Three highlights of your career:

  2. Joining TONI&GUY in Dallas, TX after immigrating to the USA in 1991
  3. Being made co-President of TONI&GUY.

Beauty legend you respect: Kyara Mascolo is the woman I most admire and respect for her achievement in the beauty industry.  Kyara was the mastermind behind the Bed Head line and the evolution of TIGI products into a global brand.  Her ability to create unique products, packaging and marketing campaigns catapulted the company to a household name known the world over.

Choose beauty because: It presents endless opportunities for motivated individuals.  After mastering the skills necessary to receive a license, you will always be able to find work. Hairdressing is one of the few professions that isn’t seasonal, can’t be outsourced or replaced by computers!  In today’s economic climate more and more people are enrolling in our academies in order to find the stability hairdressing provides.

Quote or mantra: If you always do what you’ve always done, you will always have what you have already got!
