Sam McKnight has been the leading world wide session stylist for editorial work for the past 40 years. His name is associated with magazines such as Vogue and Bazaar. In 2015 I was chosen to understudy in the world of Editorial/Fashion with Sam McKnight in the International Master: Hair Program. This led to working with peers from the program in Los Angeles Fashion Week and Malta Fashion Week last spring 2016.
I specialize in hair and make-up for on-site services for fashion, branding, commercials/film and bridal. I travel often, working with commercial clients, most recent work was for Continental Tires for the new Harley Davidson rubber meets pavement.
I find the basis of my success is by remaining on the leading edge of trends, new products, techniques and products. In the fall of 2016 I attended the intensive conference by Behind The Chair where I participated with the top platform artists in the industry.
Bold, sensitive, big heart
Raised in Chicago, I moved west several years ago with the intention to expand my heart.
And Yes, my heart feels bright and clear! I laugh a lot, adore big families, and make myself right at home where there is kindness, laughter, and giant love.
I am obsessed with the every expanding international editorial fashion world. Sipping on a strong cup of joe I can be immersed in the latest art trends for hours. I enjoy the big city life as much as I love my piece of heaven in Sedona. I have an insatiable curiosity that calls me for world travel, joining projects, and creating teams with fellow artists and creatives. This is my play.
I'm an advocate of soft beauty and bold integrity, and feel strongly about the empowerment of women. My craft gives me the opportunity to connect a woman's inner beauty with her self expression. Wholeheartedness is the courage to be vulnerable, connect with others, and be authentic with our highest truths. This connection is what drives me.
To know me is to love me.
