I have always had a passion for the beauty/fashion industry; even at the age of about 8 years old, I told my mom that I wanted to be a hairstylist. She didn’t fully believe that’s what I really wanted until I moved into high school and continued to show interest in that career field. I did go on to beauty school at Capitol School of Hairstyling in Omaha, NE, and graduated there in May 1998. I then began working at Hair Biz Salon (now called John Edwards Salon and Day Spa) and have worked there since June 1998.
I was introduced to personal color analysis around 2011 through a very good friend. With all of my cosmetology training, I didn’t give much credit to the validity of color analysis. My friend had already been draped, and after some time passed, I started to see the positive changes in her clothing, hair, and makeup. I then started to ask her more and more questions about it. Then in spring 2013, I was draped as a Light Summer and started my color journey. It was all very intriguing to me. I started having a desire to learn more about personal color analysis and to look into becoming an analyst myself. After some personal family problems, I wanted a job that I could work from home and be with my kids, so I decided to fully pursue this as another career boost to my already thriving cosmetology business. I went and received my training with Terry Wildfong in August 2016. During my training, Terry and I re-draped me as part of my training. Through the more thorough analysis, we came to find me as a Dark Winter. I feel much more at home in these colors! I’m excited to help others find their colors so they can look their best and be more confident when buying clothing, makeup, jewelry, and other fashion purchases.
