Originally from Southern California, I have now lived in the Bay since 2015. My passion for hair started at a very young age. In 2019, I attended College of San Mateo and got my certificate in Cosmetology and then became licensed in California in 2020. I started my journey here at Y Salon & Spa in August 2022. I am happy to share that I specialize in women’s cuts, color, keratin treatments, & event styling.
