The Full Story
I started out in beauty school in 2005 at David Pressley School of Cosmetology, where I actually received training from the school's namesake himself David Pressley. He was 100 years old at that time, and his life experiences became stories he told us.
I worked with a Paul Mitchell National Color Educator at my first job, I was her assistant. Mo taught me everything I know about haircutting, I also got the opportunity to travel all over Metro Detroit with her, assisting her as she taught classes, primarily on hair color. Once I got pregnant with my son, in 2007, I had to start taking a break from doing hair. in 2008 I returned and worked at a primary haircut place, I worked there for about 9 months, learned speed cutting, and met a lot of people. Then I went to my last salon before, we opened Bell Amore Salon. At that last spot, I met some people who would work by my side for upwards of ten years, people who would help me through my daughter's premature birth and the challenges that came with that. I learned so much from all of them. Now today, I run a BA salon with the help of an entire team of powerful women. Fast forward to 2022 - relocating BA to Shelby and doubling in size.
