Tania was drawn to art from a young age when she began painting and drawing. As she grew older, a non-traditional art form, hair dressing, took precedence, which was evidenced by her experimentation with her own hair. Hair coloring quickly became her career objective. After graduating from Aveda Beauty School, she came to Gleam as an assistant and completed the Colorist training program in a swift manner. She draws inspiration from the music, art, and fashion in the alternative/punk scene and cites David Bowie as her hair idol.
