Stylist / Color
Q: How long have you been a stylist and what are your educational bragging rights?
A: I’ve been a stylist for a year and a half now. I went to Paul Mitchell in Reno. While I was in school I became extension certified by taking a class with Maria rose extensions doing: European bio-keratin bonding, hand tired wefts, no-see quick wefts, and nano hair restoration.
Q: What do you love about your craft?
A: I love seeing the smile on clients faces when you turn them around and they can see the final look. When they can feel the difference even the shampoo made on their hair or they like the hair spray, you can see how it just makes them kinda glow when they walk out the door. Having a client come back the next time and them saying how much they loved it just makes the process and time that went into the first time worth it. Also making it even more exciting to do it again the second time or third or fourth etc.
Q: What do you specialize in?
A: It’s not very common but I love doing perms, it just so happens to be that they are trending again! As well as doing 100% grey coverage colors/ root touch up’s. Hair cutting and styling might be my favs tho.
Q: What are upcoming trends in hair cutting coloring and products? What should clients look for when they’re shopping for a stylist?
A: When looking for a stylist you should be able to talk with them easily and feel like both of you know what’s going to happen and why. Also so you two can discuss and decide what’s best and what can we do to your hair to give it new life or a different one all together making you feel good. When you love your look and you have a good experience in the salon with me makes me feel good.
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: I am a movie lover so I get lots of inspiration from movies and shows. Walking around outside in crowds/at events, I’m always Looking at everyone’s hair to see if I can find something new and cool to try on clients or even myself. Being part of “Gen Z “ and all I’m on instagram and Pinterest, TikTok seeing all kinds of new way to this or doing this makes you faster with cleaner lines.
Q: What charitable organizations are you passionate about?
A: The human society, I love all animals.
Q: How do you spend time when you’re not knee-deep in your craft?
A: I enjoy watching dramatic movies and shows on Netflix and watching classics with my dad. Hanging out doing crafts with my mom. My grandparents and my sister and I go for lunch or coffee when we all have the same time.
Q: Why are professional hair care products important?
