Where are you from, and why did you choose to become a stylist?
I grew up in Nanuet, NY. I choose to become a stylist in high school because I always had a passion in hair. I was chosen for a program at BOCES Rockland, and decided to give it a chance.
How did you end up working at Shear Serenity?
I ended up working here when a friend from hair school worked here, but she was leaving to go to college. I got her position as an assistant straight out of high school, and been here ever since.
What is your biggest accomplishment in your career so far?
I think my biggest accomplishment so far is building up my clientele to what it is now, and feeling comfortable with my work that I provide for them.
What is your favorite product right now, and how would you recommend to use it?
My favorite product that I really love and always loved is the Loma Nourishing Oil Treatment. I use them on almost all my clients before blowing out their hair! It smooths out the hair nicely leaving no frizz, and it gives a great shine.
Do you have an absolute favorite part of your profession?
My favorite part of my profession is creating a look that my client comes in looking for. I love a fun before and after transformation, and seeing the clients reactions to their new look.
What would be typical “you” outside of work? Hobbies, activities, etc.?
Outside of work you can typically find me hanging out with my family, fiance, and friends. I love to both cook and go out to eat. Right now my life is occupied by planning our wedding!
