Why did you choose Hairdressing as your career?
To make people feel good... One snip at a time.
What aspect of Hairdressing is your ‘area of expertise’ and what do you enjoy most about it?
Cutting & Business Support. Being M.A.D.... Making A Difference
What do you love about Hairdressing and what frustrates you the most?
There are no two people the same, as there are no two haircuts the same. This is what I love! What frustrates me? Nothing 😊
Who are your industry icons and why?
From my Paul Mitchell family Robert Cromeans, Angus Mitchell, Stephanie Koselkski. These talented individuals have all shared with me technical cutting, business knowledge, & self-belief. Vidal Sassoon for being a true hairdressing icon with forward-thinking creativity, while always staying true to the foundations of hairdressing - the A,B,C way. My Australian GIANT mentor Donna Gannon for all the business knowledge, direction & support she has offered me.
What product can’t you live without and why?
Paul Mitchell Invisiblewear. It’s a category that as a stylist enables me to put a tick in the boxes for cleansing, conditioning, styling & finishing. At the same time my salon guests enjoy the feeling of their hair not being weighed down or the need to cleanse too often.
How do you challenge yourself?
Learning something new every day while drawing on the fundamentals I have embraced over my 30+ year journey.
