Why did you want to become a hairstylist?
I have always loved creating things and hair is an amazing material to work with. From a very young age, I experimented with my hair and my friends’ hair, and when it was time for me to choose a line of education, I went for hairstyling! Now it’s been almost eight years since I graduated and I’m still loving my job every day.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to connect with people who I would never have had the opportunity to meet outside the salon. Hair is such a big part of your identity! Listening to your clients and being able to give them their dream hair is a wonderful feeling. I’m so grateful that I can make people feel and look their best.
Coming from Sweden and as a former colour educator, blonde hair is definitely where I specialise. I also specialise in creating vivid colours and advanced colouring.
What’s the best advice you can give clients for treating their hair at home?
Over-washing is a big problem as it causes dry hair and a sore scalp. A lot of people are used to washing their hair everyday, but now is the perfect time to break that vicious cycle.
Start by using dry schampoo between washes (my favourite is from Authetic Beauty Concept), but also wear hair up in a sleek bun or wear a hat/head scarf. Brush your hair every night before you go to bed, it moves the natural oils from the scalp to the ends and stimulates the scalp. In a few weeks, your hair won’t get oily after half a day and your scalp will be much happier!
My authentic belief is…
The time in which we’re living is an eye-opening experience for sure, but we can choose to learn and grow from it.
It’s amazing to see people working together, and be creative in solving problems and finding solutions. Also for a workaholic like me, it’s been a valuable lesson in slowing down, connecting with my inner self and enjoying the life that is all around us. When this is over, I think and hope that the world will be a kinder place.
