Q. When did you know you wanted to do hair?

A. I’ve always been passionate about fashion and art. At 23 I decided it was time to go back to school. I applied to university as a mature student (I wanted to be a lawyer) and didn’t get accepted. Next day I applied to the local hairstyling school. Within two weeks I fell in love. I honestly can’t imagine doing anything else now. I’m able to work with amazing people, be creative and listen to music all day. Life is good.

 

Q. What is your favourite part of your job?

A. Helping people feel confident and empowering them. If I can tweak the outside maybe the inside will get a boost too!

Q. Coffee or tea?

A. Coffee. Strong. Two milk and one sugar!
