The North American Hairstyling Awards Haircolor category showcases artists who have an eye for the perfect palette and hair coloring techniques. With hair shaped to complement these creative colors, this category showcases precise placement and purposeful techniques.
What led you to participate in the NAHA Haircolor category?
What really motivated me was taking some time for myself to actually enter a competition. I have spent many years giving back to salon professionals and I decided to invest in myself to help elevate my presence in the industry. I think all stylist should take the time and make the investment in themselves. Regardless of if it places or not it’s still a piece of art that you were responsible for and had full creative control over.

What inspired your 2019 NAHA collection and how did you choose which category to enter?
I can’t say that it was one specific thing. I like to color hair that is simple, bold, and strong. This year I thought I’d try a pattern, but every time I tried I hated it! This seems to be a theme in my creative process. (I always hate it to begin with.) I’m trying to learn how to embrace this. People know me as a colorist, but I like to cut hair just as much.
