When Angela decided to open a salon, she wanted to create a comfortable environment that was happy, easy-going and welcoming. She had already spent eight years looking for the perfect environment to share with her clients and in 1992 she found a turn-key salon in Sacramento (off Garfield & Auburn), that was green from the carpet to the window coverings, chairs, furniture, you name it...it was Green (Emerald Green). She decided to call it Emerald City. (It had nothing to do with the famed Wizard or Dorothy, we might add.) Little did she know that in 2005 her 2 children would join her in the industry and spend 10 wonderful years working with her.


As a young woman I never dreamed I would have this amazing career... I remember sitting at home with my 2 young children wondering if there was something I could do when I saw a commercial for a local Beauty School and I was forever changed!

Eventually I opened Emerald City Hair Studio in 1992 and, over the years, it has transformed from a lively rental salon, to a classy employee based family owned salon to its current incarnation as a micro-salon located inside Phoenix Salon Studios-Roseville ... all the while I have experienced everything in this industry from working behind the chair as a stylist, owning multiple salons, training stylists, teaching salon business, hair color, hair extensions, and hair replacement (hairpieces & wigs) at beauty schools and for professional hair color companies all over Northern California. And in 2011, after 4 years of practice and study, I received the coveted title of American Board Certified Haircolorist (ABCH).


      As a child I wanted to be a hairstylist--likely because I wanted to be like my mom. In hair school I quickly discovered I was talented in cutting and formulating hair color, so much so that I immediately began working backstage at hair shows, then eventually in classrooms and on-stage as an educator and hair artist traveling all over the country and internationally.

In my free time I dedicated myself to perfecting my craft at the famed Sassoon Academy, studying numerous cutting and coloring methodologies and studying under various highly sought after hair stylists. In 2011, I earned the coveted certification status as a American Board Certified Haircolorist (ABCH) along with my mom Angela.


My passion in life has always been to make people feel good and feel happy. From the time I was little, I have been inspired by so many women in the hair industry seeing them putting a smile on so many faces. I knew that was what I wanted to do. Since being in the industry, my creativity and the art for hair has grown into a passion for creating beautiful, healthy, manageable hair. I believe in keeping the integrity of the hair with still giving a person their dream hair.

Healthy hair is beautiful hair.
