ABOUT THE HAIRSTYLIST

Hi, I'm Iza!
Your local Hair Extension Specialist

My story begins in a small Polish village where every Saturday my mama would take me to her weekly salon visits. I can still see that place. It was a small 200 square foot room filled with the smoke of the 1980s. I would sit, and watch as the ladies were pampered and imagined a day when I could take part in the tradition. That salon is where, as a little girl, I fell in love with the fun, creative environment of the hair industry.

 

 My family and I immigrated to the US  when I was 10, leaving the place I called home for better opportunities. I spent my teenage years in New Britain, Connecticut, as a small polish town we all called “New Britski.” Today its legally named Little Poland. 

 

While growing up, I spent so much of my time doing all of my friend's hair and makeup. When I was 23, I married my current husband, a Marine in the US military and we moved to California. Soon after we started our beautiful family and after a few years, I knew that it was time I finally pursued my passion for hair.  

 

In 2009 in Temecula, California I graduated from Paul Mitchell School of Cosmetology and was awarded the Visionary Award and high honors. For my accolades, the school sent me to a four-day intensive color training with a celebrity hairstylist in Hawaii where I discovered my enthusiasm for blonde color and extensions. Through the years I have continued to educate myself in a constantly evolving profession. I am certified in multiple extensions methods. I go to annual events and gatherings to learn and challenge my abilities in the salon and am always excited to discover new techniques and practices to bring back to my clients. 

 

I'm a Polish girl living the California dream! I am so excited to meet you, learn more about you, and go on this journey with you.
