What is special about the relationships with some of your celebrity clients? The best thing about my relationships with my A-List clients is the privacy and genuine relationship I build.
Do you have any advice on how to build relationships with your clients? I think this is extremely important for building relationships, especially someone you look forward to growing with. You never know who is going through what, mental health is extremely important so I advise everybody to take some time out their day if they can’t just to call someone you care about!
Are you a hip hop fan? Yes, hip hop is a huge part of my life. I just turned 21 so my first favorite childhood artist was Lil Wayne and first concert was Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz.
Do you want to focus on hip hop artists with your talent? Do you feel like you're part of the culture by cutting hair for some of today's hottest artists? I wouldn't say that would be my only focus, but I think we go hand in hand because its something i'm already passionate about and love to be around.
What do you think about then new procedures that show men adding hair after going bald? I think they're amazing! I’m all for anything that adds confidence in the client.
