I'm a stylist who has been working in the industry since 2014! I am very passionate about what I can do for people's hair. My goal is to constantly adjust and change and continue to improve day by day, year by year.

I see hair transformations as a journey, always needing edits to fit your life changes and goals. I feel the best place to improve is in a relaxing and friendly environment. In a place, you feel heard and understood.

I am constantly looking at ways to improve my guest experience and give my clients the most out of their service. One way is through energy healing and meditation tools that can be included in a service. I know the time you choose to spend with me is very valuable, and I don't take being a part of your self-care ritual for granted!

All my services are genderless and gratuity-free, which means no surprise at the checkout when paying.
If you are looking for someone who shares your values in sustainability and can help take your self-care and self-expression through low-maintenance hair to the next level, I'd love to chat.

From shags and mullets to one-lengths and long layers, she is dedicated to bringing out the best in every individual's hair.

Providing an exceptional experience is a core value in her work.

She's committed to staying up-to-date with the latest techniques and trends in the industry, as ongoing education is a priority for her.

Outside of being a hair stylist, Courtney enjoys spending time with her dog, Chato, along with reading and expanding her knowledge on tarot and astrology.
