Q: Tell us a little about your professional credentials…
A: Studying with VidalSassoonAcademyfor the past 15 consecutive yrs has been my greatest achievement and I am so proud. I have been blessed with various professional experiences, from being mentioned in magazines, newspapers, appearing on morning talk shows, to judging beauty pageants. I was also honored to help with the back stage “Project Runway” kick off party. I would have to say out of all, appearing on Vidal Sassoon’s Reality Show “Making the Cut” was a truly honorable experience.

Q: What is your favorite part of being a stylist for the Salon at PGA National? Is it different working at a spa salon than it is a stand alone salon?
A: The Spa & Salon at the PGA National Resort is a little different. I have to admit it offers me more focus on achieving a more polished level of customer service. It’s a good feeling!
Q: What are some general hair care tips that you feel are most important?
A: Some important tips I’d like to recommend to all of our clients is always have a “leave in” conditioner handy, must maintain moisture on the ends for better manageability. If you have long hair, leave a wide tooth comb in your shower to comb-thru conditioner.
Q: How often do you feel individuals should shampoo their hair?
A: Shampoo your hair at “least” every other day or maybe longer between washings (depending on the individual) if you can stand it. Washing everyday may lead to dryness.
Q: Do you feel it is important to spend extra on hair care products or can regular drugstore products suffice?
A: Spending a little extra on hair products is important. I would rather see clients using products that are recommended by professionals rather then taking something off the shelves without knowing what it’s for.
Q: What is the one good investment a girl or guy should make when it comes to their hair?
A: The one good investment when it comes to your hair is finding a good & educated hairdresser that understands your needs. It’s your image; make it your life 🙂
