Ready for a change of pace, I moved to Denver. I knew Matthew Morris Salon was the only option that would give me the same feel and opportunities that I would have in NYC. I completed the rigorous apprenticeship program.Bridal and Effortless pretty hair are my passion. I want it to be easy for you to style and wear when you leave the salon. I love being with people and teaching clients the tools they need to feel great and be successful outside the salon. My passion for this industry and making people feel their best is what I attribute to my success.How lucky am I to be in an environment with so much talent, personality, and opportunity for growth!
