Jamie, born in Houston, considers herself lucky enough to call Austin her place of residence for over ten years. She has over eight years of experience with hair. Before graduating cosmetology school in 2004, she found that both cut and color were her passion. After apprenticing at a small Austin boutique salon, she found her home at Topaz a year later. Her work techniques vary in that she loves taking direction, but also works extremely well with clients who give her creative license. Her specialties include highlights, balayage highlights, ombre, full color, corrective color and cuts that work with the hair's natural texture.
