What are your go-to products?
If I was stranded on a deserted island from most to least: Davines hair refresher
, the whole Eufora AloeTherapy
line and Davines dry texturizer
What would you tell your younger self?
Don't be so hard on yourself, pause more, be present more, celebrate every single victory, write it all down.
What made you open a salon?
The Greater cause, wanting to give the knowledge that I have gained to all my peers. To create
opportunities for growing stylists and curate a place for all humans to gather.
What made you pursue the beauty industry and what is your favorite part?
The ability to be in such close contact with people and having them leave a better version of
themselves. I love the education and the direction that the industry is taking - being a part of the movement to create hairstyling as a respected profession along with the collaborative efforts of being a committed with all my fellow salon owners and peers.
What inspires you?
My entire environment, everyday. Smiles out of people's faces, conversations I get to have with people and watching the industry grow.
What have been your "keys to success?"
Learning to slow down and listen to my intuition. Leading with Love. Hushing the "you can't" voice.
