Let's talk a little about how it all got started.

I grew up most of my life here in Dallas, Texas. I was born in Monterrey, Mexico but came to the US at a very young age. I started really liking hair styling in high school. I would see the girls at school with different hairstyles and it really gave me the curiosity of how that hairstyle was achieved. I bought magazines, saw hair videos, went to the library and picked out as many step-by-step hair styling books I could find. That is where my passion began. Fast forward to now, I have been doing Bridal hair for 7+ years. I did go to Cosmetology school and graduated from a great school, Paul Mitchell. Being a licensed Cosmetologist now, I still do hair cuts, color and etc. But my true passion lies behind formal and Bridal styling. I keep investing in myself by taking advanced Master Classes to become best I can be. I will always try to learn new trends and  techniques because I believe that the minute you stop learning is the moment you stop growing.

December 2019 I will be opening & co-owning

a Hair & Makeup Studio alongside my partner Crystal Zarazua. We would love to have you stop by and check

out our new place in Deep Ellum.
