What is your hair philosophy?

It’s not so important how your client’s hair looks when he or she leaves the salon, but how it looks the next day, the next week, the next month. It’s up to stylist to really educate their clients on how to properly style and care for their hair.

What is your education philosophy?

I always try to teach people about the importance of mixing things up – you never want to go on autopilot. Versatility benefits both the client and the stylist. It keeps us constantly thinking and learning and gives the client a new look. It also creates a stronger relationship and a higher level of trust. Starting with a good consultation is essential in determining what looks will work for your client. You have to find out what they’re doing at home and what their lifestyle is.


What inspires you?

I draw from so many things. I look to magazine ads and artists, I never stop looking around me. It’s important to always keep your eyes open – you never know what will inspire you!

What is your specialty?

Simplicity and versatility. I have become known for the way I can take a complicated style and simplify it through my explanations and through teaching tricks that make the style easier to accomplish. I also really believe in  and preach versatility. I see hair as an accessory that can and should change daily. Its’ important to show clients various ways that they can wear their hair.
