Why did you become a hairstylist?
I wanted to make people feel good and I wanted to create art. I can’t paint a painting but I can definitely paint your hair. I love working with my clients to come up with the perfect creative cut or color for them. Hair is a big deal to people and it’s amazing to see the pure happiness that can come out of doing it right. When you see that click it feels really good.
Tell us about your experience + education as a hairstylist.
I’ve taken advanced cut and color classes with Redken—I actually started out training under a national Redken artist. I’ve had my work appear in fashion shows as well as Allure and other magazines. Right now I’m interested in furthering my education around the world—I want to bring global style back as inspiration.
What about the wild updos you specialize in?
Anything that’s extreme, fashion forward, and fun. I don’t do average updos or pretty princess looks. I have a signature mohawk updo that I create with twists— then I rat it out, hawk it out, and it ends up looking like a punk rock zebra. It’s awesome.
At Megyn’s stylist station you’ll always find…
An early 70’s yellow leather bag that was my mom’s. I keep all my hair supplies in it. And the metal cuff bracelets I wear to put my hair clips on—they’re handy and look good, too.
What’s your approach with your own hair?
I like to take a break once in a while when it comes to my own hair and let other VAIN stylists have at it. I trust my co-workers—everyone here is artistic and knows what they’re doing.
Interests outside of work?
Photography and any wild activities that include nature, traveling, and fashion. I like an extreme and creative approach to hair and life in general.
