Using my 20 years of industry experience and advanced razor training at Bumble University in NYC, I create low-maintenance haircuts and color that work with your natural texture. I have naturally curly hair myself, and appreciate the customized approach required to work with different hair textures. Using a razor, shears, and the gentlest possible haircolor formulations, I will provide you with a style that grows out with ease and requires minimal daily maintenance.
I love to do creative cuts such as shags, Euro-mullets, and pixies, but am equally comfortable providing a subtle modern twist to the classics, or preserving length while adding texture to longer hair. I also love working with mature clients who don't want "old lady" hair, or mothers who don't want "soccer mom" hair.
For color services, I specialize in looks that could be natural, but look like you're just blessed with really great hair. Or color effects that are creative, but don't look like you're trying too hard.
No matter your hair length or texture, you will walk away from my chair with a balanced, effortless look that will grow out easily while expressing your individuality.

What's the parking situation?
Like many older buildings in central Clintonville, we have street parking. There are spots right along High Street, and around the corner on California Ave. It is very rare that you wouldn't be able to find a spot within 1 block of the salon.
Which service should i book?
When you click "Book Now," each of my services has a complete description. If you're still not sure which one is right for you, shoot me an e-mail!
I strongly recommend that first-time clients book the "New Client or New Look" appointment, because that will give us plenty of time to talk about what your hair is like, which style would work for you today, and come up with a plan for the future.
If you would like to book a color service, please schedule a free virtual Zoom consultation, also found in online booking.
how do you determine your pricing?
My pricing is not based on gender or age, but solely on the amount of time required for each service. I have recently reworked my service menu to increase the amount of time I spend with each client, to give us plenty of time for consultations, and to personalize and finish your hair. I find I do better work when I'm not rushed and stressed. (Go figure!)
what's the best way to reach you?
I have very real phone anxiety--I don't know what it's about, but I put off making phone calls and hate talking on the phone.
So e-mail is usually the best way to reach me, or you can text 614.447.3313. Fridays and Saturdays are my days off so I usually don't check messages on those days, but I will get back to you as soon as I can!
