As a young girl I would lock my sisters in the bathroom so I could style their hair, more often than not against their will, they were my first clients, not necessarily by choice. I guess you can say I have always had an interest in hair and lucky enough to now have clients that choose to sit in my chair on their own. The creativity within the industry and the process behind the chair intrigued me. I always knew I wanted to be a hairstylist but it wasn’t until after finishing school I understood I had a true passion for it. The ability to make someone happy, change their day, change their life in a career that didn’t feel like work, it was fun, that was when this industry completely had my heart. I have immersed myself in this ever evolving industry for thirteen years and haven’t looked back since. From a personally humbling start with Supercuts, to working in a salon on Boston’s prestigious Newbury St. I have endured the beautiful insanity of fashion shows, photoshoots and movie trailers. I have been blessed to be a part of countless beautiful brides most special day, and with it all call me crazy, no stress but rather gratitude, motivation, excitement and drive. I found my way to working side by side with barbers pushing my own limits once again. I have become a stylist with a barber problem, always looking to grow, and to better myself. I crave education and stepping outside my comfort zone. If I did not find my passion for hair I would have become a teacher so it only seemed natural to accept a position with Floyds Barbershop on the National Education team. I’m not sure if there is much else more rewarding then sharing your gift and wealth of knowledge with others. Watching the “lightbulb” go off for someone when they gain a skill or confidence they did not previously have, that is what feeds my soul. The value of putting in effort to bettering yourself in this endlessly evolving industry is immeasurable.
