Hey there beautiful!!

I have a serious passion for all things hair. Whether you are looking for lived-in color, ultimate highlights, an edgy pixie cut, boho braid or upstyle and everything in between.

I have tons of experience in all!

I have been in this industry for over 25 years and have never felt I worked a day in my life.

I worked as a stylist behind the chair for 15 years before I decided to go out on my own and open a salon where I could use my passion to inspire other like-minded stylists.

I opened Purple Orchid Salon in 2013 knowing I could change my guest experience to something special. I make sure that all my guests' requests are heard, I work to paint, design and shape my guest's hair to reflect their true personality and lifestyle. I truly feel that a visit to my salon should feel like a luxurious treat, something to look forward to, so I make sure to give each guest that experience.

I work to make sure my guest's hair stays in good health. I will take every precaution to preserve the integrity of the hair and be forthcoming about what to do in order to keep the desired color, style and condition while providing recommendations for the correct treatments and at home care.

I have  worked on commercial shoots, fashion shows and have been published multiple times in industry publications and even won the Behind The Chair Raw Talent award in 2013. Since opening my salon I also became a Schwarzkopf Professional educator because teaching my team was simply not enough, I needed to spread hair color love everywhere.

Now, I split my time between being in the salon and traveling the country to educate. This inspires me so much, even as I teach, I learn so much more and I thoroughly enjoy bringing all that I've learned back to the salon and my guests.

I was born and raised in Dublin. Ireland and moved to New York in 1994 when I started my career in hair. I enjoy traveling, adventures big and small and fancy myself as a bit of a foodie(I do enjoy a good libation too!) and I love to dance, going to concerts, getting sucked into a good book and listening to podcasts or Clubhouse.

Something not many people know about me is I find balance in life through meditation, dancing in my kitchen and I also love my Peloton!

I have a gorgeous hubby, 3 amazing kiddos and 2 fur babies that also keep me on my toes. 

I am truly blessed and have a zest for life. I look forward to passing good vibes on to you.

 

I can't wait to meet you and your fabulous hair!
