North American Trend Vision Awards is at the heart and soul of what we live for… Every year we wait to see the Top 25 semi-finalists and then the finalists leading their models down the runway.  We can’t help but get excited as we think back to our very first NATVA and how it helped shape our futures.

Tell us about the moment you knew that one day you would be a hair stylist?

When I would get a haircut, I’d sit in the chair and be so mesmerized by the person cutting my hair and I saw myself doing it.

 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I see myself being a more experienced stylist, and more hungry to learn.

 

How does competing help you as an artist?

For one , it’s get you out of your comfort zone, it helps you to be more confident, and you learn from other people.

What traumatic hairstyle have you been guilty of rocking?

Back when I was younger , I would slick my bangs down to the right me put so much gel and hairspray in my hair to give me the wet look. Lol

 

I knew I was a Hair Nerd when…

On my down time, I would practice new braids on my mannequin’s hair while my boyfriend was asking me to spend time with me. Lol
