When did you know you wanted to be a hair stylist and how long have you been in the industry? I have wanted to be a Hairstylist since I was a child. I’ve been in the industry for over 20 yrs.

What is your favourite color trend or hairstyle? My favourite color trend is vibrant reds. My favourite hairstyles are textured cuts or pixies.

Describe your personal style and tell us what inspires your creativity? My personal style is classic with a modern touch. I get my creativity from other artists and nature. From following trends and applying that to the guests requests.

What is your favourite Redken product? I have 2 – Redken Extreme Cat and Redken Extreme Bleach Recovery Lamellar Treatment. The two go hand in hand to protect the hair and help make it more vibrant.

When did you take the Redken Certified Colorist Exam and what was the exam preparation like? I became Redken Color Certified in May of 2018. The Redken Color Certification Exam was intense and full of detailed information. Well planned and executed.

What are the greatest benefits you received from becoming certified? The greatest benefits I received from being certified were the proper knowledge of Redken color as well as the proper application. Professionalism and credibility come along with it.

What sets you apart from other stylists? I feel what sets me apart from other stylists is my education and understanding of the industry. Knowing on-going education is key. Learning not only by taking classes but from colleagues and guests. Having the right verbiage and etiquette to be successful.

Why should other stylists strive to become Redken Color Certified? Becoming Redken Color Certified builds a professional portfolio. It gives you credibility in your industry as well as helps your guests feel they are in capable hands.
