Modern Hair Boutique


I knew I wanted to pursue a career in hair design at an early age. In high school I was nominated the "Most Creative Hairstyles" award in the senior yearbook. I was always sitting in the hallways styling student body hair. I graduated from Pivot Point International Beauty School in 2000 and immediately got hired to apprentice under the most reputable colorist in Chicagoland.  Gina King, my mentor, was originally trained by Vidal Sassoon (a pioneer in the industry). After completing 3 years of color training. I partnered with Gina to open "Salon Mor", a top rated Goldcoast salon. Within that decade, I styled for publications, commercials, fashion shows and colored celebrity clientele.  I pride myself on achieving desired looks while preserving the integrity of the hair. I love my clients and my craft and feel blessed to have both in my life -
