The Artistry Behind the Science: Colour Consulting, Colour Goal Setting & Colour Corrective Work.

For three decades I have worked as a hair technician for my beloved community, forming friendships and connections that go beyond the salon. Natural Evolution is an extension of my beliefs in community, beauty and sustainability. After facilitating thousands of transformations I can honestly say that nothing has the power to transform like a truly beautiful colour.

While styling and cuts have enabled me to unify my craft, achieving gorgeous colour for my clients is my passion. By focusing on colour, I’m able to achieve the glossy, vibrant, long-lasting results my clients deserve. Combining my years of experience, with a deep understanding of the science, I love working with my clients on everything from subtle enhancements to major changes and back again, all without compromising the integrity of the hair.

I care about my clients’ results, and I believe that how we achieve them matters. For that reason, I only work with the sustainably-made Davines line of products. This high-end Italian brand is results-driven, and dedicated to the kind of beauty that is ethically tended.

From blondes to brunettes, reds, silvers, and everything in between, I believe anything is achievable with patience, exceptional products, and skilled execution.

With 18 plus years of experience I have come to realize the magic that can be created behind the chair with a great visual consultation of what each guest is desiring for their hair journey. "Being a hairstylist is a beautiful, creative and holistic profession that I take pride in."

In an ever-changing industry, I'm always evolving with my guests to become the artist I want to be. In the last 18 years I have attended hair shows, gained education and entered competitions earning winning recognition. The artistry of colour is my passion and carefully getting the results while keeping the health of the hair, this is why I stand behind Davines colour line as it's high-end Italian brand offers a gentle and beautiful outcome. I have also come to realize the power of healing that our hands have to offer and with this I always offer a holistic scalp massage with each service to offer relaxation and peace.

When I am not behind the chair, I am raising three beautiful daughters and always finding time to be in my gardens or tending to our property.
