“In an industry where things are always evolving and improving, it's important to identify your niche and stay current. Find what you are skilled at and practice, practice, practice. I can't stress enough how important it is to love what you do and therefore, always stay up to date with industry trends and master classics. Don't count yourself our of the game! You don't need 10 years in the industry to make a significant change, to be noticed or to apply to a hair competition. Trust your skills and apply yourself even when you don’t feel “qualified”. Lastly, always be proud of your work!
