Studio She






One of the most inspiring stories in my journey is the story of how and why I opened Studio She & Studio She Academy.

Back when I was living in Vancouver, Canada, I found solace in our local braiding gallery. Despite being the only "Caucasian" with braids, I was addicted to the added length and volume they gave my fine hair.

I didn't care about fitting in, all I wanted was to feel happy with my hair.

My love for extensions grew so much that I decided to start my own business called Braidens.

I would spend hours braiding hair, sometimes up to 13 hours a day, and I loved every second of it. Not only was I making money, but I was also working for myself.

In my twenties, I would travel to Calgary, Alberta to visit a renowned hair extension artist who introduced me to sew-ins and keratin bonds. Instantly, my confidence skyrocketed, and I felt like a completely new person.

(I don't miss those braids because I have a large head lol)
When I moved to the United States, I only knew one person. Despite having just completed Broadcasting school, I followed my heart and took a leap of faith for love.

Little did I know that upon arriving, I would struggle to find someone who could properly maintain my hair extensions without causing damage. This unfortunate reality became the driving force behind opening Maryland's first hair extensions boutique salon.

Fast forward over 20 years, and I have not only completed over 15,000 sets of hair extensions (who's counting?), but I've also had the incredible opportunity to teach hundreds of others the art and business of hair extensions.

This new year, I am finally launching a passion project that I am beyond excited about. It will revolutionize the hair extensions industry and empower women who aspire to succeed in this field.
It's a true game changer.

Whether you're new to the world of hair extensions or have been in the hair extensions industry for a long time, if you share the same passion, I promise you there is always something new to learn and discover.


What you don’t know is that the secret ingredient to why Virtue Virtue Labs products actually work is because they extract human keratin from hair extensions which wrap and rope your ends so they stop breaking. 😎

🧜‍♀️Hair Extension Chronicles: Things I Wish I Knew! 🌟

✨ Discover the truth behind hair extensions and avoid the pitfalls! ✨

Before diving into the world of hair extensions, there are crucial things I wish I knew. Learn from my experience to make an informed decision.

1. Don't be fooled by appearances! Just because those extensions look amazing when curled doesn't guarantee they'll look as fabulous when straightened. Here’s the thing, going from short to long can almost always look perfect when the layers are being curled, but what about when they are straight?! Hmmmmm?! That is why, all our guests have their hair flat ironed before it’s styled. I like to go in and make sure the blend is perfect. And then yes, I’ll add beach waves at the end.

2. Pinterest can be a great source of inspiration, but not everything works for everyone. I always giggle at the candid music festival “set of hair extensions”. Usually they are too long but they sure look good under a big hat! LOL.

3. Long hair, don’t care?! Heck no! Long hair = MORE CARE. It's all about the proper TLC!

4. Did you know that hair extensions come in various methods and textures? Girl, for years I wore hair that didn’t match up properly. YUP! I’ve been there and I’ve done that. Say goodbye to limitations and explore the versatility that suits your unique style.

Don't let hair extension surprises ruin your journey! Find a salon that specialises in more than one method! Find an artist that wears extensions and understands all your concerns.
Stay informed and embrace the beauty of extensions with confidence. ✨

Feeling little “light”?! We might just have the solution to your volume-issues. And it will take less than two hours!

🌟 Top 5 Reasons Why Hair Extensions Can Be Damaging 🌟

1️⃣ DIY Disasters: Trust me, if I struggle with doing my own hair, it's best to leave it to the professionals. Trying to install extensions yourself can lead to a whole lot of trouble and damage. Let the experts work their magic!

2️⃣ Friends and YouTube: We all love a good self-taught moment, but when it comes to hair extensions, it's a different story. Asking a friend to help you based on a YouTube tutorial might seem tempting, but it can actually cause tension and traction alopecia. Let's avoid those bald spots, shall we?

3️⃣ Social Media Deception: Don't believe everything you see on social media, especially when it comes to hair extensions. Many self-proclaimed "masters" and "certified" artists may not actually have the skills they claim. Always ask for real photos and do your research before trusting someone with your precious hair.

4️⃣ Cheap Isn't Always Cheerful: We all love a good deal, but when it comes to hair extensions, quality matters. Cheap extensions often skip important production steps and may not be ethically sourced. Make sure you know where your hair is coming from and support businesses that prioritize ethical sourcing.

5️⃣ Neglecting Aftercare: Taking care of your extensions is just as important as getting them installed. Following the aftercare instructions and advice from a professional is crucial. From using the right products to avoiding bedtime with wet hair, these small steps can make a big difference in maintaining healthy, natural-looking hair extensions.

