Level 4 Stylist
Hi! My name is Neli and I’ve been a stylist for nearly a decade. My goal is to provide my clients with a fun, inclusive and safe space to live out their hair dreams.
I specialize in vivid/fashion colors, blonding and color corrections, bespoke haircuts, and am a Master Extension artist. I love a challenge and will always think outside the box to get you your desired result! Looking for a transformation? I’m the stylist for you!
My highest priority is to build and maintain genuine and lasting relationships with my clients, ensuring a visit that will leave you feeling relaxed, refreshed, and glowing. I love learning about everyone’s lives and giving them space to decompress from their day-to-day lives while they’re in my chair.
When I’m not in the salon you can catch me getting tattooed, binging all things books, TV/movies, and running through a Harry Potter marathon with my two little girls.
Schedule your next appointment with me and let’s get you feeling like the best version of yourself!

How long will my extensions last?How long your extensions last will depend on a few factors- Which method you have installed Hand-tied wefts, I-tips, and tape-ins are typically 6-8 weeks- hair lasts 8-12 months depending on at home hair. Keratin Fusion are typically 12 weeks How often you wash/color your hair The more you wash your hair, the more product and styling you will have to do. This can strip the protective aspects of the hair, so we recommend using products such as dry shampoo or cleansing conditioners to avoid shampooing as often as you would your natural hair. Your aftercare products It's important that you use the aftercare recommended for your extensions. Many store-bought products have sulfates and silicones which are not healthy for hair, and professional products usually have protein in them because it is something our natural hair needs. Extensions go through an extensive Using regular shampoos could over-proteinized your extensions, making them feel brittle and dry. We guarantee the quality and longevity of your hair by sending you home with the proper products for your extensions as part of your total appointment experience. The type of water you have (Well vs Hard) Minerals and deposits in well water can take away the moisture in your hair and cause build-up. This can be remedied by an attachable shower filter OR by doing regular detoxes in your hair to prevent the build-up. This is something that can your extension specialist can help you resolve. How you style your hair after washing/ before going to bed. When washing your hair, we ALWAYS recommend drying it immediately. When our hair is wet, it is 50% more elastic meaning it is more prone to breakage. In order to prevent any friction that could cause breakage, drying your hair before going out or to bed is imperative. This also prevents moisture from building up in between your extensions, regardless which can lead to build-up and sometimes unpleasant smells.
What is the hair made of?Our extensions are made of 100% HUMAN REMY HAIR. Remy means that the cuticle of your hair is all laying in the same direction, the same way it grows out of our head. If you were to buy extensions that are not Remy, it would feel rough and be very prone to breakage and frizz due to the cuticles of your hair not laying smooth. We ensure that the extensions we use meet the highest standards for sourcing, quality, and regulation.
How do I maintain my extensions at home?As mentioned above, minimizing how much you wash your hair, using the recommended products, and styling it appropriately are all the best ways to maintain your extensions. Always reach out to your stylist with any questions- we are always here to help!
Can I swim with my extensions in?Yes! Some extension methods are more compatible than others, so always discuss with your stylist based on which method you get. We will almost always recommend that you use a shampoo or treatment after swimming to ensure you rinse out any chlorine or salt water that could damage your extensions or shift your color.
Can I wear my hair up?Yup! It's always a part of your consultation to discuss how you typically style your hair. We can ensure the placement for your chosen method will allow you the opportunity to wear your hair how you usually do. We can get creative with methods and placement, no worries!
Can I blow dry, flat iron, or curl my extensions?Of course! As mentioned above, we always recommend blow drying your extensions after washing. When it comes to irons and curlers, you should use heat protectants as you would on your normal hair, but otherwise you're free to style it as you normally would. Just be sure to ask your stylist what works best for your chosen method, since tape-ins and keratin-fusion specifically would just require you avoiding the bonds at your root!
Can the extensions be colored to match my hair?Yes - We will always order the extensions closest to the goal for your appointment, however, in the event they don't match perfectly, we will color them to get you that perfect blend!
Can my hair be colored with my extensions in?Absolutely. If you're someone who regularly gets your hair toned/glazed or your roots retouched, don't worry! You'll be able to get your hair colored as usual. We can not lighten your extensions (it could be very damaging to them and the color pigment is not the same as our natural hair), so be sure to discuss any dimension/balayage/lightness you want so that we can customize your color placement/ custom color lighter extensions for you as needed BEFORE installing.
Will I be able to feel the extension?The first few days may feel a little odd if you're not used to them, but within a few hours even, most people don't feel them! If they're properly installed you should not feel any lifting, loose threads, or pain. Hair extensions are a learning curve, but they provide endless opportunities to change your hair and experiment without permanence! At Maven, we are dedicated to providing you with the information and education you need to feel your best working with your extensions.
