What’s the best lesson you’ve learnt along the way?
If the shoes aren’t comfortable straight away in the store – don’t buy the shoes!

I love watching documentaries, flicking through remix and black magazine. I’m currently listening to Major Lazer, Sia, Flume and Rudimental.

What dream do you still want to fulfil?
To be the best I can be in hairdressing, start making my pieces of jewellery and to own a big beautiful holiday home in Queenstown.

What does being a hairdresser mean to you?
It allow’s me to be creative, be in a fun team environment of different interesting individuals and most importantly making people feel amazing when they walk out of the salon.
