For most of my life, I have believed in the power of creation. Creating anything that gives you pure joy. I found that joy when I stepped foot into Douglas J Aveda back in 2010. My new found passion formed along with a passion for healthy hair and healthy body products. Once I graduated with a license in cosmetology, I perfected my skills in hair design and natural nail services. Every day, I further my education through online webinars and tutorials and in the past I have learned from the greats Yosh Toya, Gina Sheehy, Myriah Shawen, Simon Miller, Amadeo DeRango, Paul McIvor, Nick Arrojo, and Sonna Brado. I am extremely meticulous when it comes to what I do and because of this I specialize in men's cuts and short women's cuts. Also, because I've battled the stress of having curly uncontrollable hair I have learned and observed amazing techniques to calm and control curls as well as how to cut them to create a softer, more manageable style. For those people who want to loosen, or completely smooth their curl, I specialize in Pure Brazilian smoothing system. From the moment I started, I have had a knack for color formulation and color application, specializing in color corrections and balayage/sombre techniques to create better, more natural looking color. Tricia also offers facial waxing and she is certified in Easyhair Pro Tape In Extensions. Last, but not least, I perform bridal styles to fulfill a true art form not many can do. In the nail department, I perform natural nail services along with gel polish manicures. I am extremely proud to say I make a few of my products that only contain natural ingredients. These ingredients are organic and highly nutritious for our skin. I am so happy to be able to continue on being creative as an adult and to inspire others to love what they do. I believe that if you love what you do, success will easily follow.

The first time I saw Patricia, I quickly noticed her confidence in her technique. This confidence completely put me at ease as she explained her rationale for everything she did during the appointment. The fact that she could put her knowledge into simple, relatable terms for me was very impressive. As I started to get to know her, I began to love her not only as my stylist but as a person. Patricia is so gentle and kind in her attitude that now I get excited not just for getting my hair done but also just to see her and how's she doing. She is so talented and lovely!
I have been going to Patricia for about 5 years now. I have always been pleased with all of the services that she provides. I have had my haircut in different styles, and have been highly satisfied with each style. I have her give me Pure Brazilian treatments about every 3 months, following a full color service. When I walk out, I feel refreshed and relaxed, a whole new me!
