A day I thought would never come has come! As I approach my 5 year anniversary of being an independent stylist I have decided that as of June 1, I will be closing my books.
What does this mean? Opportunities will be rare for any person that has not already pre booked.
Over the next three months opportunities for you to book any opening with me online or to request a weekend will still be available.
I highly recommend at the end of your appointment, you pre book your follow ups and enjoy the perks of doing so!
This moment is a preface to greater things that are on the horizon. I am very thankful to every person that chooses to book your hair appointments with me. Without your support this business cannot and will not exist, thank you!
Here are the opportunities available now thru June 1
To book:


Happy week beginnings 🫶
Opportunities for color this month, haircuts as well! You can find additional haircut opportunities following the link below:


The soil has been cleansed, the roots are being nurtured.
I am blooming.

This is the first part of a self portrait series I am working on in celebration of 40 years around the sun.

The magic of being in the industry for 20 years and always wanting to learn is that I have learned a lot from a lot of different people. This year the focus is creating, collaborating and nurturing.
Thank you to those of everyone who have been a client for 20 years, and to those who are new. It's a roller coaster ride through and will always be.

I just want to take a moment this afternoon and say thank you to all of my clients, workshop attendees and followers.
Thank you for following my social media, supporting me as your stylist and reserving your appointments to change/maintain your look. Thank you for supporting Nirvana Loft, via a haircut, haircolor, workshop, or crystal, any purchase keeps the business open.
Thank you for referring a friend, or person that compliments your haircut or color.
For too long I thought that I could never leave a guaranteed salary, corporate sponsored job, and make it as a stylist, business owner and artist.
I am in the process of putting my passion for hair art before the need for “capital success” that Ive struggled with since 2020. The desire for "more" stifled my creativity.
I never thought that i could have been so wrong, to think that I was a person who could manage more business, marketing, and strategic planning than I already have to. Since i have owned my business on main street, I have never focused on paying myself a living wage, i have solely focused on trying to create a thriving retail business to establish passive income, and increase my living wages.
Unfortunately, I am not capable nor willing to sacrifice more time and life to such things.
I am not a hustler or sales person, I’m an artist, so the time is here for me to do love what I do, I get to be creative everyday. Whether it is creating the portfolio of art on social media, hosting workshops, giving great haircuts and color (NATURAL And VIBRANT) or just plain being a person that you're willing to invest in the same way you do with any hobby, self care or Starbucks coffee.
It's the slowest it's ever been for me, fortunately, i will always make do. This season, I am not letting the melancholy of slow season get to me. Instead, I am trying to put the 20+ years of hair education and experience to work, self portraits because it's something to do.
Thank you again, for just helping existence be a possibility.
