Q. If you could style anyone for the Kentucky Derby, who would you choose & why?
A. Jennifer Lawrence. She’s a Kentucky girl and has great hair. Plus, she’s so funny and vivacious that she’d be a great person to work on.
Q. What’s the best part of being a stylist, and particularly working at Blades?
A. Every day at Blades is enjoyable, and I enjoy seeing my guests. Being a stylist is exciting because there is always a challenge.
Q. How do you stay inspired and creative?
A. Hair shows are always the best, but we have artists that come in to teach us new techniques regularly.
Q. What are your top product picks for spring/summer 2016?
A. With the humidity in KY a Keratin Treatment is where it’s at to keep the frizz at bay! I have a few favorites, but every person is different. I like to create a formula that suits each individual.
Q. What’s your favorite quote or saying about beauty?
A. “Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.That, or Kick-ass red lipsticks.” – Gwyneth Paltrow
