The single shade you use the most: A beige-y blonde demi that I use to control warmth.

Favorite level of developer and why: 10 volume. It maintains the health of the hair yet you can still achieve beautiful highlights with great foil placement.

Favorite color technique: Foil blending. It’s a great way to achieve the look of sun-kissed highlights and to show shape in the hair by really making the ends pop a little more.

Where did you learn color:  I learned a lot of my color education from Wendy Bond, who taught me how to enhance natural shades without looking artificial.

Celeb who most influences hair color: Right now, it’s Gisele Bundchen.

Best shade I ever had on myself:  When it comes to my hair, my philosophy is less is more. I really enjoy being a dark brunette.  It’s the shade I have stuck with for a long time.

My color mentor: I have two. Harry Josh and David Adams.

Favorite color tool: Goldwell color brushes. They are the perfect size and are not too hard or soft. They are the closest thing to paint brushes. I love them!

Favorite color product: I’m using a lot of the Blondor Creme by Wella. It’s so gentle on the hair and you can add it to a highlift color as well for a little extra punch!

My inspiration: I am inspired so much by the people I surround myself with on a daily basis. My family, friends, co-workers, and living in NYC are what inspire me the most.

Best color education I ever attended: One of Beth Minardi’s classes. She has such a great approach to hair color and she is such a solid businesswoman. 

Biggest tip and what I did to receive it: I could never pinpoint my best tip but I will say that bartering with my clients in the fashion industry has paid off!
