I was born and raised in Chico. I graduated from Cosmetology School in 2007. I am a mom of two wild and adventurous boys and a baby girl. They keep my husband and I on our toes, but they are our world! We enjoy camping, swimming, hiking, and snow skiing. I look forward to meeting your family.

I’m a proud wife and mother of two amazing little boys that are my world! I grew up in Maui, HI., but have been in Chico since 2010. I took Early Childhood Development courses then shortly after, I started Cosmetology school. I’ve always loved doing hair and enjoy being around and working with children.

I’m a high school student graduating next year. I love to play with my own hair, I’ve dyed and cut it since middle school. I love being around kids and interacting with them. In my free time, I love photography and alpine skiing, and one day hope to travel and do just that.

I am a mom to 3 kids and a foster mom too. I love kids and animals. I’m originally from the Bay Area but have lived in Chico since 2008. When I found out Cool Kidz Cuts had closed I just had to reopen it for our community. Since then I relocated and renamed the salon to Taming Tangles!
