Senior Stylists

I am an experienced stylist with over 13 years in the industry. I am very passionate about hair and am always taking classes to learn the latest and greatest. I've worked with Goldwell color since day one, and have been Ouidad certified since joining Hair and Body Essentials. I enjoy working curly with hair and have attended the Goldwell Academy in Baltimore to even further my knowledge about the color line. So come in today and let me help you achieve your desired look!
I have been working in the industry since 2000. I'm artistic and have a passion for what I do. The industry is always changing and I'm always there to learn and be inspired! I constantly go to product and technique classes to keep me up to date. I want to use my experience to help clients achieve a look and style that works best for them and fits their lifestyle. My favorite part of my work is to do funky color and cuts because I feel they challenge my creativity the most. Formal styling is my favorite, since I love the sculptural art aspect of upstyles!
I attended cosmetology school while in high school through Saratoga Boces, graduated in 2003 and immediately started in the field. I worked at a few small shops before starting at Hair and Body Essentials in 2006, where I was educated in Goldwell color and products. I have attended many classes, as well as Goldwell Academy in Albany where I was recently certified as a Goldwell color specialist. I Specialize in the cutting and styling of thick textured hair, and formulating for blondes.
After working in this industry for nearly 9 years, I find I love it more and more. I have worked with a few color lines, mainly Goldwel, and have had numerous classes on coloring, highlighting, hair cutting and styling, as well as product lines. I love to do new colors and styles that change a look, but I most enjoy when my client leaves happy. I think it is important that we listen, offer ideas, and deliver what the client expects.

Nail Department

I have been an employee of Hair & Body Essentials since 2008! I received a degree in Marketing AAS and I am also a licensed Cosmetologist. After working as a receptionist and assisting hair stylists, I found that my best fit was to be a nail technician. The best aspect of the profession to me is meeting and interacting with clients, and really making clients feel good!
