"As lead facilitator to top ranked salons around the world, I always felt there was something missing. While my experiences were amazing, I wanted to create a space where clients felt special and given my undivided attention. I opened an exclusive boutique salon in Plano, Texas where I provide a uniquely individualized experience to each of my clients."
