Hi, I'm Cynthia, a New Orleans native, and my passion is to provide my clients with top quality hair services. I started my professional career as a stylist in 1999.

Having extensive experience with hair color, hair cutting and hair extensions, I pay meticulous attention to detail and address my clients' unique needs and implement it flawlessly, whether it is a  multidimensional blonde, a bold red, a luxuriously rich brunette, or a natural balayage.

My most important goal is to maintain the integrity of my clients' hair, as I truly believe that a healthy head of hair always looks spectacular. Having curly hair myself, I enjoy working with curly hair and I am also experienced in different hair color techniques such as balayage, ombre, color correction and highlights. 

As a hair extension specialist, I am certified in and currently offer Great Lengths, Hotheads and Halo Couture hair extensions.I am committed to stay up-to-date on current hair trends and advance my education by attending trade shows and classes taught by some of the top industry professionals.

My accomplishments include being recognized by the "Washingtonian Magazine Great Hair 2012" as best colorist for redheads, I was a semi finalist in "Great Lengths Challenge 2013", and I was recognized in the DC Luxury Magazine for Best in Brunettes of 2015.
