WHO IS TARA?

Colorist. Educator. Salon Owner. Wife. Friend. Sister. 

First off I am a lover of coffee, local shops, fresh flowers and a little designer fashion. You can find me in the aisle of Target on my days off and my browser history would show my true shopaholic nature. My friends would tell you how much I love to host parties and potlucks, and how I am always trying to get them to participate in game nights.  My husband Kyle has been my rock and biggest supporter. We love to bbq, go camping and travel the world together. 

 

The first time I stepped into a Salon, I immediately fell in love with the atmosphere. I have always had a passion for many things, but hair just brought a sense of accomplishment, challenge and joy to my life. Licensed Cosmetologist since 2004, I have the utmost respect for our industry. Its been a wonderful journey, and my career wouldn't be possible without the amazing clients I get to service on a day to day basis. Nothing brings me more happiness than to make someone feel and look beautiful. Keune Hair Cosmetics has been my luxury color product choice for over 7 years. I started educating for the company in 2011 and I am blessed to be able to travel the U.S. while inspiring other hair stylists with the newest products, trends and techniques. In 2018, I became one of the new owners of KINshoppe Salon in Ventura, CA. I have always wanted to own a salon so I am excited for this journey. My love for education and dedication to this craft has allowed me to give my clients the absolute best experience in the salon. I strive everyday to learn something new and keep challenging myself to be a better hairdresser for my clients and salon owner for my stylists.
