I have been licensed for 36 years. I have owned Sophie's Garden Salon for 18 years. My E-Mail: [email protected]
I have been married to Harlan for 35 years, and we have an awesome 23 year old daughter. We also live with 2 cats and, and they tell us what to do. We usually comply. Our cockatiel generally agrees with the cats. My boss is a Jewish carpenter.
I attended cosmetology school in Austin, Texas, in 1981. It was a true old school 'Beauty College'. I loved every minute of it, and learned the basics there. In 1985, I was blessed to have the opportunity to go to London, England to take classes at the Vidal Sassoon Academy. The skills I learned there gave me a quantum leap in knowledge of cutting hair. I have used what I learned there throughout my career.
In 1989, I was invited to work as an educator for the Framesi Color Company. I worked with them for about 2 years, and again the information that I learned while working for them has helped my career immensely.
In 2001, I was asked to teach perming classes for Aveda. I just taught a few of these, but it was again a great learning experience for me.
I am convinced that we stylists must continue our education constantly to stay in touch with what is going on, not only with hair, but also with the fashion industry.
I love what I do, and that is to take care of YOU.
