Hey there, my name is Haley!
I was born and raised in Greenville, North Carolina and moved to the Milton area my junior year of high school when my dad was stationed at Whiting Field. I’ve always had a passion for the artistic side of things, whether it be writing, painting, music, pretty much anything where I could let my creativity roam! I am a huge animal lover and have worked with my mom with both dog and equine rescue over the years! My two girls are my pittie mix Moonpie, and my schnauzer mix, ole lady Peanut, who has been with me half my life. I also pet sit six of the best pitties!
Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a concert addict, I try to go to as many as I can, it brings me a great deal of joy and I have made some of my best friends through going to shows. It’s so awesome when I run into my clients on occasion and gives us more to talk about at our next appointment! If I’m not at a concert in my free time I enjoy going to the beach and reading a good book, catching up on my favorite crime series or exploring videos, planning my next adventure, or just relaxing with my mom and dogs.
For most of my life I wanted to be a veterinarian and was on track to do so, but as time went on and I went through the loss of so many of my own, I realized it was probably not a career for me. For a while I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to do something that involved some sort of creative process. In 2015 I was invited to audition for Barbizon Modeling and Acting schools and was accepted! We went over topics that involved color theory, what tones look best on what skin tones, etc. It was during that time that I really started thinking about careers behind the scenes. Which led to me going to cosmetology school. During my classes I was starting to feel more confidence in myself, and over the years have really worked on self-love and self-acceptance. I enjoy knowing that I get to help build the confidence of whoever is in my chair and make them feel beautiful. I try to deter people from negative self- talk and encourage them to be more positive.
Over the years I’ve earned my certifications with Surface Pure Color and the Surface Awaken System! Color, Blended blondes, and vivids are my thing! Whether it is a subtle or a bold change I'm always open to try something new while also keeping the integrity of your hair in mind. While you’re in my chair I hope to make you feel relaxed and to help you achieve your hair goals in the healthiest way possible! I hope you leave your visit feeling encouraged and empowered.
