Taya was a Psychology major when she realized her true calling: she wanted to help people feel pretty and see how beautiful they really are, inside and out. So she switched gears and started attending the Aveda Institute in San Antonio. With a background in the arts, she was a natural at hairdressing. While still at the Institute, Taya began working at Avant’s San Antonio location in Quarry Village as a receptionist and that’s how we discovered her talent. Now she feeds her love of creativity and learning in the same field under industry leaders such as Dylan Sit, Maurice Tidy, Hauns Korpella, Connie Strang, and Jami Eastin. She says, “This business is nothing BUT learning. It’s always changing… and I LOVE that.” Taya enjoys doing short hair cuts on men and women, curly or straight. She excels in groomed or avant-garde looks. She loves using the scissor-over-comb technique as well as clippers for precision. In her free time, Taya is all about music, singing and dance.
