Tara got her start in the beauty industry immediately after finishing high school. Tara moved from Clearwater, Florida to the Midwest, where she completed cosmetology school. In 2010, Tara started her career at a salon in Dayton, Ohio and ended up staying with that salon for seven and half years. Tara is Redken Color Certified and has an extensive education in cutting, color, and product knowledge. In 2017, she attended Redken’s Symposium in Las Vegas, where she expanded her knowledge even further.
Tara and her husband ultimately decided to move to Austin to be closer to his family, which led Tara to Urban Betty in October 2017. Tara enjoys accentuating people’s natural beauty through highlights and balayages. “I love that my job allows me to be artistic, with hair being my canvas.”
Tara loves the warm Austin weather and in her free time she enjoys going to Lake Travis and spending time outdoors. She currently lives in Round Rock with her husband.
