ER: What is your most challenging situation?
A: My most challenging situation is not being able to perform at optimal level in my salon. When I have a bad day I try not to let it show through my performance at work.
ER: What unique experiences separate you from the rest of the industry?
A: I’m definitely Avant-Garde. I don’t usually follow trends..I build on them and put my own twist. I dare to be different. If everyone is, wearing brown in the winter, then I will do red with platinum highlights!
ER: In closing, what does the beauty industry mean to you and how do you think it has changed the game?
A: The beauty industry to me is an array of collections. I think that because styles never really go out of style, they just evolve. As people continue to bring back trends and build on them, it gets better. I love to see people thinking outside of the box.
