Age: 50

Years in business: 20

Background: “I am a color specialist and I learned from a master colorist. I use a hair-bond building system to reconstruct and preserve the integrity in the hair. It is used for damaged hair. I use Peter Coppola’s keratin smoothing system. I also do a Brazilian blowout to straighten the hair. I have been in Pahrump for 12 years. I spent some time in a California-based salon. I had an interest in hair as a young child when I styled my Uncle Charlie’s combover.”

First job: “I worked at Wendy’s.”

Personal: “I like bodybuilding and used to compete. I once got third in show, and I hope to start doing that again.”

Business climate: “What keeps people coming back to me is my consistency. I try to keep the integrity of their hair always intact. My clients are more than just clients, they are my friends. I truly care about them and I still have clients that I used to do in Las Vegas. I take pride in my work and it is my name on their hair. I always listen to my clients and do what makes them happy because at the end of the day it’s their hair and they have to be happy.”

IN SEASON: The beat on beets

I’ve noticed that one of the most requested items at the Farmers Market is beets. It mystifies me because I am not a fan of the flavor. Beets are fun to grow though, and very versatile. They are also easy to grow and have a quick turn-around from seed to harvest.

IN SEASON: Mesquite, one of the desert’s most plentiful crops

IN SEASON: Broccoli, the gem of a cool season vegetable garden

It may be hard to imagine as we head into Labor Day weekend with excessive heat warnings, but fall, with its cooler temperatures, is just around the corner. Fall brings not only cooler temperatures but a new growing season, and maybe even the easiest time to grow a garden in our year-round growing climate.
