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!
