What do you love about TruMatch?
I love the quality of Trumatch Tape-In extensions, the super strong, and discreet extension tape tabs! I also love the option for wavy textured extensions. They are great for clients with wavy/curly hair that like to let the extensions air dry.
How long have you been working in the hair industry and what was your inspiration to join this community?
I have been licensed in the beauty industry for 20 years, but I’ve been doing hair my whole life. When I was 18 years old, my hairstylist suggested I attend beauty school since I was already doing hair. Then it clicked, “Duh! it’s been right in front of me this whole time” I said to myself and enrolled in beauty school.
What personality traits do you feel are most beneficial to your success?
Honestly, kindness, ambition, solid boundaries, and a desire to always be learning more about the hair industry.
How do you maintain a work-life balance?
10 years ago, I was working too much at the hair salon and burning out. Something had to change if I wanted to have longevity in the hair industry. I find that working 4 days a week with a day off every two days is the balance that I need to recharge and give the best version of myself to my clients.
What do you like to do outside of the salon?
Ooh this question feels like were dating and I like it. Nature grounds me, so I love hiking in the Santa Monica mountains or squishing some sand through my toes at the beach. I am also a big fan of shoving tasty foods in my face hole. Chill vibey atmospheres are a major plus, sometimes a good old Netflix, and pup snuggles day is complete perfection.
If you were to travel anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?
South Africa, Greece, and Netherlands are on the short list. Taking in new cultures makes my heart swell and feel so inspired.
If you could pick a celebrity, a public figure or anyone at all, whose hair would you love to work on?
This is a tough one, but I think it's Britney Spears. I'd love to help her with those hair extensions.
Where do you usually look to for inspiration?
Instagram has become such an incredible tool for hair inspiration. I've lost many hours liking and saving hair photos and hair videos. I also take classes as often as possible. I always feel super inspired after any hair education.
Best advice to future stylist?
Always have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Set good boundaries. Take care of your health. Have a positive attitude and be open minded. There’s always more to learn and that’s one of the many things that makes this career so amazing.
Do you have a favorite mantra, a quote or a saying you like to keep in mind?
"Do it with passion or don't do it at all".
