I’m experienced in Wella, Redken, Goldwell, Logics, Matrix, Kenra, and Pravana. I love to give the knowledge I have to my clients so they can better achieve their hair goals; from their everyday styling routine to a few basic tips and tricks.

Being a Colorado native and getting to grow up here and California with a mom in the hair industry was nothing short of exciting! For the last 15 years I’ve been able to do what I absolutely love! Getting to make others feel confident and beautiful are the highlights of my day. I want my clients to look forward to their appointments.

Laughter, conversation and great hair is what I do. I’ve been told I’m fast, but I’m always efficient. Ongoing Education is a must as our industry is constantly changing.

I specialize in color and extensions, those are my passion. I love seeing the transformation and my client’s face light up when I add length or fullness to their hair.

I’m experienced in Wella, Kuen, Pravona, Redkin, Goldwell. I’m certified in Balayage, Ombre, Hair Painting, Extensions, Brazilian Blowout, KeratinComplex, Olaplex, haircutting, and much more. Knowledge is key, not just for me as a stylist, but to also be able to show you while you’re at home how to achieve your desired looks. I cant wait to get you in my chair and see what we can create!

Here’s a little about me:

After 15 years in the industry, I’ve learned that a thorough consultation is key to a positive salon experience. Understanding your expectations when it comes to desired look, the amount of time you want to spend on styling, your styling capabilities, and the amount of maintenance you’re comfortable with all play a part in the success of your visit.

I started my career at a top salon in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For the first two years I specialized in the art of cutting.

  I believe no head of hair is the same, that’s why I finish my haircuts with dry detail work; it allows me to personalize a cut to the individual’s hair type and texture.

I then moved to Fort Collins, where I got the opportunity to join the bel ami family.  This is where I fell in love with color and the endless creative possibilities it brings. With countless continuing education classes under my belt, I would love to help you achieve all of your hair goals.

Here’s a little about me:

I grew up in North Dakota and have had a passion for all things beauty since I was a little girl getting into my mother’s makeup. My favorite past-time was to paint my sister’s face with vibrant hues of any color I could get my hands on…or gifting her with fabulous haircuts with my kids craft scissors. All that practice couldn’t be wasted! So I decided to follow my natural talent and fascination to take the profession seriously and attended Regency cosmetology school in Minneapolis, MN.

After graduating, I worked for MAC Cosmetics as a makeup artist for 2 years. Later I was hired for a new opportunity at the prestigious family owned salon chain Rocco Altobelli in Edina, MN. After the initial completion of their extensive Advanced Academy Specialty training program, I worked there for 9 years, building an impressive client base.

My clients’ satisfaction has always been my priority, which I believe is what lead to my high demand as a client favorite. This reputation granted me the honor of being featured as the cover of Edina Magazine, as a stand out artist, along with a generous feature article.

I recently said goodbye to my family of coworkers and clients in MN, to start a new journey as a Hairstylist and Makeup artist based at Bel Ami Salon in Fort Collins, Colorado. At Bel Ami Salon I specialize in hair coloring, lash extensions, and beauty makeup; including on-site for events.

I have brought with me all of my past experience, love of keeping up on new trends and techniques with continued education, the goal to help my clients look good to feel good, but most importantly an open heart for all my new friends in this community!

Here’s a little about me:

I am Originally from Costa Rica, I moved to Las Vegas when I was sixteen. Through my travels, I have seen and embraced many different hairstyles and trends. I followed my heart and my family to Colorado about 3 years ago, where I love the mountains, the food scene and enjoying a few cold beers on a warm patio with my dog!

In the salon, I have become most passionate about coloring hair — balayage, fantasy color transformations, expert grey coverage and tackling tricky color corrections.

I am also Brazilian Blowout certified and enjoy working with curly hair. After doing hair for over 6 years, I have learned how to listen to each client, offer them professional and personalized advice, and to ultimately deliver them their dream look.
