Cut, color, style, straightening, keratin – Emily does it all! She has specialized training in hot heads extensions, color matching expert, and styling extensions – (not just putting the hair in). Her interest is in maintaining the integrity of your hair from the inside out. Emily says, “My passion for hair styling is not only on getting the look but keeping it by working with what you have or what I can add! I love working with long hair as well as precision short cuts. I love doing color… blondes to brunette and everything in between.
