How long have you been a stylist?
What are you up to right now in terms of your career?
I'm an independent contractor, manage my own business and am blessed with a full clientele.
What do you attribute to your quick success?
Aside from working hard and focusing on my skills as a colorist and cutter, I credit social media, which has has benefited my career in every way imaginable. It inspires me on a daily basis and the networking opportunities are invaluable. I've also gotten nearly all of my clients from social media-especially Instagram. It's an amazing tool for growing all stylists' business.
What is your favorite thing to do behind the chair?
Vivids! It's so satisfying to create a clean slate and see the bold colors light up the hair.
Would you like to share a vivids hair color tip?
Yes! I believe it's important to try every color line. I use Pravana, Manic Panic, L'Anza Vibes, Joico Color Intensity, Kenra Color Creatives and others. Being knowledgeable with several vivid lines will help you to always create the perfect shade.
