What do you love most about your job as a Color&Co colorist?
I love meeting new people! We get to talk to so many different people from all over the country that I am becoming a pro at identifying everyone’s accents.
How do you customize your customer’s formulation to give them exactly the color they want?
I customize my customer’s formulas by taking into consideration their needs. I determine the best and easiest way for them to achieve their hair goals at home, then give them as many tips and tricks for their application as I can to help them.
Favorite Color&Co product, and why?
I LOVE the Infuse Replenishing Conditioner. It makes my hair so soft and shiny. I have naturally curly hair and it works great with my curls.
What would you say is the most common hair color issue customers face with at home color?
Not receiving the best gray coverage. I try to stress to all my customers that gray hair is its own beast. It can be resistant, coarse, super fine, patchy etc. The best way to get the best coverage is to understand the type of gray hair you have and understand how to get the coverage you are looking for.
What’s your favorite pro-tip to offer customers during a consultation?
I love giving application tips, specifically root shadow tips, for my customers who have grown out highlights and are trying to blend their roots.
How long have you been a hairstylist? What drew you here?
I have been in the industry for 13 years (wow). I have worked both behind the chair and as a “kitchen beautician.” I think it’s great to have an option for people who prefer to do their hair at home and to be able to provide a salon quality product for them.
