WHAT IS YOUR POSITION WITHIN BEYOND BLONDE?
I'm a senior stylist and the owner of Beyond Blonde.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN WORKING AT BEYOND BLONDE FOR?
I was an employee for 2 years, then purchased it off my old boss 7 years ago. So 9 all up!
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN HAIRDRESSING?
13 years in May
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING AT THE SALON?
I love that I have created a safe place for all staff and clients. To empower people from any generation through the power of a great conversation and hairstyle. Its taken years of working for other people to see what worked well, and what didn't so I could blend that into my own slice of salon haven.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE TO DO AT BEYOND BLONDE THE MOST?
I love a good blonde, crave a colour correction, and find such satisfaction in bobs (especially concave styles)
WHAT’S THE CRAZIEST HAIRSTYLE YOU HAVE EVER HAD?
When your new to the industry, you want to try everything and eager to experiment. My craziest hair was white blonde all over in an on scalp application with bright hand painted pieces from pinks, purples, blues, greens and yellows on the ends. Talk about a high maintenance colour!
WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST IN THE INDUSTRY?
Sounds cliche', but my team. They are so passionate about their jobs, learning and the next big thing. We can watch and attend all the classes we want but nothing gives me chills the most than seeing my team come together and problem solve a correctional job, or a fun one!
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST CAREER HIGHLIGHT?
My biggest career highlights were winning apprentice of the year, and buying Beyond Blonde at 22.
DID YOU EVER CONSIDER ANOTHER CAREER?
I considered flight attending, but I wasn't tall enough. I wonder if those restrictions have changed? Haha
WHAT KEEPS YOU MOTIVATED?
I became a new mum in July 2019, so now I strive to create a beautiful life for my family. My friends and family are always there to push me and to encourage me. I'm a highly strung person when it comes to making the right decisions for the salon and take everything personally. So I need a lot of motivation and reassurance that I'm being the best boss, co-worker, stylist and mum on the daily.
IF YOU HAD A SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
If I had a superpower, it would be to heal. People deserve to live their best lives and often an injury or illness gets in the way.
Id like to take that burden away from anyone who needed it.
WHAT IS YOUR HIDDEN TALENT?
I can do hairdressing left and right handed. I was taught by a left handed hairdresser when I was an apprentice even though I'm normally right handed.
WHAT DAYS DO WE SEE YOU IN THE SALON?
