In Her Words
  • Why did you choose to attend Z Hair Academy?

  • What is your favorite service?

    My favorite services to perform are anything dealing with curls. I love to create curly updos, work with braiding, or simply curl the hair.

  • What is your favorite hair product?

    My favorite hair product is the Joico K-PAK Reconstructing Shampoo and Conditioner. I love using these K-PAK products because they smooth and hydrate the hair, leaving it healthy with a lot of added shine.

    When I was younger, I lived in Texas and was able to spend a lot of time outside. One of my favorite things to do was garden with my grandparents!
