ELLE ET LUI FAMILY
When i first came to The United States, I was lucky enough to join a great family owned company as Manager of multiple jewelry stores. I loved what I did and the people I worked with. In 1998 I moved to Virginia with my two daughters and immediately joined Elle Et Lui family as salon Manager. Over the last 15 years, I have been given the opportunity to work with great people. I have enjoyed the time I have spent here and look forward to work here years to come.

I have been a hairstylist for 37 years in Vienna Oakton area. You could say its my passion. After finishing cosmetology trainings, I furthered my education by attending advanced haircutting studies thru out the years, to present day.
My hairstyling philosophy has always been, “Less Is More” and remains so.
I gravitate towards the classics, while staying abreast of new fashion trends in
hair. I work with my clients to achieve hairstyles that are modern yet easy to maintain, in the salon as well as home. It’s been my pleasure to offer my expertise at Elle Et Lui Salon & Day Spa for the last 8 years.
I am from UK and have been in the US for a number of years. I did my hairstyling training in a salon in the UK as an apprentice for three years. We do not have licenses, We have papers at the end of the three years, confirming out training. So I had to learn the theory to take the state boards.
I have worked in Mississippi, Ohio and Virginia. I moved to Fairfax in 1983 and
have worked in the Oakton, Vienna area since then. I have been with Elle Et Lui for 14 years.
I’ve worked here at Elle Et Lui for about 10 years. My career as a hairstylist goes back some 40 years and includes advanced training in London England.
I enjoy all aspects of my profession. Pictorial cutting and haircutting are two of my specialties. Having curly hair myself, I love helping people to embrace their own curls and find the perfect “DO”.
A London trained stylist! I have been working with Elle Et Lui for 10 years. A thirty year resident of Vienna, I am an expert at all facets of hair design.
I have been working in the Vienna area for a long time. It has been challenging but fun working the latest up to date styles into our more conservative area.
