What do you enjoy doing outside of work, and how does it help you maintain a work-life balance?

My fiancé (husband in august) and I are really into fast fun cars. We enjoy building them, taking them out for drives, showing them in car shows and occasionally racing them on the dragway. I love to read a really good book that hooks me in. And of course spend time with my family! I have 2 nieces and a nephew! I would say that these things help me have a good work life balance because there is nothing more relaxing to me that taking the top off the car and just taking in all the nature. My love language is quality time, so just being together, truly is my favorite thing.

Which we are very good about always having something available!

 

What is your favorite part about working with clients and helping them achieve their desired look?

Some of my favorite things about working with clients is just simply being able to build a connection with this, going back to my love language being quality time, it’s so Important to me to give them the best experience every time they sit in my chair, so I listen very deeply to them. Often times, people comment on how well my memory is, but it’s truly just because I’m genuinely interested in what they are telling me!

 

What hair care tips or advice do you typically give to clients to maintain their hairstyle?

Product is key to achieve the best style at home. Learning how to properly use the products, and to actually use them in their day to day routine will give them the best possible results day in and day out!

 

Share a memorable experience you’ve had with one of your clients while working as a hairstylist.

Over the last 10 years there are so many stories and memories that i hold with each and everyone of my guests that it is so hard to just pick one. I would say that I’m just truly lucky to be able to hold such incredible memories with each and everyone one of them. Most days I don’t know how I deserve to be surrounded by such meaningful, kind, beautiful people.

What advice do you have for new clients/clients wanting a change?

Come in with relatively clean dry hair. BRING PICTURES!! They don’t even have to look similar. During the consultation, we can look and see what parts of each picture you like and create a look just for you.
