1. Why did you choose to become a hairdresser?

My hairdresser actually inspired me to go down this track.

I studied hairdressing at a private college in 2012 but ended up not enjoying it. Following that, I worked in cooperate for a while and didn’t enjoy that either.

After a few years of self reflection I decided to try hairdressing again and being a client of Lily Jackson first, made me realise it was going to be something that I would love.

  1. How long have you been hairdressing?

2016 is my first year.

  1. What’s the best part of your job?

The people and the friendships I’ve made.

  1. What are you passionate about outside of hairdressing?

I like baking and trying new recipes. I fail a lot, but I always have my friends as Guinea pigs hehe.

  1. What’s the funniest moment you remember from your career?

This probably isn’t funny but but we did get a laugh out of it.

When I was working at Nespresso, a customer had called to complain that her new machine wasn’t working and I was on the receiving end of some nasty comments; after she’d finished I asked if there was water in the water tank… Silence… The line drops and we never heard back from her.

  1. Do you have any career highlights you’d like to mention?

I got a chance to work behind the scenes of The Great Gatsby which was fun.

  1. What’s your favourite music at the moment?

I go through stages but I’ve been listening to the top 50 Neatherlands on Spotify recently.

We have a family dog named Pizza and a cat which was rescued from RSPCA, called Skrinkles, for my friend on his birthday but we share custody of her.

 

  1. What the question you get asked the most?

I get asked a lot of IT questions and my first response is “have you tried restarting the device”, 9 out of 10 times it actually works.

  1. Why did you choose Lily Jackson Hair & Makeup?

I used to love the vibe coming to the salon as a client and now I get to experience it everyday. I know how passionate everyone is at Lily Jackson and being there I get to learn from the best.
