Academy Stylist

What makes you passionate about your career as a stylist?

Ever since I was six years old, I have always enjoyed doing hair and drawing sketches. I am also a "people person" who enjoys face-to-face interactions and conversing with many different people. I had travelled as volunteer and had taken a few college classes for nursing, but I ended up coming back to the career I had known was right for me since elementary school! I love what I do because it encompasses all of the things I enjoy: working with my hands, having a creative outlet, having one-on-one conversations, and helping people feel good.

 

What is your favorite Aveda product? 

Hands down Shampure's Dry Shampoo; It makes my hair feel clean and gives hair great volume! 

In your creative process, which concepts are most sacred? 

Communication within the consultation- I aim to bring my client's vision to life and understanding their ideas through communication is crucial in doing so. 

What is your favorite memory from your career?

When one of my client's had returned to me and told me they did so because I had given them the best hair cut they had had in their entire life!

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Anything by Crosby, Stills, and Nash! Who knows, maybe I was born in the wrong decade.

In your creative process, which concepts are most sacred? 

When I have a client in my seat the most important part of my creative process is listening. I need to hear what my client wants and what he or she is expecting from me. When we both have come to an agreement, then that’s when the magic can happen.  

  

​What is your favorite memory from your career?

I had a client come in who had alopecia. I noticed when she came in she never had much done to her hair because she had a hair pattern that was inconsistent. I made time to make her a hair piece and applied it to her in her appointment. She couldn’t speak because she suffered complications from a disability, but the smile on her face when I turned her to look in the mirror was what made me realize that this was exactly what I wanted to do; share memorable moments with people, being able to inspire people by doing what I love and being inspired by them.

What is the soundtrack to your life?

My spectrum in music ranges from “Killing Me Softly With His Song” by Roberta Flack to “Did My Time” by KORN, both bring me memories of times in my life.
