MY STORY

Master Colorist • Certified Hand Tied Extension Specialist

Hi! I'm Emily, and I'm a Master Colorist and Extension artist in Cary, North Carolina.

I was born and raised in Eastern, NC and Greenville, NC is where I call home. I'm a mom of three, Julian (6) and Kayne (5), and Indie (a baby!) I began my time in the salon at the young age of 10 when my sister, Jenn, began her career as a stylist. I fell in love with everything about the industry. I loved the salon environment, the vibrance and the upbeat music. Everything smelled amazing and you could just feel the confidence radiating from everyone in the building. I knew then that this was my calling. 

At 16, I went on to get my GED, I couldn't wait to go to hair school and I wasn't going to! I graduated from Mitchell's Academy in Raleigh in 2009. I went on to further my education with major salon brands like Redken, Paul Mitchell, Farouk Systems, and more.

I fell in love with color, and went on to specialize particularly in blonding services such as highlights, babylights and balayage. Blondes are still a HUGE passion of mine, but I also specialize in other services such as grey coverage, bob haircuts, and blowouts! 

This year, I decided I wanted to expand my horizons into the world of hair extensions. Throughout 2018 I have immersed myself in education surrounding hair loss solutions such as tape in extensions, I-tip and even flew to Houston, TX to learn everything about Hand Tied Extensions. I am now offering my specialized brand, Maven Hand Tied Extensions in the salon! 

There is much to be said about my love for this industry. I am dedicated whole-heartedly to giving my clients a wonderful, friendly, and sensory experience in the salon. After offering a glass of wine or a hot coffee, I listen to their wants, needs, lifestyle and most importantly what they don't want. You'll get the best blowout ever and maybe top it off with some tousled waves!

 It's not only about how they look when they leave the salon, but how they feel. I can guarantee you will leave my chair with confidence and a warmed heart!
