I started Cosmetology School in 2005 at the Adirondack Beauty School of Glens Falls, NY. A mother & daughter team that prepared me for the State Board Exam as well as taught the current trends, fads, and latest styles.
During 2009-2010, trained with Redken 5th Avenue, NYC where I discovered my knowledge of the Color Wheel from my high school days (thank you Mr. Fantauzzi... my art teacher) advanced my talent of accentuating skin tone & eye color with a flattering hair shade.
2010- Present, Schwarzkopf Professional
Through my distributor, Unique Salon Concepts, I had the pleasure of meeting Phillip Wilson, the last of the "Master Cutters" of the world. He taught me an incredible scissor over comb cutting technique for Bobs! Also had the pleasure of meeting Sally Lemmo, Owner of Lucia's located in Hudson, Ohio. An incredible Colorist & Barber! She taught me an interesting way of doing Ombre color with ponytails!
One important lesson I have learned so far with my career, is that you have to continue your education. There is always something new to learn. In this industry, there is no room for ignorance or pride. If you do not have the knowledge or experience to do what is asked of you, seek out the wisdom!
