Q: When did you first learn that you had this amazing talent?
I started doing lashes while I was working as a celebrity makeup artist. During the slower periods I would take lash clients to make ends meet. I quickly had to give up doing makeup altogether as my lash clientele started booming.
Q: What has been the most exciting moment in your career?
The most exciting moment was my appearance on ABC'S hit show "Shark Tank." I'm a fan of the show. to be able to pitch my business in front of the Sharks was an amazing opportunity. I will never forget that moment.
Q:What are your beauty projections for this season?
I project the return of bushy brows! Eyebrow extensions are becoming increasingly popular and ladies are asking me for brows reminiscent of Brooke Shields in the 80's.
Q: You’ve been #Indiqued! Tell us about your experience working with the Indique Hair brand?
I have worn Indique Hair for some time. When I think of quality hair extensions Indique Hair is the name that comes to mind.
Q: What advice do you have for someone aspiring in your field?
I suggest doing research. Be curious. Find out as much as you can about the industry then get into a beauty school to become a licensed cosmetologist or esthetician. Taking a lash certification class by a reputable company or instructor is also highly recommended.
Q:What have been some of the barriers you’ve faced in this industry?
As an entrepreneur there are always problems that arise on a daily basis. I have learned to become more comfortable with being uncomfortable. It always seems to work out one way or another.
Q: What is a staple beauty item that we should all have?
Every woman should have a signature scent. Carry a rollerball of your favorite fragrance in your makeup bag for a quick refresher. If you have done a good job of choosing a perfume that compliments you, you'll spend all day entertaining new suitors.
