COLOR VISION: I believe the most interesting and sought after hair color has textures and layers. If you copy nature and search out the most beautiful thing (ocean, leaves in the fall, a sunset) they all have layers of texture and color that makes the sight of them jaw-dropping, that's what I achieve to create. Let's create a sunset together!
TEXTURED THOUGHTS: When hair is wet (after shampooing) it stretches and does not allow you to sculpt curly hair in its natural form. Curly hair should be cut in the dry and natural state in which you wear it day-to-day and with little to no tension.
Three things I absolutely can not live without: Liquid liner, hugs, laughter.
