Heather

Salon Owner

I absolutely love my career! I have been in this amazing industry since 2002.  I attended the Paul Mitchell school in San Diego California, and then continued on to work at Jet Rhys a Vidal Sassoon Salon. I was so blessed to receive an amazing education at Jet Rhys through my apprenticeship followed by a 6 year career as a cutting, updo, extension specialist and teacher. Born and raised a southern California girl, I came to Topeka in 2010 and it has become my home. There are so many amazing things happening with NOTO and Downtown Topeka I just really wanted to be a part of it all! Being able to build my dreams here has truly been an amazing experience.  I can’t wait to be able to share my dreams with all of you!

I live by this quote "Do what you love, and you will never work a day in your life".... I love people. I am highly educated and experienced. I have been doing hair since 2006, licenced in 4 different states, and I will never stop learning and growing. To me hairstyling isn't just a job, it's a way to build lasting connections. I'm beyond excited to be able to offer my clients the best color line, products, service, and atmosphere in Topeka. Welcome to Onyx!

I love my job! It’s always been important to me to love what I do, and I’ve found exactly that. I’ve been doing hair since 2016. I graduated from Z Hair Academy in Lawerence. I specialize in all color! Color is passion, I love seeing my clients face when they get the “big reveal”. Being Topeka born and raised I love spreading the happiness that hair can bring and seeing it around town! I can’t wait to share my love for hair and our community with you!

I am so excited to be working at Onyx Salon and Wellness Spa. I was born and raised here in Topeka and being a part of the ever growing and changing NOTO community makes me beyond proud. I attended B Street Design cosmetology school and have been working as a cosmetologist since 2009. My favorite part about my career is seeing my clients confidence grow after their appointment. Never under estimate the power of a fresh haircut or new hair color.
