I have to say, it’s not “Just Hair.” Working in beauty can be life changing. When my guests look good and feel confident we are both empowered.
I pride my work on in depth consultation and honesty. I take notes, we look at photo inspiration. Then I collaborate a look with my clients and teach them how to recreate it at home.
I have been in this industry for 5 years. Even longer, as I grew up and apprenticed in a family salon, sweeping hair and serving people in Oklahoma. Through the opportunity of assisting two of my older sisters, and the owner of Revel 8, Claire Buchanan-Westland, I was inspired to build a life from beauty, hard work and caring about people.
I come from a loud, large, family that loves musicals and quoting movies. Naturally, from pre-school on I was drawn to acting and later the idea of transformation. I learned that as a character, you can conquer; with a little hair/makeup/wardrobe you can be whoever you want.
I want to bring that sense of renewal and also luxury to those who sit in my chair. I’m in a happy place when expanding my skills and knowledge with the best products and techniques that help me give that experience.
Currently, I’m inspired by natural texture, color corrections, hair painting, braiding and up styling, men’s coloring and grooming, classic looks with modern polish, beauty and editorial makeup.
When I’m not making art or plotting travel, you may see me walking my dog-ters Rajah and Sheebah, with my most amazing partner Emily, near our home in Uptown, Oklahoma City. We do a lot of outdoors, pizza and home improvement.
Every day I am elevated by and fall in love with my career. I feel grateful that I am surrounded by gifted and caring artist-entrepreneurs, who inspire me to push beyond the “limits” of my craft. Connecting and creating is magic. My goal as a stylist and a human is simple, to empower (myself and) others to evolve into and enjoy the best version of themselves.
