Who’s your current style icon? Iris Apfel…. an accidental icon. True to her own, this woman wears what she wants and is unapologetic about it. An inspiration at 96! However I appreciate a lot of people’s individual styles. Working on smith Street is where I see individuality. That’s inspiring.

Early bird or night owl? Depends on how many wines I’ve had the night before…

You’ll see me in the salon doing….? Everything! Hairdressing is as creative as you make it. I think it’s more interesting to push and grow yourself and your clients out of your comfort zones.
