It's hard to believe another year is almost to an end!  I am THANK-FUL for an amazing 3 years and super excited to head into our 4th year and all that is in store :)  Whimsy Salon & Garden has quickly become a well known salon creating consistent, beautiful hair!  We have enjoyed supporting our local community here in Redondo Beach, CA and take pride in our reputation that has put us on the map as a local favorite!  THANK-FUL for our amazing clients, our top rated reviews and my amazing team of stylists that have helped make a dream, a reality!  

Happy thoughts

I just finished my Whimsy Newsletter for my salon and felt inspired to share some positive thoughts with you to gear up for the holiday season! *Enjoy*

"The best and most beautiful things the world cannot be seen or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller

"A friend is a gift you give yourself." - Robert Louis Stevenson

"Christmas is the season when you buy this year's gift with next year's money.  Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more.


To my Whimsy-full life fans...I am thankful for a great year and have recently been swept up and have been a bit FORGET-FUL of my blog!  I have some exciting things coming your way in 2015 so thanks for your patience :)

I wish you all the best this holiday season and look forward to blogging more in the New Year!

Happy Days, Happy Hair and always a big cheer to a life FULL of Whimsy!

redondo beach hair stylistOn Friday, July 18, 2014 I had the privilege of assisting Kevin Murphy and his team of global Master.Stylists on a photo shoot in LA.  In one day I met new friends from around the world from many different walks of life in the beauty industry...and we magically all share a common denominator.  Our love of Kevin.Murphy - the man himself, his incredible brand and what he has brought to our industry.  I am forever GREAT-FULL to educate for this line of Hair Care and for the constant growth, opportunities and inspiration we are able to give and receive.

Summer Hair Tip

Summer time is here....chlorine and salt water can take its toll on those lovely locks.  TIP: wet hair or run conditioner thru hair before ya take the plunge!  Chlorine and/or salt water will adhere to the "barrier" you have created.  When possible, rinse hair immediately after swimming.  
**Happy Summer Days***


Life is full of surprises and it never ceases to amaze how things can change day by day....usually when you least expect it!
This seemed to be a constant in my entertaining years.  As a Stylist and Salon Owner, those big changes aren't always the norm.  Last month an opportunity came out of no-where as I was contacted by a producer looking for a host salon to film locally for an episode on the Beauty Network.  It was less than a 24 hr. notice....a fun twist of an opportunity that I'm so glad I took!

Welcome to The Whimsy-full Life

Life is full of constant adventures, endless opportunities and wonderful surprises!  I am excited to share with you my many journeys as a Professional Dancer, Stunt Woman, Jewelry Designer, Hair Stylist, Hair Educator, Salon Owner and Mom! 
As one door seems to close, it never fails for another to open and somehow many of those "closed" doors never seemed to close all the way!  I do believe everything happens for a reason...and I hope you enjoy my stories that truly have made my life Whimsy - full :)