Oh and P.S. , find a salon that will turn new clients away. Yes, that means that they don’t just say yes to all and anyone. Not everyone is a candidate for extensions.

✨ Let's talk keratin extensions and discover why they're a game-changer! (And also my OG favourite method).

First things first, let's talk about maintenance. One of the best things about keratin extensions is that they are easy and low to no maintenance! Say goodbye to spending hours on your hair every morning. With keratin extensions, you can wake up with flawless locks and spend more time doing the things you love! PLUS you you are not required to come every 6-8 weeks for maintenance (like other methods).

🎨 Now, let's talk about the endless possibility working with other 98 colors! With keratinn extensions, you have the power to create an unlimited blend of colors. Say goodbye to flat and one-dimensional hair. With keratin extensions, adding dimension is a breeze! You can achieve stunning three-dimensional color with ease.💫

Worried about damaging your natural hair? Fear not! Keratin extensions are non-damaging when applied and cared for properly. That means you can enjoy the length and volume you desire without compromising the health of your locks. Plus, if you take good care of them, they can last up to 5 months! Talk about a long-lasting hair transformation! 💇‍♀️✨

And let's talk free-flowing hair! Keratin extensions are all about enhancing your natural beauty and embracing your unique texture. Each individual strand is customized to match your hair's unique texture, giving you that effortless and free-flowing look.

Whether you call them Ktips, fusion extensions, or bonded extensions, they are the most popular method for a reason. Easy maintenance, unlimited colors, non-damaging, and free-flowing strands - what more could you ask for?

We are hosting a model call for Ktip extensions. To learn more comment below.

1. When you see someone wearing straight hair extensions but their hair is naturally wavy 👀!

2. When you see someone with bad clip in hair extensions 😅.

3. When you see your client and she looks amazing 😻.

4. When a new client trusts you 💗.

But seriously though who loves Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce? I DO!

Let’s talk about meme number 1. Those that wear straight hair extensions when they have wavy hair ❌.

Missing this one “texture step” won’t sustain a full day of wear without your own hair starting to frizz at the hair line and your extensions will be bone straight. This is a tell take sign that you’re wearing hair extensions.

Texture matching is just as important as color matching.

This fall opens our doors to a limited amount of students. If you’re licensed and looking to fast track your career - let’s talk.


Didn’t I just see you?! 😂
(And who doesn’t love the 2 mile CVS receipt with coupons!) 🕺

Here’s the thing - I’m not hating on your CVS purchase. I’m just saying that if you spent thousands of dollars on your hair … why are you using $5 shampoo?!

The usual response 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼
💗 it smells good.
💗my husband used all mine
💗my daughter loves it and stole it out of my shower.
💗it was easy
💗WTF. It’s no big deal. It’s just shampoo. How bad can it be?!
💗I had a coupon burning a hole in my wallet 😂

The bottom line is that you don’t want silicone based products.

🤓Your hair and your hair extensions deserve to “breath” and not be weighed down by sulfates and silicone.

🤓Every time we wash our hair - we are battling basic minerals that are in our water. Just those little rascals cause our hair to be weighed down and even show more of a brassy tone.

Best products HANDS DOWN is . The science 🧬 is there. PLUS this is an American based company that’s female owned and operated.

📸 Smile, it's time for a fun and fabulous post! 💃✨ Today, let's talk about a topic that goes beyond makeup and filters - true beauty that radiates from within. 🌟✨

They say, "You're only as beautiful as you treat people", and I couldn't agree more! 💖 It's not just about the perfect selfie or flawless skin, but about how we treat others with kindness, love, and respect. 🤗❤️

Think about it - when you uplift someone's spirits with a genuine compliment, when you lend a helping hand to those in need, or when you spread positivity and encouragement, that's when your true beauty shines through! ✨💫

So, let's embrace our inner beauty and make it sparkle! 💎✨ Let's be the kind of person who brightens someone's day with a smile, who lifts others up with words of encouragement, and who spreads love and kindness wherever we go. 🌈💖

Remember, beauty isn't just about the external appearance, but about the beauty of your heart and soul. Let's show the world that true beauty lies in how we treat people! 🌺💕


Top 3 reason why we love Keratin Bonds💗

1.Dimensional Color: Keratin Bonds is their ability to use highs and lows to create dimensional looks, without coloring the natural hair.

2.Freedom to elongate and add free flowing hair: Keratin Bonds offer the ability to elongate your hair, giving you the hair you've always dreamed of.

3. Low-Maintenance: These extensions require little to no maintenance, and removal only happens every 3 to 4 months.
