Years in the industry:
Stylist Level:
Advanced, Master Stylist and In-Salon Educator
Lived-in blondes, brunettes & "Brondes". I love cutting Bobs, doing tape-in extensions and transitioning anyone ready to embrace their natural "sparkle"..... that is their natural grey, salt & pepper... what ever you want to call it.
Why Mooi?
MOOI HAIR has a great supportive team environment. Personal and professional growth is strongly encouraged through education opportunities, either in-salon or off-site. We also have a ton of Fun, while creating beautiful hair.
Why did you choose this industry?
I actually did not choose this industry, it chose me.....as it turns out, it came naturally and I developed a strong passion for my craft.
Who / What is your professional Inspiration?
Currently, I pull a lot of my inspiration from Carly Zanoni @the.blonde.chronicals. I am also inspired by my fellow co-workers... They are Amazing Artists!
Favourite Go-to product:
It is truly difficult to pick just one. It depends on what I am doing. I love Bumble & Bumble products...with fine hair I may use "All Style" to blow dry or with shorter hair the "Styling Cream".
What are your major accomplishments in life / business?
Definitely my Kids! I am a super proud Mom of 2 wonderful, beautiful young adults. I must have done something right...Right? Professionally it would have to be my In-Salon Educating. I have created education programs for training from the ground up, that I am very proud of. I have facilitated many classes for Associates and New Talent Stylists alike. Working with them to build their confidence to take on guests, on their own.
Way too many to list... Where do I begin? I am a Red Seal Certified Hair stylist, I have acquired my Provincial Instructor Diploma. Participated in countless L’Oreal classes, Colour Keys and Colour Change. Suki’s, American Crew Cutting, KMS Styling, Bumble & Bumble, Kerastase, Davines, Pivot Point & Easihair Pro Extensions......just to name a few.
When you are not behind the chair you are likely...
Puttering around the house, working on turning my backyard into a welcoming and relaxing oasis....or.... passing you on my motorcycle.
Something few people know about you...
I ride a CBR650R Sport Bike...I may or may not have a need for speed!
Favourite Quote or Saying:
Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting " Holy S***, What a Ride!" ~ Mavis Leyrer
What does Beauty mean to you?
To me, beauty comes from the inside. It's not the physical attribute of being beautiful according to societal or Hollywood standards...it's being kind, respectful, showing compassion, all the good things, to your fellow human beings. It's not judging someone based on what you see.
