Q&A

Influences: Laurie Foley, who in one word embodies 'seamlessness,' and is akin to watching a classical, master artist at work. I apprenticed with Laurie when I moved to New York in 2001. She introduced me to the balayage technique -- just one small example of her varied skill set -- and I haven't touched a foil since. I also learned from French colorist, Stephan Pous, who traveled to Bumble and Bumble to teach his style of balayage. Laurie and Stephan are pioneers of the technique, with two distinct and completely different approaches in their texture and placement. I took what I loved from each and developed my own individual style.

Motivation: It's hard to describe. Hair--color in particular--is such an emotional thing. When you hit that right combination of colors (hair, skin, eyes, clothing, etc.) it's such a special effect... I love when this happens!

Q&A

Influences: Orlando Pita, Laurie Foley, my father

Inspiration: I draw inspiration from art (museums, and especially street art.) I'm inspired when I travel to exotic destinations--specifically beach destinations and when I'm on the beach and the sun is setting. Music inspires me, rhythmic patterns, beautiful voices, and clever lyrics. My teammates inspire me.

Dream Client: Marylyn Monroe - to me, she is the ultimate platinum blonde. Jessica Rabbit - she is the most amazing redhead. Mila Kunis - she always has the smokiest hues of brown.

Q&A

Inspiration: The big picture, the small, small details, and everything about the process in between. Once connections are made conceptually, most anything can inspire me. I love geeking out about how people do things. There is so much value that can come from either being extremely specific, or going rogue with your process. Also inspiring – plants, flowers, and the ocean. And people who are passionate about what they do— they always give me energy.

Motivation: My family history and their work ethic keeps me motivated. My life has been full of supportive people and I'm determined to make them proud. I can get very meditative about doing my job. I believe there is power in acting with intention, from the smallest to the largest gesture. One painted highlight, when done with love and intention, is beyond beautiful.

Motto: Take care of business!
