What I'm known for: 

Freehand hair painting (Balayage), vivid color melting, extensions, men's cuts and head-turning wedding styles



Artistic and creative with an eye for perfection. I’ve always been a very artistic visionary, and viewed things as if I could better them in some way, always wondering how I could paint them up or add more flare. I have an intense interest in color and hair painting, mostly free hand balayage and color-melting. Nothing satisfies my perfectionist side like completing the perfect balayage or color-melt without a single line showing. I also love hair sculpting, fading and updo’s, particularly wedding hair. My newest venture is costume makeup artistry.

At the age of 19, I joined the United States Marine Corps and spent twelve years serving on Active Duty all around the country. Although I loved the Corps, art and creativity were constantly missing from my life, as well as my love for Central Oregon.

I was born and raised a Bend, Oregon native, growing up doing all of the outdoorsy things one could think of to do around Bend. My grandparents, Jack and Virginia Meissner instilled a love of the outdoors that started with my learning to cross country ski at 18 months of age. In my off time, I enjoy skiing, snowboarding, stand- up paddle boarding, hiking, camping, and of course enjoying an amazing meal and craft beer at one of the top notch eateries the area has to offer.

I feel so lucky to live in my hometown and have my amazing son Maddox, and my little frenchie Jaxson, by my side every day. They truly make my life complete.
