Get to Know Me

My Journey

My professional hair journey began at the Aveda Institute in NYC. From there, I took on many roles in the beauty industry as an educator for Drybar, working in three of their top NYC locations. I also trained under several master stylists at Warren Tricomi, including Edward Tricomi himself. Today, I am the founder of You Look Stella, a community for hair enthusiast to get educated and learn all their is to know about hair.

As the master stylist of LRN, I keep myself motivated by always being open to new brands and education. I am constantly trying out new products and doing further research as my clients bring me new concerns as they go through their hair journey.

My Process

When it comes to haircuts, I tend to approach them with ease and get to know my client before moving forward. First, I like to start with a detailed consultation where we discuss what my client's thoughts are for themselves and what their end goal is.

 

I always ask open-ended questions to get to know your daily routine, career lifestyle, and general lifestyle. I need to see how you style your hair and how much effort you're willing to put into the look. Each haircut is personal to the client to ensure the results will last even once you leave my chair.

My Salon

Born and raised in New York, I love working for a local, women-owned business and being able to support other local artists with LRN Beauty. Being an independent salon, we are a small curated team of talented artists.

 

We all have our specialties, so you can feel you're getting top-quality services from real professionals. We are your one-stop-shop for just about anything you need, including hair services like cut and color to extensions, keratin, bridal, brow needs, and lashes.
