Introduce yourself and tell us what inspired your interest in the beauty industry.

My passion for hair begin as a child, it was a gift that I certainly did not ask for but begin to love the older I got. I love the confidence that I provide for clients and more importantly, I love helping my clients reach a healthy hair goal.

Top hair trends to look forward to for the fall are goddess locs, two streak highlight around the face with a middle part, bobby-pinned styles, sleek ponytails, bangs, messy buns and so forth. However the main focus will be the color.
Share a few healthy hair care tips for women to keep in mind.
I’ll give you three healthy hair care tips that will change your world; deep condition, oil and trim your hair! A lot of people have a misconception that trims “help your hair grow,” when actually it helps you retain length! Your hair is going to grow regardless, it is your ends that cause more damage.

What advice would you share with younger women that are interested in entering the hair industry?
Just because you can do hair well does not mean you will automatically be successful. There are thousands of stylist, and even more people with a set stylist but do not let that discourage you; allow it to make you go harder. You are your walking billboard, every engagement you have with another individual is your opportunity to make a new client. Use all platforms to promote your business.
