When did you know you wanted to be a hair stylist and how long have you been in the industry? I started cutting my own hair, and whoever else’s that was brave enough when I was a teen, but my mom says she knew I would be a stylist as far back as 6 years old, when all of my Barbie dolls had Crayola marker dye jobs. I went to hair school in 2006, and have been at it full time ever since.
What is your favourite color trend or hairstyle? Definitely the vibrant colours, especially paired with edgy short cuts.
Describe your personal style and tell us what inspires your creativity? I like things to be unique, and colourful. The world can try to drag you down sometimes, and I think it’s really important to spread positive vibes, and encourage stepping outside the box, even if it’s just a little bit. I love being inspired by other artists, in and out of the hair industry.
What is your favourite Redken product? Iron Shape and Pillow Proof are always on my station, I would never heat style without them. Rough Paste is a must have as well, for finishing hair of any length.
When did you take the Redken Certified Colorist Exam and what was the exam preparation like? I took the exam in 2017. It was an intense period of studying, but Barb Horseman was always there to answer my questions, which really reduced my stress levels.
What are the greatest benefits you received from becoming certified? Definitely the confidence boost at the colour bar has been my biggest take away. Knowing the science behind my formulas helps predict the outcome, which makes the stylist, and client happy. For anyone contemplating doing the exam – don’t be afraid to ask for help
What sets you apart from other stylists? I take pride in my consultation, asking a lot of questions to help clients get the best out of their hair, not only in my chair, but also when they are home doing it themselves.
Why should other stylists strive to become Redken Color Certified? Becoming Redken Color Certified helped grow my business in multiple ways. I gained confidence in my formulating, which made for better results, and a more trusting experience with clients. Talking about it with clients let’s them know they are getting an above average service, and being able to help my fellow coworkers formulate makes me feel like I am contributing more to the team.
