Newport Beach, California
What do you love about TruMatch?
TruMatch Tape-In Hair Extensions have allowed me do extensions that match with the individual's right texture of hair!!!
How long have you been working in the hair industry and what was your inspiration to join the hair community?
I’ve been making Newport Beach beautiful since 2004 and was a hair educator for multiple professional hair brands in the past.
What personality traits do you feel are most beneficial to your success?
I’m a great listener which allows me to understand exactly what my clients desire and be able to portray that look onto their hair. I also have a skill for education, I am able to advice my clients with the best hair option for them and I always educate them on how to recreate their style at home. It's the worst to leave the salon and not be able to style your hair at home.
How do you maintain a work-life balance?
I work hard and play hard!
What do you like to do outside of the salon?
First of all, my family is most important to me and then my Harleys and classic cars... haha!
If you were to travel anywhere in the world, where would that be and why?
I have never been to Europe and I am dying to go sometime, the architecture is amazing!
If you could pick a celebrity, a public figure or anyone at all, whose hair would you love to work on?
I am not picky, but Gwen Stefani would make me happy.
Where do you usually look to for inspiration?
I like to follow trends from Europe, I've been doing Balayage since 2007. Fashion from Europe is always ahead of the game.
Best advice to future stylists?
Assist and go above and beyond! This industry is tough, but if you don't have a fire under you, you won't last long.
Do you have a favorite mantra, a quote or a saying you like to keep in mind?
"It's only hair".
