Over the years Serena has developed her skill set and technical acumen and is a master stylist. She is also a licensed NC cosmetology teacher.  Although she’s no longer in the classroom, she inserts teachable moments during each appointment with her clients.

Her cosmetology career began at the Aveda Institute Chapel Hill. There, she learned the fundamentals of cutting and styling multiple hair textures and the importance of overall well- being. Also during her career, she’s earned several hair certifications. She volunteers with a local beauty non-profit and has worked behind the scenes at Charlotte Fashion week.

Serena has been mixing colors since she was a kid. Her love for art became a career in graphic design. Now those skills fuel her passion behind the chair as a precision hair cutter and custom colorist. She has an affinity for textured hair and loves curls!  She is a DevaCurl stylist and a DevaCurl Coach.

Above all else, Serena is a great listener and is very professional. Book your appointment today!

Speak about your hair with kindness, it's an extension of you.

Serena is “The Curl Whisperer”! My hair always had a dry frizzy look to it, no matter what I did. After Serena worked her “magic” my curls transformed to a hydrated, soft, beautiful bunch of beauty. It’s all about the cut.

Such a great haircut experience, very relaxing. Serena knows what she is doing, and has been cutting hair for 11 years! She was so gentle with my hair, and I loved the results of my devacut. Will definitely be back for my next cut in the future.

Serena knows how to work with all different kinds of curls and has great tips. She is a super skilled and professional stylist, and also an awesome human! She is so calming, patient, and knowledgeable. I recommend her to every wavy/curl-haired person I know!
