BORN AND RAISED: I am straight out of hell, but I reside in Denver.

CELEB I WOULD LIKE TO MAKEOVER: Nancy Grace, although her hair is only the beginning.

FAVORITE ITEM IN WARDROBE: Tom Ford for Gucci motorcross jacket in butterscotch leather.

FAVORITE TOOL: Give me a teasing comb, and some strong hairspray, and I can stir some serious trouble.

THE BEST THING ABOUT MY JOB: I love the variety my career affords me: shows, shoots, clients, teaching, consulting—it’s quite intoxicating.

IF I HADN’T BECOME A HAIRDRESSER I WOULD HAVE: I fantasize about being a prolific and provocative avant garde architect, visual artist or controversial movie director.


I BECAME A HAIRDRESSER BECAUSE: I love doing hair more than I love my first Prada backpack—and that’s a big deal!
