Our stylists come from across the country and are among Denver's best. Vidal Sassoon, Paul Mitchell and Wella are some of their training grounds. Denver Fashion Week and 303 Magazine's nominations and People's Choice awards are among their credentials. Education, experience, demand (newness to area) and stylist preference influence their respective pricing.
I have been in the industry for almost eight years now and loving it more than ever. I come from the number one salon in my area of Chicago where I was a senior stylist, educator, and a member of the creative team for photoshoots. I’m inspired by streetwear and counterculture. I love simple and messy hair that is still edgy and creative. I think each client is unique and their hair should be too. I love doing balayage, big changes, and beachy textures yet I remain very well rounded as a stylist.
Fashion, art, and continuous change are a few of my favorite things. I found my love for the fashion world at a very young age. Largely influenced by the music scene, I have always been drawn to the creative things in life.
I received my cosmetology education in San Diego at the Paul Mitchell School. While in school I played a major role within the design team, traveling putting on events. Through the years I have stayed current and excited about the industry by attending classes both online and in person, frequenting fashion and hair shows, and following the trends of top stylists.
I have been passionate about hair for as long as I can remember. In high school I got a receptionist position at a local salon in Fort Collins, CO (where I am a native). I fell so in love with hair styling and attended school as early as possible. Fast forward to today and I have over a decade of experience as a stylist and truly fall more in love with my career each year.
Ten years into my career I know that I work in a constantly evolving industry. I continuously seeking out advanced education both locally and nationally. I have taken several classes at Toni&Guy, including their Modern Classic Cuts and Modern Classic Color Programs. I have traveled to Unite Academy for courses in creative and editorial styling. Most recently I finished an intensive program at the Wella Studio in Los Angeles where I earned the title of “Master Color Expert”.
My strong background in industry education allows me to truly understand a client’s wants. I am able to transform their words into a unique and tailored style for each individual. I enjoy everything from the most classic styles to creating those that are more cutting edge.
While my first passion is her career in hair, I also love living in my home state of Colorado, where I am able to get outdoors and explore. Recently I purchased a 125-year-old home, my first home in Denver, and I am excited about slowly renovating it. My Boston Terriers Champ and Rosie love it equally as much.

These are a few ways I would describe my approach to Hair Styling and Fashion. While working with clients over the last 17 years, from Boulder to San Francisco, and now in Denver I enjoy helping individuals find their personal style. Using what you are naturally given to create the best version imaginable. My goal is to connect and guide you in embracing your natural texture and celebrate the possibilities of what can be created.
I love creating hair colors that naturally occur from spending time outside. As well as recreating the deep and bright hues you see in nature. A large part of my lifestyle is being active outdoors, snowboarding, hiking, biking and traveling. This is why I embrace my curls and natural texture to keep things simple and represent how I feel- free and easy going.
Keeping things fresh is important to me. I continue to challenge myself by taking advanced education and will challenge you to try new looks. Over the years I have taken classes in New York at Bumble and Bumble, in Los Angeles with Nick Arrojo, as well as ongoing current classes with Pony Studios Education in San Francisco.
In addition to joining this amazing crew of Stylists at Goldie x Bob, I will be continuing to travel to San Francisco to see clients and keep my eyes, and fingers on the pulse of what is happening with hair and fashion trends on my favorite coast!
I look forward to meeting you at Goldie x Bob.
I have been in the beauty industry for eight years. I have been working in Nashville, TN for all of my career doing and have learned and honed my skills in many ways throughout those years. Currently, I enjoy creating depth and dimension with highlighting and coloring techniques for a lived-in look that grows out easily. I enjoy enhancing natural hair texture through organic haircutting and styling as well. I want my guests to have healthy hair and each appointment is a process to get closer to that goal.
