Becky grew up as a farm girl in Walford. Her passion for hair started as a young girl “playing” with her mom and sisters’ hair. She dreamed of being a hairstylist.
She graduated from Stewarts School of Hairstyling in Davenport. Her first hairstylist job was a salon on the southeast side of Cedar Rapids which she stayed at for about 9 months. She decided to move back to Davenport to work at Stewarts salon, but after 3 months in Davenport, at the ripe old age of 19, they asked her if she would move back to Cedar Rapids to be the manager of the first Stewarts salon the company opened up here.
Becky was the manager of that salon for 5 years. After having her first daughter, she gave up her manager position but stayed on as an assistant manager for an additional 3 1/2 years before deciding to become an independent contractor.
She has gained many wonderful clients and has had many fabulous experiences as a hairstylist. Becky and her husband have been married for 41 years. They enjoy traveling as well as gardening and cooking projects. Classes have always been a very important part of her career. She has never attended classes JUST to fulfill her state license requirement, as education is an integral part of this profession. She attends as many classes as she can to stay on point in this profession.
Becky’s all time favorite mentor, Wayne Grund, is who introduced her to a safer hair product line, Surface, which she retails and uses exclusively on all of her guests. She loves doing colors, scissor and razor cutting and pampering all of her guests with some of the highest quality products in the industry. Hairdressing isn’t just a job for her it’s her passion.
