Empowering hairstylists across the country
Meet Our Travel Team!
Q) How long have you been in the industry? A) I’ve been in the industry for 14 years!
Q) What made you want to start educating? A) When I started back at work, I felt so lost. I didn’t have any idea what I was doing. I made it a priority to find any education I could, and nothing beat the feeling of learning something and having that “aha” moment where I fully understood the “why’s” behind things. It built my self-confidence and quite frankly, changed my life. I became forever grateful to the educators who helped me (and continue to help me) find my way....and I became passionate about helping others, too, and trying to spread that feeling around. I came to the realization that the best platform that I could achieve this was to become an educator myself!
Q) Why do you love being an educator? A) Being an educator is so special because it puts you in a position to impact, empower, and change lives by helping others gain the tools they need to better themselves and their career. To be someone who gets to spend time connecting with people and helping them gain more self-confidence is one of the best feelings in the world.
Q) Why do you love being apart of Salt Society? A) Salt Society was one of the main platforms that changed my life, literally. So to be able to be a part of, and educate for the company and team who first educated me is an absolute, full circle dream come true!
Q) What is your specialty? A) I fell hard in love with Balayage, so that’s what I threw myself into whole heartedly. Because of that, I would definitely say that creating dimension with free hand painting is my biggest strength.
Q) What can your students expect from taking one of your classes? A) My main goal is to really give people the tools they need to help gain self-confidence behind the chair. I think it’s so important to not only teach a technique, but to also explain the “why” behind it. I know what it’s like to take a class and still have tons of questions, and not feel confident enough to try what I learned on someone because I didn’t fully understand the what’s, when’s, or why’s. Which is why, as an educator, I can be a little relentless to make sure that everyone understands everything completely before I am done. They should also expect to gain an instant friend and personal cheerleader!
Q) What is one fun/quirky fact about you? A) I am introverted and akward as ever, but I consider that part of my weird “charm.” But I also love HARD and love connecting with people. I like to be instant best friends with people...I don’t really have a middle ground between stranger and potential bestie!
Q) How long have you been in the industry? A) 9 years (since I was 17)
Q) What made you want to start educating? A) Deep down, I think I have truly always wanted to teach. I have been educating for years in salons and teams I’ve been apart of without even realizing I desired to teach. This caused me to gain a spark for sharing this craft! I love to teach on products, formulas and new techniques to help other stylists on their path, and I am also a nerd when it comes to business methods and entrepreneurship! To see someone else perk up at something you teach is the best fruit to see!
Q) Why do you love being an educator? A) I love being an educator because I love to touch other’s lives and teach what I have learned!I love that we all have unique things to share and teach each other, and it’s an honor to be able to do that with hair education.

Q) What is your specialty? A) My gifting and specialty in life is my heart and way with people! I’ve been told I have much woo!

Q) How long have you been in the industry? A) Since August 2010! That was the summer I realized I didn’t need four years of college to reach my goal, and took the first step toward my dream career. I dove head first into the industry, and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made!
Q) What made you want to start educating? A) Ever talk to someone so passionate about something they can’t shut up about it?! That’s me. I couldn’t help but want to share all the career-shifting information I was learning, so I started organizing classes of my own!
Q) Why do you love being an educator? A) Beyond my initial desire to want to share and set fire to the things I’m passionate about, I live to inspire growth and betterment.

Q) What is your specialty? A) I guess I would define my specialty by what I am most passionate about, which is painting! I was introduced to the chip brush by Ms. Jamie Sea, and that was it. I fell love creating a perfect amount of lightness and depth, to play up the hair's natural level and tone! With hair painting I have the combination of creativity, control, and instant gratification on that seamless blend. I live for lived-in!!

Q) What is one fun/quirky fact about you? A) I am often a middle-aged woman trapped in a 28 year old body. I’m a total homebody and say things like “No news is good news”. My ideal Saturday night involves sitting on my deck with a glass of wine. My favorite band is Fleetwood Mac. And I sometimes wish I had grown up in the 70s!
Q: How long have you been in the industry? A: 9 years.
Q: What made you want to start educating: A: I’ve always been a sponge and want to soak up as much knowledge about something I am passionate about. By mentoring other stylists I have learned even more than I thought possible. Having someone encourage you in an uplifting environment is not only beneficial to the person learning, but creates a positive change in them that they carry forward in their career.
Q. Why do you love being an educator? A: Like a lot of educators, I feel intense joy when I see another stylist gain confidence in an area they felt like they needed more training on. When you really can grab their attention and give them more tools to succeed- you see it on their face and I can relate, I’ve been there!

Q: What is your speciality? A: I always loved Chemistry/Sciences and art in School and wanted to somehow bring them both together and here I am! Ive always been a people person so with all of my passions combined; I can speak to someone clearly and effectively, explain the why’s and how’s behind how color or products work and the why, all while having fun and creating their dream hair. I tend to gravitate towards blondes since they took me a lot longer to figure out and now that I have gotten a handle on them, I can’t stop!
Q: What can your students expect from taking one of your classes? A: I try to find a way to speak to everyone; by finding out where someone feels their weakness lie, I can find a way to break it down and give you the confidence and knowledge to break through that thought process. You then will excel where you might not have felt like you could before because now you know the how’s and “whys”.
Q: What is one fun/quirky fact about you? A: I could still walk on my hands/handstand while 9 months pregnant and I love making funny voices, I’ve always wanted to be the voice of a cartoon.
