Welcome to my online portfolio. What you are about to see is the result of years of hard work, coffee, long nights, and very little sleep. With my love for art and my passion for the latest trends, I knew fashion was my calling from a young age. I’m proud to represent fashionable products that are fresh, original, and timeless. Check out my latest collection below.
"Everything has beauty in it, but not everyone sees it"
I’m so thankful I was able to find a profession that connects two of my lifelong passions: fashion and beauty. My style is rooted in a deep, passionate, and lifelong commitment to fashionable comfort and luxury. In 2008, I decided to turn my passion into a reality by joining the hair industry as a professional. I knew that I was developing an addiction to share my creativity with people. Whether someone wanted a total makeover or just a simple touch up, I always want to talk about any options to help them out with their everyday styling habits. Everybody is so beautiful inside and out, but sometimes people need the guidance to show them where their strongest beauty areas are. Growing up, I was never the colloid in school and always liked to be creative with the way I did my hair, the way I dressed, or even the way I cooked and ate. My peers loved to put ketchup with their egg sandwiches, while I like to put jelly. It made sense... for me. Life is interesting in so many ways and is not made to only follow the rules. Stepping outside the box and creating your own path, is what will enhance your inner beauty.
SOME AMAZING PEOPLE
ISuch a wonderful experience for my first time at the incredibly chic Elie Tanous Salon. Located directly inside Riverside Mall, Elie Tanous' salon is surrounded by other fabulous stores which compliment this high end salon and makes you feel like stopping in for a blow out after a day of incredible shopping. I was so impressed by how Elie has his own products including brushes, towels, hair extensions, and more! All top quality mind you. All stylists are so welcoming including Allison whom I had the pleasure of getting to know as she trimmed and blew out my hair. She gave me some wonderful tips on how to keep my hair healthy and she even styled my hair in her own way because I trusted her taste. Plus, prices are surprisingly very affordable so you get the luxury experience at a great price! My hair looks great, I feel great, and I can't wait to come back and begin purchasing the Elie Tanous hair product line and Oribe line to bring home!
Elie is absolutely by far the best hairstylist I have met. I am a 65 year old woman and he never fails to make me look fabulous. I travel 1 1/2 hours for him to do my hair and would not think of going to any other person.
I am thrilled with the owner Elie's work. Went in this morning to change up my look from a "lob" to a very short cut, and I found him not only incredibly skilled and talented as a hair stylist, but also simply a delightful, positive person. He understood right away that I wanted a cut that didn't require lot of tools or time, and I feel that I really benefited from his vast experience working with very straight, fine hair like mine. He knew exactly how my hair would behave and cut it accordingly, because he likes to work with what you've got and embrace the positives--which I believe to be a terrific quality (and a rare one among the hair stylists I have been to in the past). When my hair was longer, I went to Lyssandra who also works at Elie, and she does an amazing job with the bob and the lob. I highly recommend both of them!
