Whose your favorite person that you’ve ever styled? Who do you dream of styling?
Paris Hilton by far, she’s so humble and down to earth. I would love to style Dawn Richard. She’s my favorite underground artist right now making waves on the charts and is the first black woman to do this. I would love to have her in my chair and pick her brain.

What inspired you to become a hairstylist?
I was the black sheep of the family and dropped out of high school and partied a lot. I went out one night and saw a hair show at a night club and was amazed. I didnt want to do the 9-5 job in a cubicle and wanted to do something more creative and hoped right in!

What is it like to work for an on demand beauty company like GLAMSQUAD?
Its honestly amazing! We’re kind of doing something breaking ground in the beauty industry. Everything else is now coming to you, food, clothes etc — to bring this concept to someones front door is amazing. Its’ great for artists who are looking for something different outside of a salon and I’m really grateful to be a part of a company like this making waves.

Since we’re in Miami, whats the best tip for humidity?
I have two! My first one is to work with your natural hair texture, especially for all my curly girls out there. The second one is to call GLAMSQUAD of course — we’re here for you! We educate our clients on whats great for hair etc. and learning to work with humidity and not against it.

What do you do when you’re not styling?
I’m a brand ambassador on Instagram and love to longboard on the boardwalk at the beach. I cook 5 days a week and do triple threat fitness in the Wynwood Cross Fit gym.
