1.   What is your favorite hair trend right now?

The best thing people could do this summer is go shorter! I’ve always been a huge fan of short hairstyles. It looks more sophisticated and chic because it shows off your shoulders and neck. It even opens up the face for a brighter look.

2. What’s your favorite part of working at Julien Farel?

My favorite part of working at Julien Farel is that I get to meet such amazing and interesting people. I consider myself a very lucky person for having the chance to work with such a diverse and international team. I absolutely love my clients and really enjoy meeting new people in the salon.

3. What career advice do you have for hairdressers starting out?

Be passionate. Be patient.  Be creative. And most importantly, be open-minded. Successful people always think outside the box.

4. What is the most popular question your clients ask?

My clients usually ask me how to get rid of frizzy hair, especially now that summer is here. I recommend my clients to use products that are based on natural ingredients like jojoba or linseed oil. In my opinion, natural oils are the best way to eliminate frizz.

5. Who is your style icon?

My style icon is French actress Sophie Marceau. i love that she can embrace any hairstyle  whether short or long and always rock it.

6. Provide one tip to fixing a bad hair day instantly.

Put your hair up in a messy bun using pins. It gives a super cool style and it works for any occasion. It’s the perfect way to turn a bad hair day into a chic look.

7. What is something people don’t know about you?

I wish I could travel around the world and get to see all of the wonderful things it has to offer!  I’m a very open minded person who enjoys experiencing new things. Especially going to new places, meeting new people and learning about new things.

8. What’s your favorite Julien Farel product?

My favorite product is Magnifique Fortifying Hair Serum. I absolutely love it! I have seen such a huge improvement in my hair since I first start using it. I have fine, blonde hair and this product gives it a a lot of body and volume. It also adds shine, which is hard to see in blonde hair. It is truly Magnifique!

9. What are you best known for at Julien Farel?

I am best known for my short haircuts.  From classic to edgy, I find short haircuts to be the most fun and interesting!  I also pioneered the Power Coif at Julien Farel – my signature fast and fabulous updo which is done in only 10-15 minutes and lasts all day and night!  Check out some of my Power Coifs here
