WHEN DID YOU START YOUR CAREER AT SASSOON AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SASSOON?


My career started at Sassoon in 2007 in Scottsdale, Arizona. I chose Sassoon because I wanted to be a part of something bigger! I wanted to surround myself with people that work at the highest standard, so that I could continually grow and learn my craft. 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?


I love that I have the ability to help people love their hair and I work with really cool people. 

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR CAREER HIGHLIGHT TO DATE?


I began teaching Advanced Education when I transferred to Seattle. There’s something really special about being able to share what we do with other people. Giving them more confidence, or inspiration to bring back to their team.  

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?


Street fashion and graffiti art. I’ve always loved looking at how young people dress in big cities like Tokyo and London. I love the bold, graphic lines of graffiti. It’s fun to find beautiful art in dirty alleys. Also, the whole Sassoon team; seeing what everyone is working on is daily inspiration. We have some of the most talented and creative people working with us. How could you not be inspired?

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS?


Practical. Meticulous. Loyal. 

YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN THREE WORDS?


Street. Comfortable. Minimal. 

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?


Here in Seattle with my amazing team. Cutting beautiful hair, sharing what we do and learning.

WHEN DID YOU START YOUR CAREER AT SASSOON AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SASSOON?


I started my career with Sassoon at the Academy a year and a half ago. Coming from a family of hairdressers, some of which have worked for Sassoon, I’ve always had a clear understanding of what precise technique and amazing hair looks like. Great hair and Sassoon are one in the same. So when I started my career in hair, Sassoon was the obvious choice.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?


Aside from being able to create beautiful hair, I love being able to connect with clients. People move so quickly in their day-to-day lives and I like the idea that I get to be a part of that small period of time when they’re taking care of themselves.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR CAREER HIGHLIGHT TO DATE?


My career highlight to date would be during my graduation at the Academy when I received Student Premier.

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?


I am most inspired when I’m surrounded by like-minded, creative people.

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS?


So. Many. Options.

YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN THREE WORDS?


Bohemian. Funky. Casual.

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?


In five years I hope to be working for the company, with a loyal and happy clientele surrounded by passionate and driven coworkers who push me to be better every day. Also I’d like to be a billionaire, and have a fox as a pet.
