What do you love about the hair industry?
I love how the hair industry is constantly changing and there's always new inspirations to be found. It's also full of fun and creative people.
Reasons for getting into the hair industry?
I was sixteen when I started doing hair. It was the first time I found something that I actually excelled at. Hair turned into my passion, which is why I work so hard to be the best version of myself.
Words that describe your professional style?
I create styles that anyone can manage at home. That way, clients can look their best everyday, not just when they leave the salon.
What is your source of inspiration?
Traveling the world and visiting different cultures is very inspiring. The various architectural designs, landscapes, local people, and cuisines all influence my work.
What is your greatest professional accomplishment?
In the 90s, I toured in the UK with a group of students doing hair competitions. We won the Yorkshire and Lancashire awards two years in a row. In 1995, I won the Irish championship and dedicated it to my mom, who's from Ireland.
Favorite Celebrity Style?
David Beckham. From his hair to clothes, he is constantly changing his style and always looks great.
Which hair products do you love and why?
My favorite products are:
- Surf Foam Spray because of its diversity, root lift, beachy texture, and freedom.
- Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Family! The line delivers soft hair and protects from heat and UV rays.
- While You Sleep Masque because it reverses the appearance of damaged hair to a silky, smooth look all overnight.
Happy New Years from all of us at DK Hair!
