What inspired you to get into the art of hair color?

My mom inspired me to get into coloring hair, I was freshly out of high school and feeling very lost and unsure of what I wanted to do with my life. I had always had fun styling my friends' hair and doing their makeup so she suggested I go to beauty school. I ended up loving it and found it to be the creative outlet I needed. Hair is ever changing, the trends inspiring, pushing me to always think outside of the box.

What was your inspiration for this look?

The inspiration for this look was a combination of Cyber Punk and experimenting with shapes and colors. When it comes to color the overall vision forms during the process for me.

What would winning the 2022 XMONDO Color Awards mean to you?

For me, winning this award would establish so much validity for my work in this industry. Stylists I’ve admired for a long time are submitting for this award and to even be among their ranks is an honor. It would give me a platform to stand on and allow me to expand both my brand and my career.
