Hair Designer, Esthetician, Salon Owner
I am highly trained in every aspect of cosmetology the science of the Hair, Skin and Nails. However, at this point my career, my major focus has been on the science of hair, make-up application and hair removal upon the face only.
My education and training occurred at American School of Beauty, Salvador's College of Cosmetology and finally La James School of Beauty in Des Moines, Iowa. I graduated with a completed thirty-two hundred hours of education. My continuing education over the past twenty-five years has consisted of specialty classes for learning the techniques of cutting hair with implements such as shears, razor and clippers. Additionally, I have taken several specialty classes throughout the nation which helped to advance and refine my skills in such areas as color correction, highlighting, color placement, esthetics, wigs, extensions, hair loss treatment, up-do's and multiple product-based training. Within my twenty-five years of experience, I have literally attended hundreds of classes.
The past four years I have been volunteering at Ronald McDonald House and Children's Hospital. At Ronald McDonald House I helped design their personal salon and found donors whose contributions helped to furnish and supply the entire salon. I created a volunteer program which now has nine to eleven stylists who provide hair services for the family members who are staying at the Ronald McDonald House San Diego while their child is across the street at the Children's Hospital.
For the past three years, in conjunction with five other San Diego based salons, I have organized an annual Cut-A-Thon benefit to help fund the Ronald McDonald House San Diego and its salon.
Being a Hair Designer is a fun job and I believe that the North Park Hair Salon experience should be relaxing, worry-free and attitude-free.
