About me

I have always been passionate about beauty and style. After receiving my degree in fashion design and license in cosmetology, I honed my skills at top beauty destinations such as Kryolan Spain, Harvey Nichols, Bobbi Brown UK and London, Milan and Paris Fashion weeks. I work tirelessly to represent a unique, dynamic and current approach to makeup artistry, eyebrow shaping and hair styling. Training and education is my forte and I have incorporated a progress-based approach to direct and guide my team to enhance their artistry and provide eminent customer service. I have mastered an interpersonal approach to team training and this is the ethos and spirit I use to develop my teams, using performance development where required. I have nurtured and trained successful teams to demonstrated self awareness, confidence and professionalism that is evident to the clients. The skill competence and sophistication of the teams I train is a reflection of my expertise and experience within the artistry and education field.
