“If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.” I never understood this saying until I joined the Cutting Loose team in 2014. I pushed myself to leave of my comfort zone and made a drastic career change in my late 20’s. And it is with my Cutting Loose family, that I have discovered my passion. Protégé, the advanced training academy by Cutting Loose, opened my eyes to the beauty of French Hairdressing. It provided me the tools learn how to deliver exactly what my my guests’ wants are. During my second year of protege’ training, I had the honor of assisting salon owner, Coral Pleas, and Director of Education, Katie Steiner. In doing so, I also assisted for several photo shoots and major color corrections. As a stylist, my goal is create a unique and contoured look for my guests. One that is not only easy for them to manage at home, but flattering and beautiful. One of my favorite things to do behind the chair is to encourage change. Although it can be intimidating, it can also be liberating and fun. Above all, the most important thing to me is listening to my guests’ challenges and offer a tailored solution.
