I always have loved the beauty industry. I grew up around it.
My Mom was a hair stylist. She started her career at 19 and was able to have her salon in our home. So I can honestly say I have been around it my entire life.
I began my career in my home town of Alexandria after I graduated from cosmetology school in St. Cloud in 1995. I moved to the twin cities in 1999 after excepting a position as a hairstylist.
I have worked at a handful of great salons in the two cities since I moved here in ‘99. I’ve also have gotten the chance to work with some AMAZING hair stylists and professional products in my career! I’ve worked with top end products such as RedKen, Kerastas, Matrix, Bumble and Bumble, and Arrojo . I was honored to have been trained by Nick Arrojo. I attended his school in NYC.For a razor class and a textured class.(essentially a modern day perm class)I do love a good perm😍
The most recent place I’d been was at Brian Graham Salon in the North Loop in Minneapolis. I had been there for 8.5 years before the 2020 pandemic hit. As many of our future were affected in 2020 I was sad how it hit our industry so hard. BGS ended up closing on December of 2020.
I was excited to hear about Urban Village Salon in the north loop from a friend. I’m so grateful she told me about their two locations! I am so happy to now be part of this UVS family at the North Loop location.
It’s such a inviting, beautiful, safe, comfortable environment to create and work in.
I can also say I’m being induced to some more amazing hair products! UVS carries Davines and Orbie products. Also, the brand statement for men.
I’m excited to have stayed in the north loop area here in Minneapolis. I’m here for you whenever you need help in any of your hair needs!
