My Story


I've Been There, Myself

Leaving behind my 9-5 office job to embark on a career in the world of hair and beauty wasn't without its challenges. I vividly remember the early struggles – working hard to win clients, striving to stand out in a sea of talented professionals, and figuring out how to charge what my creations were truly worth.

But amidst these challenges, my ambitions soared. I dreamed of seeing more of the world, of living a life without limits. And it was this burning desire for more that drove me to take a leap of faith and try something entirely new.

Drawing from my invaluable experiences working with clients over the last 20 years, I knew I had a wealth of knowledge and creativity to offer the world, and this was my chance to make my mark.

With unwavering determination, I crafted this online academy and I promoted it to my social media platform. The response was nothing short of astounding! Not only did my network of stylists and clients give me great feedback, but it was a defining moment that signaled I was onto something truly special.

Today, as I stand in the present, I've conducted dozens of live workshops, breathed life into countless careers and watched my business flourish – all while staying true to my passion and beliefs.

And it's this journey of relentless perseverance, unbridled creativity, and a fearless willingness to be myself that led me to invent the groundbreaking Sidepiece Wig – a product that has taken the hairstyling world by storm.

Now, I'm excited to share my wealth of knowledge and experiences with up-and-coming hairstylists, just like you, who are eager to enhance their careers. This is why I've created this academy, because I want to help you build a thriving business that lays the foundation for the life you want to live.

So, let's embark on this journey together, because your dreams and ambitions deserve to be as limitless as your creativity and dedication.
