OWNER / STYLIST
I have been blessed to have picked a rewarding and creative career.
I am currently a Hairdresser and salon owner of Blades Salon.
32 years behind the chair and a salon owner since 1997.
I continue to be passionate about my craft with continuing education with our professional brands we carefully choose.
Our salon culture is friendly, caring and educating our guests with a salon experience.
I joined the Blades team in March 2003 as the full time receptionist/salon coordinator. Throughout the years, the most rewarding aspect of my job has been the wonderful relationships I’ve built with clients, my coworkers, and other beauty industry professionals. I enjoy helping to make everyone’s salon experience relaxing and fun, and I feel incredibly blessed to be part of such an amazing and talented team! Outside of work, I enjoy dancing and aerial arts, vintage glamour and tiki culture, photography, travel, and -most especially- being a mom to my beautiful daughter.
I graduated from cosmetology school in 1986. Prior to my training, I was a make-up artist for a photographer in the modeling business. Through the years, I have specialized in hair pieces, hair extensions, nails, etc. Currently I own Mia Bella Salon Services and continue to provide specialized services to my clients. I love to do total makeovers, color, various nail.
