    A lot of people just see these beautiful pictures, and they have no idea that blonde is not just a color, it's a commitment. It's a lifestyle. 

    If you find a good stylist who is patient, and can maintain the integrity of the hair, you can absolutely have blonde hair. 

    When people say I want to be blonde, Okay, awesome. Now what? It's all about figuring out what works for their lifestyle, their budget, and their upkeep. Communication is so important.

    I'm guaranteed to go to bed and wake up with one person; me, myself and I. So if I can look at myself every night and morning, and be like, you're doing okay! That is all that matters.

    As a stylist, I want to make sure that I'm doing everything on my end to ensure that beautiful color that you walk out with, is the color you keep, until the next time you see me.

    If you give a low maintenance person high maintenance hair, it doesn't matter if it's the most beautiful hair I've ever done in my whole life, they are going to be unhappy.
