Curl Power Founder, DevaCurl® Certified Stylist, and DevaCurl® Educator | Deva Cut: $102
I found my way to curly hair after career adventures in film making, music, puppetry, circus arts, and many social justice endeavors. My love for art and obsession with self empowerment led me to believe that if I could find a job where looking good, feeling good, being good (to the earth and each other) came together, I'd have it made. It turns out, the best way to live your dream, is to make it happen. Behold, the birth of Curl Power Salon. Artistry, Justice, Empowerment, Beauty.
Originally self taught, I did hair through four years of film school. I entered beauty school in 2007 after deciding I would rather work for myself than for Hollywood. I moved from Santa Fe, New Mexico to Minneapolis in 2010 to pursue work as a puppeteer. I started my curl education in 2011, became a DevaCurl® educator in 2012, and received my DevaCurl®Certification in 2014. My hair specialties include: creative and adventurous color from rainbow shades to natural tones and easing the process of transition to natural silver and gray. I love creating short and adventurous cuts, and I work with ALL textures of curl from the tightest tiny curl, to the loosest wave. I love a challenge. I especially invite my queer family of all genders to this salon, where we understand the importance of a safe and validating space to find and express who you are.
And, contrary to popular belief, curls and bike helmets CAN live in harmony.
