How does competing help you as an artist?
I feel that competing in anything, it gives you the motivation and inspiration to create greatness. Competing has helped me to expand my ideas and find new ones, however, I love being able to put it all together in a collection. Being new to this industry, I am constantly finding inspiration by other artists, and how there are many opportunities that you can pursue to build your image.
Beyond hair, what other creative outlets do you have?
Aside from hair, I recently found myself dabbling in dance and doing performances. Like creating different hairstyles, dance is a great way to express yourself and gain self-confidence. I love applying myself in different fields of artistic, or active areas to keep myself busy.
