What is your specialty, relaxed, natural hair, locs or anything special?
I specialize in short cuts relaxed or natural.
What in your opinion is the most rewarding thing about working as a hair stylist?
Adding to the beauty a client already has and watching them confidently walking out the salon ready to take on the world.
When you meet that customer that has not had a great experience with a previous stylist, how do you make them comfortable while in your chair?
I start with a consultation to see where we she is and I make a road map to where she wants to go. Wether that can happen in 1 visit or 4 I plan accordingly and I am always honest so the client won’t feel disappointed.
If you could change one thing about the cosmetology industry what would that be?
Would make a law for kitchen stylist to make it harder for them to undercut licensed professionals.
