My hair right now: Faux-hawk shag—1980s rock and roll influenced by David Bowie and Duran Duran.
The celeb I would most like to makeover: Jessica Alba. I’d like to see her with deeper, richer tones that are more flattering to her complexion.
My favorite tool: My Super Solano hair dryer.
The best thing about my job is: I have the opportunity to make people look beautiful.
The best job I ever had as a hairdresser: Opening my salon as a working stylist and launching my product line WEN.
My secret weapon: Turning negative occasions into something positive.
If I hadn’t become a hairdresser I would have: Been a fashion designer.
My perfect day involves: Hiking, yoga, pilates, swimming, playing with the puppies and working on my product line.
Most people would be surprised to learn that: I shoot all my own artwork for the WEN products and models for my brochures.
My secret talent: I can take anything simple from my refrigerator and pantry and cook a gourmet meal.
I became a hairdresser because: I started off as a photographer, and saw that the key elements—make-up and hair—did not always complement each other, so it naturally encouraged me to take the next step and learn how to do hair, which is where I found my true calling.
