Stylist and Colour Technician
Sagittarius. Although I am somewhat sceptical of zodiac signs, some of the characteristics suggest sagittarians are creative, intuitive, optimistic, inquisitive, and have the need to grow and learn. I feel these traits resonate with me.
I love making people feel good about themselves. Hair is such a strong asset, and if not maintained can become a liability. I thrive on the happiness people get when they are satisfied with the service. I love the dramatic transformation hair can have on someone’s image and self confidence. Finally, I love the attention to detail and technicality behind both colour and cutting.
What makes you laugh?
Puns, people not taking themselves too seriously and animal videos.
Your ultimate creative influence?
I suppose I don’t have one definitive creative influence. I view hairdressing as art and like most artists, I draw on many images, people and ideas to evoke an energy. I like to follow stylists who can bring energy and give life to hair. To name a few: Vidal Sassoon, Tracey Cunningham, Ricardo Dinis, Michael Black and Antionette Beenders.
Mediterranean cuisine. Anything you would find on an antipasta platter – cheese, cured meets, olives, pickles YUM!
Fave holiday destination?
Although I haven’t travelled much yet, I do love the snow. I would love to go to Japan one day to ski!
Opera and classical music.
Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface, Audrey Hepburn, Iris Apfel, Georgia Fowler and Barbara Monaghan.
What I love most about Salon Yazbek is?
The warm energy of the salon. Everyone is welcoming and down to earth. I love to learn and this salon invites training and growth. Plus, we have a rocking team! Everyone is so lovely and genuine – I feel so blessed being a part of such a great team!
