I have worked in salons since I was 16 years old. From receptionist to assistant, colorist to owner; I believe every role in the salon is significant in creating a positive experience for the guest. I have taken my experience and paired it with my passion to build Blackbird into a space that feels comfortable, kind and elevated.
My speciality when it comes to hair is low maintenance. Feeling beautiful should not come with exhaustive schedules. Generally speaking, I love hair that enhances natural tones, textures and routines. I am best at lived in blondes and brunettes. I love rich, warm tones that have irresistible shine. I have also trained in perfecting placements that blend grey hair without coverage to get maximum wear without a harsh grow out. I value feeling on “trend” without swaying too far from what compliments a timeless glow.
Blackbird is a new chapter for me. I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business and creating a space where the people I love most are welcome and always feel beautiful. In all my years of coloring, I’ve also fallen in love with teaching the hair stylists of tomorrow and learning from my colleagues. Blackbird is so much more than a salon – it’s home.

I’m a 4th generation Washington DC hairstylist. I started doing hair at a young age and knew then it was something I would love everyday if I chose to do it as a career. I feel incredibly fortunate to have landed a career that I’m passionate about. I believe you can never stop learning or honing your craft, which is why 16 years into being a stylist, I crave staying up to date with the latest techniques and trends. When I’m not behind the chair you can find me elbow deep in motherhood, raising a teenager and two toddlers alongside my long time partner and high school sweetheart. Life is colorful and messy and I strive to find the magic in the smallest corners of our lives.
