How many years experience in the industry?
What got you started in the spa, salon or wellness industry? When was this?
I fell into the industry after getting my associates degree in Seattle in 2002 and decided to learn a trade since I didn’t know what degree to pursue and fell in love!!! I feel so blessed to have a career that I love every single day, hairstyling is not work to me!!!
Please give me one fitness tip:
Drink plenty of water!!!
What is your personal favorite spa or salon therapy and where and when you indulge in it.
Grace Beauty in Paia – Laura Taliaferro’s collagen infusion facial. I do a series of 4 at least once a year!
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 20 something:
Hit the shower before and after you go in the ocean! Hair is porous like a sponge, so if you get your hair full of fresh water first, it will absorb less salt water and prevent damage.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 30 (the new 20):
Use a combination of highlighting and lowlighting to blend your grey as it starts to come in as opposed to an all-over color. The lowlights will cover your grey and the highlights will blend them. You’ll get WAY more time out of your color!
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 40 something (I know we stopped counting a decade ago):
Use a color safe shampoo to keep your hair color fresh, or if you don’t color your hair and have grey use a violet or blue shampoo to eliminate brassiness or the green tinge you get from chlorine.
Best skin advice, spa or salon treatment and fave product for a 50 and up:
Keep getting your hair trimmed, it really is the best way to get it to grow. Once breakage starts, you’re going to lose much more length than you would with a trim on a regular basis.
Please name your most popular retail item and what it does.
Kevin.Murphy born again treatment. Hands down the most efficient product I’ve ever used to rebuild the structure of hair.
