When did you know you wanted to be a hair stylist and how long have you been in the industry? This year is my ten year anniversary in the industry. Growing up I was always interested in math and science so I never expected to end up in the salon. Twelve years ago I was asked to be a hair model and after attending my first hair styling competition I was hooked on the passion, creativity and energy within the industry. I then decided to make a big change and begin my hair journey

What is your favourite color trend or hairstyle? My favorite color trend is without a doubt all over platinum blonde. I love the boldness of the look and the challenge in creating it.

Describe your personal style and tell us what inspires your creativity? My personal style could be described as edgy but the looks I create typically are more soft. I’m inspired by the creativity of others in the industry.

What is your favourite Redken product? My favourite Redken product is Powder Grip! I love the texture that it creates.

When did you take the Redken Certified Colorist Exam and what was the exam preparation like? I took the Redken Certified Hair Colorist Exam in October 2018. The exam preparation was a lot of work and hours spent practicing and studying. I’m so lucky to have written my exam with three of my co-workers, who were great support.

What are the greatest benefits you received from becoming certified? The greatest benefit of becoming certified has been the confidence I’ve developed in my knowledge of Redken’s coloring standards. For anyone contemplating doing the exam – I am always here to help.

What sets you apart from other stylists? What sets me apart from other stylists are my listening skills. I pride myself on a great consultation and being a patient listener.

Why should other stylists strive to become Redken Color Certified? Becoming a Redken Color Certified hair stylist gives you the confidence and knowledge to tackle so much in the salon. It sets you apart and says you are an expert in your industry
