How would you describe yourself in three words?

With TikTok, where do you see it growing into?
I think it's going to be amazing, it's always felt as if it was like a mini YouTube channel. I think transformations are great for Instagram, but TikTok, people want more.
What can we expect from a hair service with you?
Do you typically like to have a lot of people coming in with an exact picture of what they want or do you have a lot of clients that let you have fun with it?
I honestly like pictures, I don't ever do a service without looking at a picture, I just can't. I think it's very seldom that somebody sits in your chair and says, "do whatever you want!"
What would you say that your hair specialty is?
What are some hair products that you personally use that you typically recommend to your clients?
I mean, if you're blonde, you're going home with Fanola for sure and I've been loving the Nutri Care Serum.
Are you a skincare routine or haircare routine type of girl?
What are some ways that you keep your own hair healthy?
