Courtney began her journey at 19 graduating from Pivot Point Academy, just outside of Chicago. Ever since she was a young girl, she has had a passion for the beauty industry. After obtaining her license, Courtney started working in a very prestigious salon in Chicago as a colorist. Finding herself in Delaware, she has worked locally in an Aveda salon as a Senior Stylist. She has had advanced training in numerous color lines, including Wella, Redken, Aveda, and Schwarzkopf. Also trained in So-Cap hair extensions, NovaLash eyelash extensions, Keratin, and Brazilian Blowouts.
In the times that she isn’t behind the chair, she is Momma to three wonderful and very busy children.
Courtney has dreamed of spreading her wings and and using her experience and knowledge of the industry to run and manage her own salon. She met Taryn and Lori, who have been friends and business partners for 13 years. Together they have a mutual desire to open and run the first blow dry loft in Sussex County! They are excited for this new adventure together and know it will be successful in the beautiful coastal town of Lewes, Delaware.
“I can honestly say I love what I do, choosing this career path has never felt like ‘job’. Seeing a client leave with a smile on their face and enhancing their confidence truly makes my heart happy! Working in a positive, classy, and happy environment is ultimately the vision of our Tribe.”
I have always been a hair person. Those who know me, know I’m not a huge makeup wearer, but I believe in a great hair style. If my hair doesn’t look good, I feel like I don’t look my best. I’ve been doing hair since my first daughter was born 18 years ago. One more daughter and a step-daughter later-I have done their blow-outs, homecoming and prom hair. Needless to say I have had a lot of practice. I also coached cheerleading for 7 consecutive years during which I completed too many updos, hot sets and braids to count. Come to G & E and let me give you a great wash, blow-out and style! I look forward to seeing you soon!
I've always lit up when it comes to anything hair, and make-up. Nothing makes you feel more like a real Cinderella than getting all dolled up. Whether it's for an event, or just because. I've always helped my girlfriends with their hair and make-up. Making someone feel beautiful is the most rewarding feeling. I'm so excited to be part of the Grove + Evelyn tribe. I can't wait to continue to learn more, and grow, and am looking forward to making every client feel special!
I grew up watching my Mom and my Aunties in their vanities making themselves pretty for the day. The first time I ever did hair was when my Mom's friend, who owned a salon, was short-staffed and needed me to help out. It was there where they taught me how to get in and really scrub in a good shampoo. During high school, I worked as a personal assistant to an Aveda Senior Stylist. I attended several classes and fell in love with the cosmetology field! After moving to DE, I spread my wings and worked in quite a few local salons. I am forever grateful for all that I have learned over the years, and am excited to be part of the G + E tribe!
My goal in life is to make everyone I meet smile...at least once!
