Queen of Swords welcomes natural, air dried, low maintenance hairstyles. I encourage my clients to embrace their hair texture. It saves you loads of time. It is very New York to need things efficient, sustainable, and high quality. I intentionally design my haircuts to hold shape so that they can enjoy all stages of the grow out. I like to teach styling rituals that will empower and enhance your own unique beauty.

My philosophy is aligned with the curly girl method. Queen of Swords carries Deva Curl, Amika, IGK, Schwarzkopf hair color, Redken Shades, Pulp Riot and a few other product lines.
