“Get in where you fit in.”
Short hair. Barbering. Clipper cuts. Fine hair. Bobs + layered styles.
Licensed stylist since 2008. At VAIN since 2007.
Describe your approach with first-time clients.
I love getting new clients. I like to get a clear sense of what you want, today and long term, and your hair’s basic structure before I pick up any tools. I’ll ask questions and give you feedback. I want to make sure my clients feel comfortable.
What are your style influences?
Men’s fashion and modern design in general, whether interior or architectural. I love the idea of designing hair- taking elements from different looks and piecing them together to construct a finished style. Tell me your favorite thing about these different haircuts and we’ll make something new.
Why become a hairstylist?
Hair incorporates fashion, trends, design, everything. It’s a way that I can be creative and be connected. I went to cosmetology school and I knew it was for me as soon as I walked in. It just felt right.
What are your interests outside of VAIN?
I DJ, travel, listen to music, and read a lot of magazines. I’ve also been known to watch a little Animal Precinct.
What are your goals as a hairstylist?
I want to learn as much as possible. I never want to stop learning about what’s new, what’s fresh. We have advanced education classes in cut and color techniques at VAIN that are great. Who knows where I’ll be in a year from now- I might be really into curly hair or something. But whatever my focus is, I’m pretty sure that it’ll involve fauxhawks.
