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!
Our salon celebrated 10 years in business on Sept. 5th 2016. We want to celebrate this milestone by giving back.
That is why we teamed up with Penguin Plunge NY, a non-profit organization that helps the families of seriously ill children in meeting their medical and support costs as they focus on their children's help. You can read about the children and their families a little further down the page.
Celebrating our history of working with many local charities through the past 10 years, we are hosting a “Glam Up & Give Back” fundraising event at Knights Of Columbus, June 9th, 2017. We would appreciate your support. We would greatly welcome a donation of monetary gifts, products and/or services. Your donation will be raffled at the fundraiser to help raise funds for the 3 recipients of the Penguin Plunge.
Any donations are tax deductible through Penguin Plunge 501(c)3, and we can provide their tax exempt # upon request. Your establishment will be recognized as a contributor and advertised in promotional flyers, social media and at the event. Please contact us at (845) 735-3900 or email@example.com, if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
Your generosity and commitment to the children and their families is greatly appreciated!
