Taylor graduated from Minnesota School of Cosmetology in 2017, and joined our team later that year. She comes from a family of artists, and gets to practice her passion when she’s behind the chair!


Taylor is enthusiastic about Aveda products, and one of her favorite is Control Paste! She likes its versatility to tame fly-aways, or add texture to “grunge” up a look! Similar to her love for Aveda product versatility; Taylor is a versatile stylist and gets excited about services that bring out her guests natural beauty, but still enjoys working with trend and vibrant colors. On the weekends you’ll catch Taylor listening to Rock N’ Roll, playing video games, or hanging out with family. Interested in a trendy look? Is Rock N’ Roll your style? Taylor is your girl.
