TEAM

Named by Brooklyn Magazine and New York Magazine as one of New York’s top stylists, I’m still blown away that I get to do this incredible work in my own studio. After spending basically my entire life styling and cutting people’s hair, I became officially trained by the brilliant minds at Union Square’s Carsten Aveda Institute, where I learned the fine art of French haircutting and color chemistry. I also quickly grew to understand and appreciate the emotional connection we all have with our hair, and it’s a truth I carry with me during every appointment. After completing my training, I began working at a high-end salon, and in 2011, I opened my own studio. Opening The Bird House has been a wonderful and thrilling adventure, and it is such an honor to have you as clients and friends.

BROOKE

MASTER STYLIST
CO-FOUNDER

 

Growing up, I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I used to think through various businesses I could open, dreaming of being in charge. Maybe it’s the Capricorn in me, but I’ve always been bossy… So when my sister, Brooke, opened a one-chair hair studio in what was basically a closet in Carroll Gardens, I was ready to put those aspirations into practice. Together, we moved her from that little studio to our current location, and it’s been an absolute dream come true. Building this business hasn’t been easy, but it’s been so beautiful, and we’re very proud of the space & team we’ve built. It is my greatest hope that at The Bird House, you experience more than just a great haircut and color, but that you feel you’ve found your hair home.

SALON DIRECTOR
CO-FOUNDER

I’ve had almost 2 decades of experience as a stylist and makeup artist, and I still love it so much—the variety it brings, the ability to get to know so many wonderful people, and the ability to mix artistry with technical skill. I specialize in color (I am  a Redken Certified Colorist), balayage, curly hair, keratin treatments, and thick hair textures. It’s so important to me that when you sit in my chair, we have a thorough, in-depth consultation, where we analyze your lifestyle, face shape and hair type to help create a personalized look that will also keep your hair healthy and happy.
My work has been featured in several editorial spreads and runways. I have a Bachelor’s degree in marketing and in my spare time, I love going to the beach whenever possible.

I’m one of those Brooklyn unicorns who was born and raised in NY, and I’m so proud to continue to call this place my home. I attended Paul Mitchell cosmetology school and fell in love with hairdressing the minute I started. Making people feel beautiful just brings me so much joy—I love meeting all different types of people and getting to hang out.
