  • I am thrilled at the opportunity to make changes to your hair. I look forward to it.

  • Changes in color require additional time. Some changes require multiple steps   Are you going blonder?  Are you going darker?  Do you want pastel hair? Do you want Rainbow hair? Do you want to be purple? Have you been coloring it at home for years and you want to make a change? Do you want to let your natural grow in and need some help making it look silver?  I will do everything I can to honor your request to make a big change without  notice but science and your hair sets the limit to what can be done in one appointment
