What’s Your Morning Like?
My ideal way to start the day is by working out. I love being able to go to a class before work. It wakes me up and helps me tackle a long day. Then I Instagram a hair post, and read Who What Wear and Byrdie. For breakfast, I like to have something I can take with my on the go, so a pressed juice or coconut milk with some fruit is usually my go-to. In the mornings, I use Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy Strong Lengths Nourishing shampoo and conditioner and Shiffa Invigorating Hair Oil. I like to use Hourglass eyeliner and wear Kai Fragrances perfume. It generally takes me 30 to 45 minutes to get out the door.

Describe A Typical Day At Work
I’m blessed to do what I love with the people I love, so it never feels like work. I get to be around creative people that inspire me. For lunch, there is usually catering at whatever job I’m on, but if there isn’t I usually keep snacks like almonds on me or I’ll have a Be Well by Dr. Lipman shake! On the drive home, I make any calls that I need to and catch up on emails.

What Do You Do To Unwind After A Long Day?
Since I don’t cook, I grab dinner somewhere with friends or my fiancé. I love eating at Escuela in LA and Bar Pitti in NYC. I don’t drink alcohol, so I’m a bit boring! My schedule tends to be all over the place, so I like to get as much rest as possible. Lately, I’ve been getting to sleep around 11 p.m. and I love it!

Any New Products Your Excited About?
I’m loving the products from Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy. They nourish hair at the scalp, which I think so many people neglect. The Intense Hydration line is my favorite.

Are There Any Surprising Steps In Your Beauty Routine?
Even though I’m a hairstylist, I usually don’t do my own hair. I love just letting it dry naturally.

What Would We Be Surprised To Know About You?
I’ve been known to keep a few Werther’s Originals and Gummy Bears in my bag!
