What’s your favorite product from EISS?
I work in a Keune
exclusive salon. I couldn’t select one product that is my favorite; however, some honorable mentions are Keune Care Keratin Smooth 2-Phase Spray
, Keune Keratin Curl Volume Root Boost Gel
, Keune Style Blowout Gelée N°56
. Other EISS favorites are Brazilian Blowout Anti-Frizz Conditioner
, Brazilian Blowout Ionic Bonding Spray
and the Oligo Lighteners
What new skills would you like to learn?
A skill that I would like to learn is getting more in-depth with cutting hair. I specialize in extensions, so I feel I have the least amount of education in haircutting.
Who’s your biggest mentor?
My biggest mentor is Marissa Larson, @hairbymarissasue
. Her business is similar to mine and I take her educational classes. They benefit me in terms of how to run a successful business.
Where do you find your inspiration?
Instagram, other stylists, and clients
What is the most rewarding part about being a stylist?
Being my own boss and having the ability to control the money I make, and having the ability to be flexible with my schedule.
What is your favorite cutting or coloring technique?
Extensions coloring and cutting.
What about styling?
Beach waves, smooth blowout, and overall giving my clients shiny smooth hair, especially with extensions.
How do your clients feel about that?
My clients always like the looks I create for them. There’s nothing better than getting your hair done by a stylist!
What is a word of advice that you have for new stylists?
To work and respect seasoned stylists that help you in your journey. I mentor a lot of stylists and I like having that respect.
How do you like to spend your days off?
Spend time with family and work to be with them and support them.
Favorite pick-me-up in the middle of a busy salon day?
Good food and a Dr. Pepper!
