Institute in San Francisco; apprenticed at Cinta Salon, and have had a wide variety of training; from Wella and Bumble & Bumble to Pravana and L’Oreal.

I would love to meet you and listen to your needs! Communication is key to having an amazing stylist-client relationship.  Come on in or call to make an appointment today! I look forward to meeting you!

From stealing the brush from my mom’s hands at the age of three, to being my friend’s personal stylist even before cosmetology school, my passion for doing hair started at an early age.  Part of what I love about being in this industry, is being able to give my clients the look they desire, while simultaneously expressing my creativity.

I highly value my relationships with my clients, and feel that a great personal connection is key to creating a comfortable environment for an enjoyable experience.  I feel strongly about both listening to, and understanding the goals and desires of my client.  Creating a style that makes my client look as beautiful on the outside as they feel on the inside is a truly rewarding experience.

In the ever changing beauty industry, staying up to date with current trends and techniques is essential, which is why I make sure to regularly attend advanced educational courses.  I feel confident that with my experience and education, I can provide you with a style that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.  I look forward to meeting you soon!

Since I was small I have loved doing anyone’s hair I could get my hands on.  I started doing my moms color for her when I was about nine years old!  I enjoy coloring, cutting and styling hair.  I do however especially LOVE cutting and styling.  My goal as a stylist is to make every guest look and feel amazing.  There is nothing more gratifying than someone leaving my chair feeling better and more confident about themselves.

I received my cosmetology education at Paul Mitchell the School East Bay in Pleasant Hill. It was a wonderful experience and I learned a lot about the many facets of this industry. I then completed an apprenticeship program after a year at an Aveda Salon in Walnut Creek, as well as additional week long cutting seminar from Vidal Sassoon in San Francisco.  Now I am happy to say I have found my home here in Danville at the Bellezza Cristali’s Hair Salon!  I cannot wait to do your hair!

As a professional stylist for almost 15 years in the hair and makeup industry, client relationships and connections is what I value most!  Hair is my art and I enjoy the process of transforming someone from start to finish.

I specialize in the art of color, including ombre, corrective color, dimensional foil highlighting and balayage.  I am always striving to learn new haircutting styles and techniques.  Certified in Keratin smoothing treatments and extensions, my education also varies from Tony & Guy, Kerastase to Shu Uemura.  Updo’s are also my forte as I absolutely love doing wedding and special event hair and makeup making clients feel beautiful on their special day!

If I’m not playing with my 10 year old daughters hair, I’m constantly watching Youtube hair and makeup tutorials, online hair webinars, or looking through magazines to keep me on the latest trends while at home.

Feel free to walk-in or schedule a consultation or appointment with me today!

For as long as I can remember I have always been in love with the beauty industry. At the age of eight I would make up hair commercials in the bathroom mirror and dream of being the how to girl in the Seventeen Magazine. I would save any and all babysitting money, birthday money and allowance I could conjure up to buy Estee Lauders Christmas Collection of makeup (only to have to sit in the closet for years until the day I was old enough to wear it.)  I begged and pleaded in my letters to Santa so that he would bring me the Rusk anti frizz solution that Kerri Mae, my stylist and favorite human on earth at the time, used on me.  I’ve been a stylist at heart since birth.

I attended and graduated from Paul Mitchell the School located in Provo, Utah. Having been (an official) stylist for 12 years, I am still in awe at the pleasure and enjoyment that my work provides me. I have been blessed to have traveled all over the nation to service clients and continue my education. From Bumble and Bumble, Kerastasse, and Tigi courses, I feel confident that I can keep my wide range of clientele happy with their new image that we create together.

I absolutely LOVE doing hair!  I am very passionate about people and making them feel special, comfortable, happy and beautiful.  By using my passion and extensive training for hair I am able to do this! I greatly enjoy my career as a stylist, and find it so rewarding to change or enhance my clients looks to bring out their best features. I graduated from the cosmetology program at Skyline College in San Bruno and earned my license in June of 2007.

I completed the apprenticeship program for cut, color, styling and up-dos at Changes Salon and Day Spa in Walnut Creek.  I then went on to train for color under the world renowned Gina Khan at the Gina Khan Salon in Walnut Creek to further enhance my knowledge of color. And now, at the beautiful Bellezza Cristali’s Salon, I use all of my knowledge and creativity to produce beautiful color, cut, styles, and up-dos.
