When did you realise you wanted to be a hairdresser?I was always creative growing up. I loved to paint, sew and do crafts and pottery. However, in high school my goal was to become a real estate agent. It wasn’t until I was kicked out of my legal studies class for “talking too much” and was forced to take a hairdressing class to fill the spot on my timetable that I realised I had so much passion not only in developing my creativity but also in making people feel special and appreciated.
Favourite hair trend for 2014?Braided upstyles and Splashlights throughout colour.
What matters to you most as a hairdresser?The gratitude and sincere happiness I get from my clients!
What advice would you give an aspiring hairdresser?Hairdressing is not always a glamorous career but it’s one that will leave you feeling incredibly accomplished if you stick it out and work hard to infinitely better yourself.
Who is your ultimate style icon? I love Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepole. Her style is classic and lady-like with a bit of an edge.
What is your favourite colour?Red is my favourite because it’s racey and passionate! Despite it’s high maintenance, platinum blonde is my favourite hair colour!
Favourite fashion magazine?Cosmopolitan.
Favourite holiday destination?I love Nah Trang, Vietnam for its beaches, and Mykonos, Greece for its wild party atmosphere! My next big holiday will be through the USA – I think I will enjoy Las Vegas!
If you could trade place with any person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?I would trade places with Rihanna’s hairstylist, Ursula Stephen. Rhianna always has a fun, rockstar hairdo and I think she would be crazy and exciting to work for!
Favourite song?I have a music addiction so my favourite song changes every week! But you can’t skip a classic sing-along song like Wonderwall – Oasis.
