What made you want to become a stylist?wanting something creative while always being able to be myself
Where and how do you find your inspiration? everywhere--usually from teens, young adults...i find these groups to be the most fashionable ...first to be in tuned with the newest trends in hair, make-up and clothes.
What part of hairdressing are you most passionate about and what part do you dislike? - I view hairdressing much like an artist views a painting...my canvas is my client...my scissors my brushes...and hair color my paint. My passion is similar to that of an artist: the magic of creating beauty.
If I have to choose what I dislike, I would have to say any kind of negative energy and perms....and this is not about hairdressing, but I really dislike mushrooms.
