HALEY

HALEY

HAIR STYLIST & EXTENSION SPECIALIST

Originally I was in school for business and I just couldn’t imagine myself sitting at a desk for the majority of my life. I had always been creative & social, on a whim I signed up for hair school. 

I am absolutely obsessed with the nano hair extensions! Not only is it satisfying to do, I absolutely love wearing them. They’re so comfortable and low maintenance. They’re so undetectable it’s insane!

Something random about me is everything. Even I don’t know what’s gonna come out of my mouth next.

I love that I get to build up women’s confidence and be the best part of their day!

Plus I’m pretty fucking good 😉
