I looking forward to expanding my network. I learn so much from my peers, and I’m excited to see what everyone is up to.

Who are you going to be stalking?

Truthfully, I don’t know yet. Probably one of the barbers? Maybe the mizutani shears people…

So many things! Pomades, shears, clippers, weird trinkets and do-dads.

What are the top three things you are looking forward to at ISSE Long Beach 2015?

1. The hairbrained educational event.
2. Bonding with my TEAM of talented stylists and watching them experience their first Hair show.
3. Bringing back new techniques and business practices to share with my guests.

Who are you going to be stalking?

The Hair Nerds ❤️(Cheers to you!)

Your biggest “must get” on the show floor?

Dry haircutting education and Color education. Also hoping some educational love will be on the educational roster for naturally curly girls. I wish more love was shown to the 67% of the population. I mean embracing the curls not shoving straighteners or keratin treatments down our throats.
