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


I started my career with Sassoon in 2014 at our Costa Mesa salon. I originally chose Sassoon because I wanted a challenge, knowing that a spot in the company did not come easily. After my immersion in the culture, I now choose Sassoon because it’s a place driven not only by growth, but by striving towards a higher standard. It’s a place where passion and discipline create something special

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?


It’s hard to choose what I love most about my job because I really do love everything about it. I get to work with inspiring people, I get to make people feel good about themselves, and I get to share my knowledge and ideas with people who want to listen. I get to do all this while doing what I love most - cutting hair

WHAT IS YOUR CAREER HIGHLIGHT TO DATE?


Working for Sassoon brings so many great opportunities and experiences. My most recent highlight was being invited to teach at our London academy for two weeks. I learned so much during my time there and I’m so thankful to the team for having me. An actual dream come true! An honorable mention was one time I was asked to represent the company at an event in Costa Mesa where, for the first time, I was about to cut a model live on stage! Long story short, as soon as I began sectioning my model on stage, Traci Sakosits (Sassoon’s North American Creative Director) jumped on stage and held sections for me while I was cutting hair. Yes, TRACI held sections, for ME!

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?


I’m really inspired by the concept of change. I’m guilty of being a creature of habit, so when something makes me break that, I find it really special

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS?


Passionate, interested, inspired

YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN THREE WORDS?


Loud, understated, evolving

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?


In 5 years, I hope to be a Creative Director, whether it be at one of our salons or academies. I hope to be teaching more, learning more, and making my team proud by carrying on this culture that is Sassoon

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


I started my Sassoon career in 2016.  However, I my Sassoon journey started way before then and, in a way, I feel Sassoon chose me. When I was 11 years old, my grandparents took me to the Sassoon Salon in San Francisco to get a “back-to-school” haircut. That day I was exposed to a world I have never seen before… the coolest people with the best sense of fashion doing the most amazing hair! That day made a huge impact on my life, and from that day forward I wanted to be part of that world

WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?


I love being constantly surrounded by inspiration - whether it be the collection demos and workshops, what our team are creating on the salon floor or the sense of style of the clients and team in the salon

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR CAREER HIGHLIGHT TO DATE?


My career highlight so far was having the privilege of assisting International Creative Director, Mark Hayes and Regional Creative Director Traci Sakosits at our Academy Masterclass

WHAT INSPIRES YOU?


I have always been really influenced by nostalgia.  With music, I am very into New-wave, Disco and Punk which translates into my fashion. I also love photography, particularly instant film and Andy Warhol which is why I love to shoot and document my work on polaroid’s

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN THREE WORDS?


Colorful, devoted, inventive

DESCRIBE YOUR PERSONAL STYLE IN THREE WORDS?


Vintage, grunge, festive

WHERE DO YOU SEE YOURSELF IN 5 YEARS?


I would love to have the opportunity to work in one of our Academies, and in a perfect world the London Academy!
