Heather is a PNW native with a passion for balayage and bridal hair. Her love for creativity is what attracted her to the hair industry to begin with but it took her some time to figure out what exactly it was about hair that she loved.
After graduating from the Toni and Guy Hairdressing Academy in 2009 she began to feel uninspired by the whole 'full to partial highlight routine' and began to question why she as a hairdresser. She thought about quitting but soon heard the buzz about balayage and really wanted to learn. She took a few classes in her hometown, Spokane WA, but never felt like she learned a solid foundation to build off of. That's when she learned about independent balayage education - specifically Masters of Balayage. She took a chance and flew to California for a MOB class and was so happy she did because she learned so much.
As her confidence in her technique began to grow, so did her passion and love for balayage. Since that class she has grown an amazing clientele, opened her own studio and was named one of Modern Salons Top 100 for 2019. She is a true believer in continuing education because it gave her the confidence and skill set she needing to succeed.
Being able to inspire confidence in fellow stylists by teaching solid technique is so very important to her and is why she wanted to become a MOB educator. When she's not behind the chair you can find her hanging out with her husband and 2 daughters. She loves gardening and snowboarding, yoga, and daydreams often about traveling to other countries!
