I am extremely passionate about my work. I am a curly hair artist trained by Curly Hair Artistry at Oasis Salon in Rockville, Maryland, Devacurl certification at Deva Academy in Manhattan, New York. I have also trained with BlackGirlCurls in Cut it Kinky Live @Scene Salon, Dallas, TX
I’ve had curls all my life, and I’ve learned to embrace their natural beauty. It’s been quite the journey, which I am so very grateful for. Having been in the industry for 39 years as of July 2018, I have consistently navigated to hair with a ‘mind of it’s own’.
I experienced my first DevaCurl class in 2006, learning how to cut using the curl by curl method and to treat our curls like a very fine fabric. At the time it was confusing, yet fascinating! Throughout the years, I’ve incorporated this method into my work behind the chair. I still have much to learn... and so my journey continues. ‘Vacations’ consist of education and spending time with like-minded individuals that live and breath the very same passion that my soul embraces.
Another aspect of my core beliefs consists of embracing our God given gift of the change of hue that occurs to our natural hair’s color palette as we age. I am all about the journey to live and breath one’s authentic self ♥️

Finally someone that ‘gets’ my hair! After working against my wavy hair for all of my life, Joni taught me to heal my hair from damage of heat and processing. She cuts in a way that makes my waves beautiful, defined, and full of volume. She makes my waves dance!
Was very nervous, have tried so many times to tame my frizz. Joni was so sweet, she took the time to calm my nerves, cut my hair and teach me what to do at home. My hair has never been so soft, and no frizz just curls. Thank you Joni!
If you’re thinking about doing a deva cut or want to get your curls cut the right way, do it with Joni! Not only is she so sweet and listens to what you want, she also most definitely knows what she’s doing. Every time my curls need some TLC, she brings them back to life. Joni is the best and she won’t disappoint :)
Joni was a breath of fresh curly air! She's a patient, understanding & incredible stylist who really gets the challenges of curly hair & appreciates its beauty. She really tailors your cut/style to your hair type, lifestyle, & vision. Joni really ensures that her clients are not just satisfied with their cut but LOVE it. As someone who has had so many bad experiences with stylist who falsely claim they "know curly hair," Joni is one of few who actually does! Can't wait for my next cut with her. Such a delight!
I highly recommend Joni, I have been a loyal Devacurl product customer for years but never had the Devacut...I am so happy I finally did and so glad it was Joni who did the cut! My hair was very hard to manage, tangly, and damaged. My curls now look amazing and are easier to manage. I have received so many compliments! If you have curly hair, Joni will not let you down! She has made a client for life! ❤️
Joni is amazing! I've learned that you can't just trust anyone with your curly hair. Joni takes time, explains and is honest. I've been extremely satisfied with my cuts and colors by Joni. Looking forward to trying the Pintura coloring next!
