“The title of my collection is “Let Them Eat Cake.” I am very inspired by the women in history. After visiting the Palace of Versailles one summer in my teens, I was immediately entranced. I loved the architecture, beauty, and overall feeling that was there. I have always loved Marie Antoinette so the iconic pouf seemed like the perfect inspiration.”
“I love working on hair. I love that I can be as creative with it as my imagination. I love that there’s always something new to learn. New styles, color, cut its limitless. I love to make people happy, smile and give them the exact look what they want. That’s the best part of this industry.”

“My entry for this year was inspired originally by the astrological fire signs, but, as these things do, my plans changed a little bit. I started working on the pieces and wasn’t pleased with where they were headed. I then became inspired by my recent coming of self. Finding my passion in hair gave me a fire that I never had before and I wanted to translate that into my pieces and so they then became about power. I view them as ‘Entities of Power’ if you will, that stand for the inner power and fire.”
“The tourmaline crystal is what inspired me on my collection. I wanted to bring to life the emotional feelings that crystals bring to me into hair using geometrical shapes and hues of the tourmaline crystals.”
“One of the challenges I experienced was keeping the structure of each individual color while still maintaining a vibrant, cohesive look. I learned that my vision could seem easy to me but it’s going to take more work than what meets the eye. Overall, my skills with color were strengthened through this experience.”
