I am a Certified Trichologist thru the International Association of Trichology (IAT), a member of World Trichology Society (WTS), and a Certified Master Organic Colorist. My interest in healthy hair and lifestyle has led me to trichology (please see my trichology page for a complete description). I have a small Trichology clinic with hair services in the San Francisco Bay Area. I help people achieve healthy scalp and fuller thicker hair using a natural homeopathic approach in a quiet comfortable space.  I treat all kinds of scalp problems and hair issues; hair loss, psoriasis, alopecia, scalp scaling, seborrheic dermatitis, and more.

I also offer hair services using eco-friendly, natural, and organic products. I am a past owner of two award-winning salons, Renaissance House of Beauty and Harlequin Hair Designs. As an established Senior Stylist with over 34 years experience, I stay very busy and am rarely caught sitting down. I am a no-nonsense hairdresser. I spend time consulting with my clients to be sure we are on the same page. I tell them if I believe the style or color will look good or not before we do anything. I work hard at respecting my clients’ time and start their appointments on time if not early. I am very detailed oriented and meticulous. I have very high standards for my own work. I enjoy doing all kinds of hair; specializing in long hair, advanced hair cutting, organic coloring and hair extensions.

I use products that are less damaging to the hair, products that truly work and give professional results. When ever possible these products have fewer chemicals, no ammonia, no parabens, sodium laurel sulfates, sodium chloride or other harsh ingredients. I believe in the products I use and prescribe to my clients.
