Let me introduce myself!

My name is Jaimee. I have been with my amazing husband (a local high school LA teacher) for 8 years now and we have a beautiful blended family. Our kids range in age from a preschooler, a freshman, and 2 seniors!

I started my career as an Aveda stylist at Elevate Salon and Spa 8 years ago and I am excited to now continue my journey at Refinery Salon and Co! While at Elevate, I honed my skills with lots of classes from top professionals in the beauty industry, such as; Ana Karzis, Ian Michael Black, Alberto Rossel-Davis, Jeffery Scott, Jon Reyman, Wayne Grund, and Jeffery Miles Goldenstein just to name a few! I love education and never want to become complacent or stagnant in my craft or life.

I specialize in curly locks (as I am a fellow curly locks gal), updo’s, men’s cuts, balayage, and lived in blondes! I take pride in being a very honest stylist. I am thorough with my consultations and collaborate with my guests as to which looks are optimal for their hair, and maintaining integrity is always my top priority. I not only will give you a look that will have you leaving the salon feeling fabulous but I will inform you of which products will help you maintain your look at home.

A couple fun facts about me are that I've been in the “New York Times” twice and in the “Rolling Stone” once. Lastly, I speak Spanish so fluently that once I was asked what part of Mexico I am from

I look forward to meeting you!
