Being born the creative type, I knew that when I grew up, I would have a career that allowed me to use my imagination in order to put my talents to good use. I found that I loved doing hair shortly after graduating high school by experimenting on myself and willing friends. No doubt there were plenty of failed experiments, but what was interesting is how excited it got me, and how I seemed to take to it like a fish to water! With the beauty industry looking like the perfect fit for me, I enrolled in Palomar Institute of Cosmetology in San Marcos soon thereafter. Upon graduating, I assisted in two of the top salons in the area, and through them, have gained a lot of skill, experience and respect for the industry.
After 10 years of doing it "their" way, I realized that I was also interested in the business side of the industry, and decided to go it alone. In 2013, I made the leap and decided to open MOD Hair Salon Carlsbad. The business grew and grew and after 5 years I had to say goodbye to my beach salon and moved inland to booming Vista! My family relocated to Vista in 1997 so it’s really cool to be a part of the revitalization of downtown and see new life breathed into the city. MOD 2.0 opened in Downtown Vista on September 3, 2018 and is continuing to grow! I am adding new stylists to the family and will soon be looking to add a massage therapist and esthetician. My intent at MOD Hair Salon is to create a salon environment that showcases our passion for the industry and strives to be exciting, cutting edge, and forever evolving; but mostly where clients come to take a break, relax and leave feeling beautiful inside and out. I look forward to making magic with you!
Yours in style,
