As our mammas always say: beautiful is as beautiful does.
At Bravados Hair and Sugaring Studio, we strive to help you look and feel beautiful on the outside while also feeling confident and empowered within. We offer a variety of services such as haircuts, styling, colouring, sugaring, manicures, pedicures and more to help you find your best self. We know that everyone has their own unique style and beauty preference. Our promise to you is an unforgettable experience that leaves you feeling priceless.
Here at Bravados, you are our guest. As the owner, I believe you've honored us by answering our invitation to live your best life.
With 25 years of experience, I have a passion for the beauty industry, am a life-long learner and am always seeking new ways to grow our staff by expanding their skills. I specialize in body sugaring as a more skin-friendly version of hair removal and also offer hair, skin & nails.
At Bravados, we believe in community and participate by both donation and services in various capacities. Some of our favorites are Wine Down with Rotary, Neches River Festival, Spice of the Season (Beaumont Chamber of Commerce), Blue Santa for Orange, Back to School packages for Orangeville teachers and the Cattle Baron’s Ball. We're also regulars at the Rosemary House, making sure the residents look & feel fabulous.
My flair for artistic endeavors include crocheting, DIY projects, painting and gardening. That's why helping you express yourself through your personal style - hair, makeup or nails - is why I really love what I do. My favorite phrase is 'color and more color!'.
Being able to help our guests accentuate their inner self is the why behind what I do. From a great haircut & style - men and women alike - to perms and roller sets, I also provide nail services and specialize in acrylics and nail art.
The beauty industry has had my heart as long as I can remember. Creating confidence with my guests feels fantastic and the positive feedback simply reinforces that I've made the right career choice for me.
Certified in sugaring, spray tanning and lash extensions, one of my favorite services is facials. On a personal note, my family - I'm married, with two small children - is an outdoorsy bunch, spending time fishing and horsing around. Me time, when I get it, is exercise. I know first hand taking care of the skin is special.
I've known since I was a child that this was my calling. The dolls and the dogs got hair cuts! Helping people feel good about themselves with a cut and a color is what I live for and has been my passion since I began working as a stylist in 1988.
Just because you were born with it, doesn't mean you're stuck with it. Being creative and helping our guests find what suits them best...especially if they've been in a rut makes my day.
High lights, low lights, cuts, colors and perms along with manicures and pedicures are how I spend my days. Unless I'm with my husband and two rescue dogs Packer & Lola. I love to be in the gym and boost my creativity with drawing and painting.
With a passion for people and making them feel good, I'm like many of my colleagues in the beauty industry...I started young. My long-time clients feel like family.
When I'm not with that family, I'm at home with my husband and our Yorkie baking & decorating or spending time with my daughter, five grandchildren and four great grandchildren.
When my sister Kerri opened Bravados, I jumped at the opportunity to use my administrative & organizational skills to help keep things at Bravados running smoothly. With a previous history as an early childhood educator, with a focus in special education, it was a smooth switch to meet our guests, make sure they're having their needs met & get them comfortably set up for their time with us.
A smile says a lot about you and I love the positive feedback from our guests who love their teeth, one of the best parts of my day as a Certified Teeth Whitening Specialist.
With a husband, two children, two grandchildren and three dogs, I’m as busy in my off-hours as I am at the studio. That doesn't keep me from finding the time but I for reading, crocheting and traveling.
