Asheville’s loss is your gain! Miriam has been my stylist for the last four years, and she is, quite simply, the best. I have tons of curly, somewhat frizzy hair that needs just the right cut and products to look good. I’ve gone to some high-end curly girl salons, but Miriam doesn’t just have her technique down like these places do, she also styles to the individual. She’s amazing at color, too. I’ve had my hair fried before, so I was a little intrepid about getting highlights again, but she gave me the color I wanted without stripping my hair.

When I became a hair stylist in 2007, I was lucky enough to start working at a salon where the owners had realized that traditional hair cutting, coloring and styling techniques did not provide a satisfactory experience and result for our curly-haired clients, or for the stylists who worked with them. I took my first curl-focused class within a year out of hair school, and I fell in love! I’ve studied the DevaCurl® cutting and coloring techniques extensively, and have been educating stylists for DevaCurl® since 2013.

I just moved to from North Carolina to Minneapolis and I’m so excited to get my hands into some Midwestern curls. I specialize in cutting curls of all textures and lengths and both casual and formal styling. I also just love to listen, share, ask questions, connect, and make people feel relaxed, safe, and beautiful.

When I’m not in the salon, you'll catch me writing. My debut novel, a queer young adult historical fiction titled THE UNBINDING OF MARY READE, comes out February 2018 and I couldn't be more excited. I’m also an owner of too many small animals and way too much camping gear.
