When and how did you get your start in the industry? (year, where, etc..,)
I went to a vocational school called North Point High School in 2013 where my hair career took flight.
Why did you choose the beauty industry?
I chose the beauty industry because growing up I had some serious self esteem issues and I found that making others feel beautiful in turn helped improve my own self confidence. I guess it showed me that if I can make others see how beautiful they truly are and feel as good as they should, well... then I'm worth something.
What do you love about working at The Hair Company?
I love that I work in an environment where we aren't just a regular salon where you just clock in and out, but we are very much so a family. We help each other grow and cheer each other on when we hit milestones. I love that here, the people that sit in our chairs are not just clients but guest that we are honored in getting to know.
