OWNER / master STYLIST
Having worked in the Industry for 12 years, I’ve always known I wanted to be a Hairstylist. In college, where I majored in Drama, I spent the next several years doing hair and makeup for theatre, film and photography. After deciding to finally pursue my true calling, I enrolled at the prestigious Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where I did Aesthetics and Cosmetology.
I was fortunate to be asked to participate in Aveda’s Master Jam, an event that showcases the talent ofAveda trained hair and makeup artist from around the world. There I was introduced to Anna Marie Rizzieri, top makeup artist for Aveda. This led me to New Jersey, where I worked with the Rizzieri family,founders of the Rizzieri Aveda School and Salon of the Year 2006.
After years of working in the north east, we decided to leave the cold for a much calmer life. That decision brought us - my husband Randy and our son Aidan – to Greenville, SC, which is now our permanent home. I’ve been fortunate to have worked with some of the top brands in the Industry: Aveda, Redken, Davines, Aquage, L’Oréal and Goldwell, just to name a few. I have traveled to Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City and Boston to train with the best.
I take pride in my craft. I believe in providing not only a great experience, but the ability for each guest to recreate their look at home. Customer service and satisfaction are the benchmarks of Mint Salon.
The need to support our community as a whole is a strong value we strive to uphold. We support several local charities including the Special Olympics, Mauldin Miracle league and Izzie’s Pond just to name a few.
