What made you choose this career?
I’ve always loved anything art related, and being able to use my creativity within a career was always something I wanted to pursue. I also love making people feel good about themselves. That’s why hairstyling seemed like a perfect fit for me.
What program are you in/when did you start?
I am in the part-time hairstylist program and I started in April of 2021.
What’s the most valuable thing you have taken away from The Style Academy?
There’s nothing, in particular, that’s more valuable than anything else I’ve taken away. The staff and the educators each have a plethora of valuable skills and techniques to teach and every day I’m learning something new.
What keeps you motivated to push forward?
My partner, my family and my friends are all huge motivators for me. I also am my own biggest motivator and I’m striving to better myself and continue to grow as a person.
Who has been your biggest inspiration and why (in or outside of the industry)?
My partner is my biggest inspiration, he’s really the reason I decided to take the leap into the hair industry. He’s a motivated, hardworking and extremely talented hairstylist who’s been in the industry for over a decade. Seeing him succeed at something he loves to do inspires me every single day.
What are your favourite services to offer?
I came into the school thinking barbering was what I wanted to do but as I’ve progressed through the program, cutting, coloring, and designing women’s hair has won my heart and attention. You get to be so creative and there’s endless possibilities to what you and your clients can come up with.
