What do you love about doing hair?
Doing hair is my main creative outlet. I come from a big family of artists but could never paint or play music like they could. In junior high I started experimenting with hair color and found that I could use my creativity to bring joy to other people. I love seeing a color or cut come together with a beautiful blowout, that's when I feel really accomplished. I am an empath and love making others feel great about themselves because I can always share in their feelings.
What are some of your specialties?
+ Curly & wavy textures. Creative cutting. Long, colorful mermaid hair!
What's your secret weapon for great hair?
PRODUCTS! I love the variety we have at VAIN because I can create the perfect cocktail catered to each client's hair texture or style. The right product can create a bold style that won't budge or a natural look for those clients who want a softer feel.
What are your hair style influences?
Music is a huge passion of mine and musicians have definitely influenced my personal style and motivated me in this industry.
What's your approach with new clients?
I approach each new client with compassion, consideration and an open mind. I sit down with them during the consultation so we can connect right away. I listen carefully to what they want and, just as important, what they don't want.
What's the best hair advice you've been given?
Keep it simple! Don't overthink things. Ask plenty of questions.
What inspired you to become a hairstylist?
At a very young age, I started experimenting with my own hair and make-up. I was really influenced by alternative style & music. That was the spark that ignited my passion to become a hairstylist.
