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

I started off doing hair by creating a perspective with haircutting and solely focused on that for a couple of years. I would collaborate with colorists and be so amazed by how it transformed and inspired my creativity for haircutting shapes that eventually I started being inspired to come up with the color myself. You have to build the house before you can paint it; and now I am so enjoying getting to do the painting.

What was your inspiration for this look?

My inspiration for this look came from a collaboration with my model, Kendell. She picked out the colors she wanted which gave me some much needed parameters. I then took those colors and designed for the haircut. I knew I wanted it to be bold but also soft with a lot of dimension. Designing the cut and color together creates the full fantasy for me.

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

Winning the ’22 XMONDO Color Awards would mean so much to me! The fact it would be off a public vote, with an incredibly large reach, is so exciting because it gives me feedback on where I am in my hair journey. I really hope people resonate with what I’ve created.
