Hair was an integral part of my upbringing. With multiple cosmetologists in my family, weekends were spent with my grandmother getting her hair glossed and set and us little ones reluctantly getting our hair ready for the school week. Later, as a biracial queer teen, I found immense comfort and individuality in expressing myself through hair and makeup. So it was no surprise to me or anyone else when I chose a career in the beauty industry.

I am extensively trained in curly-hair cutting and hair-lightening services for all types and textures. I find my passion not only in creating beautiful hair, but also in building relationships and community through my role as Salon Director of The Bird House Bushwick. I’m light-hearted, loyal, and 100% committed to giving every single Bird House client the best possible experience.

M y hair journey started when I was very young. My sister was pursuing cosmetology in Kosovo and would bring me with her to school. After the war there in 1999, she wasn’t able to continue her training but would sit in front of the mirror blowing out her curly hair section by section, and it became like a meditation for me to watch her. Later, I was trained at The Salon Professional Academy in Nashville, Tennessee where I then became an educator. Although I loved teaching and the connection I had with my students I decided to start my journey behind the chair where I focused on building a safe environment to hear my clients’ stories and help them build a look that represents their deepest selves.

My roots are in shaggy cuts and mullets but with the flick of my wrist I’ll create a soft long-layered shape that will grow out effortlessly. My heart is in enhancing the beauty of everyone’s natural texture through razor and precision based cutting, and in creating soft dimensional color.

I always knew I wanted to be in a field where I’m socializing and constantly meeting new people. But figuring out my place in the world more specifically was difficult, until one day I woke up and decided to attend cosmetology school at Aveda NYC. It was a bit of an impulsive decision, but the best decision I ever made! Making people feel like the best version of themselves is a dream come true—a dream I didn’t even realize I had!

I love working with curly hair, creative colors, and creating a perfectly finished look. In my free time I am a devoted plant mom, and I love to experience outdoor life with my two pups. Despite growing up in this busy city, I like to live a really chill and laid back life.

W hile studying Economics at Virginia Commonwealth University, I could never visualize a future for myself in that field. I craved a profession that allowed me to express my artistic side. When a close friend opened her own salon, I saw the inner workings of the industry and realized it was exactly what I was looking for!

Specializing in high-impact blondes, rich luxe tones, and color corrections, I am well versed on hair chemistry and health. (Hair health is my number one priority!) I know exactly how far you can push your hair to achieve the look you want. In my chair, you’ll not only leave with the hair you’d hoped for, but you will have also learned about how it thrives, and what products and lifestyle is required to ensure you maintain its health and structure.

A s a teenager, I went to live with my grandparents in Mexico, and that’s when I realized I wanted to be a hairdresser. At 21 I came back to The States to pursue my career and enrolled in the Manhattan Hair Design Institute. Since then, I’ve had the honor to serve many incredible clients, including several Broadway stars. These years have been the best years of my life!

I’ve also had the incredible opportunity to take classes with many renowned artists, always learning and perfecting my craft. I love creating live-in, effortless color, long layers, lobs and reds, but the thing I love the most about being a hairdresser is being able to connect with you.

With my fun and sassy personality and your vision for your hair, I hope you’re ready to have an amazing experience in my chair.

I ’ve always been fascinated by how hair can transform a person’s appearance, express their personality, and give them confidence. My curiosity eventually evolved into a career, where I received extensive training and experience at Sally Hershberger, under my mentor Tim Rogers. Living in NYC, I’ve been privileged to be a part of one of the most diverse communities of creatives, mentors, and friends through this craft. My greatest joy in doing hair is the chance to collaborate with each person who sits in my chair and make them feel like their best self.

I love working with different textures, and playing with movement and shape. My goal is to create tailored haircuts by listening to the story each client and their hair tells me. When I’m not at the salon I spend my time with my friends and loved ones, geeking out about art and music, and tryna be zen.

A t age 5, I was determined to have my dream bob so I cut my own hair in the bathroom with my best friend and a pair of craft scissors. As you can imagine, it didn’t go as planned but a seed was planted. After assisting in Brooklyn for several years, I’m now behind the chair and am so grateful to have found my hair home at The Bird House. Every day I am surrounded by talented artists and endless support in a beautiful and safe environment. I consider myself a lively native New Yorker and in my free time I enjoy sewing, staying busy with a variety of projects and hobbies, roller skating and enjoying the outdoors.

I love big transformations, working with all textures, and guiding my clients through color corrections. My goal as your stylist is to bring your visions to life, to make you feel comfortable and confident in my chair and to have you feeling like your most authentic, beautiful self!

G rowing up queer amidst the height of scene culture, tumblr, the warped tour, etc. during the late 2000s meant your hair was your ticket to escape. I started experimenting with bleach and direct dye pastels from manic panic, and, for once, felt included in a community. A couple years later, after playing keys and singing background vocals for Adore Delano, in the Til Death Do Us Party tour, I found myself moving to New York City on a mission to create a life of complete liberation. Somehow I managed to fall into night school part time at the Aveda Institute in Soho while I assisted stylists during the day at a boutique salon in Tribeca. With having a Gemini moon, being in a fast pace, hustle culture felt right to me.

Four years later, between the education from Seagull Salon in the West Village and the legendary Marie Robinson salon in Flat Iron, I started creating looks with color ranging from fantasy vivids, to beachy, sun kissed naturals, to seamless grey blends. Between playing music and studying astrology, I’ve now begun to cultivate a legendary community right here at The Bird House in Bushwick alongside an amazing team! I cannot wait to meet you, help bring your dreams to life, and show you what The Bird House is all about.

I loved doing hair as a teenager and knew I had a talent, and after having my son Amir at 21, my path became clear. Now, here I am, fulfilling my lifelong dream of helping people feel and look beautiful one head at a time.

I love empowering my clients to embrace their beauty within. I work with all hair types, from straight to coils, and I specialize in braiding. I love showcasing my creativity on my clients, whether it be via a freestyle braid or a bomb 90’s layered cut.
