My Specialty: 
I would have to say my ever-evolving fascination with hair color is my specialty. I thrive on hair color challenges such as corrective color or my all time favorite, “Ooops…I did it myself.” I pride myself in having a strong skill set in working with blondes, Ombré, and customized color techniques. Also, at Atelier, I have provided many celebrity inspired looks as the extension specialist working closely with Platinum Seamless Extensions.
