I am very adventurous with my hair. My hair is one of my favourite parts of me and what I love most about it is how I am able to achieve different facial looks with different hairstyles. My normal hair routine is to have it washed and the style changed every 2 weeks and sometimes, every week. I relax my hair as well and I do this every quarter. In all, I love my hair.

I’m loving growing my natural hair back. My natural hair journey changed when I discovered de-tanglers. I noticed that my hair’s been retaining it’s length and breaks no more. I am having a great time guessing how long it will grow. Each new length leads to a new style; a different fun way to show up.
I’m a graphic designer by trade so my creative nature extends to my look (most days). I love change & lots of colour so naturally, I take it out on my hair. Cut, colour or extensions - I prefer to do my own hair - you name it, chances are I’ve tried it. I’ve learned a lot along the way and while I’m no professional hair person, I can give some great pointers from a personal point of view.
I’ve been a commercial-educator, assessor and qualified hairdresser with over 18 years’ experience. I believe that I have been blessed with strong analytical and technical skills and see hair as a canvas and hairstyling as an art. This inspires me when I begin creating styles. I specialise in both wet hair and dry hair and have a proven track record of combining a strong product knowledge with excellent training skills. As an artist and educator, my goal is to educate, inspire and compel stylists to be all that they can be and I care to share my craft with other passionate professionals, much like myself.
