Beauty Did you always want to be a hairstylist?

In my heart YES... I always though I would be a lawyer my Father told me I would be, but my heart always leaned to beauty and HAIR. As a young girl, I would comb my barbies' hair and teach myself how to braid at age 5. When my Father saw me making creations with my dolls, he knew he has lost his "Attorney at Law" and I knew then my passion and talents lie in my hands and me becoming a Hairstylist!!!

My family and Friends prompted me to get into hair! I became their personal hairstylist. Everyone saw my passion and skills and encouraged me to pursue my dreams because they believes in me becoming successful in the industry!

Beauty What's the biggest challenge you faced on your road to becoming a Hairstylist?

The biggest challenge I faced on the road to becoming a Hairstylist was finishing Cosmetology School after being in a bad car accident. My injuries caused me to drop out at the time I had one month to finish school. The school then to me in order To return I would have to repeat 3 more months of school to complete program. This set me back along with being a single parent of 3 at the time also had some challenges.  But I did go back and finish!

Beauty Where do you find your inspiration?

Believe it or not, I sometimes get visions in my dreams that I believe are from God. Other times my environment, Fashion magazines, movies shows in TV, music, and even other stylists( rookie or veteran) inspire me to create!!!

Beauty If I asked your educator one negative and one strength about you what would they be?

My educator would tell me I'm a strong Hairstylist in making hair perfect and polished, every strand in place. That I have MEAN hair cutting skills. They would also tell me that I lack time management in completing a task in timely manner because of my OCHD(obsessive- compulsive  HairDresser Disorder)!
