Featured Work

What’s your #1 most booked/requested service?
Definitely the ombré hair color this season.
What advice would you give to beauty/wellness professionals starting out in the industry?
Work hard and practice as much as possible. Find a salon with a great education/apprentice program. Never be comfortable at your skill level no matter how many people love your work, and always look to take your skills & customer service to the next level.
What’s your favorite trend right now? Which trend is your least favorite?
My favorite trend is pastel hair color. My least favorite trend is over contoured makeup because most people are unsure how to blend it well enough :(
Tell us the best (most memorable/craziest/most exciting) thing to happen in your career so far.
I was lead/key hairstylist for Aldred Angelo for their Disney Princesses collection during New York Bridal Week. I got interviewed by bridal magazines and collaborated with some awesome designers. I loved the excitement and amazing people I worked with. It’s the most fun I had in my career thus far!

3 French ‘Dos That Are Très Facile

Dress your tresses like the French in honor of Bastille Day.

The StyleSeat Team is bringing you three tutorials to help you create your own classic French styles in honor of the holiday. Read on for quick and easy steps to create your own French braid, chignon or French twist styles!

French Braid:

What you’ll need: Bobby pins, ponytail holders, comb, hairspray.

1. Part the hair where you would like to see the braid start.

2. Create a french braid that goes over the crown of the head and ends at the opposite ear.

3. Braid the remainder of the length of the hair into a traditional braid.

4. Create a ponytail out of the unbraided section of hair.

5. Wrap the braid around the ponytail and pin.

6. Create a loose bun with the unbraided section of hair.

7. Set the hair with hairspray.


What you’ll need: Curling iron, bobby pins, u-shaped hairpins, ponytail holders, comb, hairspray.

1. For extra volume and hold, lightly set your hair in curls.

2. Separate the front and back of your hair at the ear.

3. Pull the back section of the hair into a low ponytail.

4. Pin the hair in your ponytail up to create a base for your style.

5. Roll the hair under and pin with bobby pins.

6. Fan out the rolled hair and pin the sides with u-shaped hairpins.

7. Use the front sections of your hair to cross over the rolled hair and pin underneath.

8. Set the hair with hairspray.

French Twist:

What you’ll need: Curling iron, bobby pins, u-shaped hairpins, ponytail holders, comb, hairspray.

1. Separate the front section of hair from the back.

2. Lightly set the front section in curls.

3. Tease the top of the back section for extra lift. In order to create a great base, hold and comb straight down.

4. Pull the back section of hair to one side and pin in a zig-zag pattern starting from the bottom.

5. Roll the hair and pin with u-shaped hairpins.

6. Use the front sections of hair to cover any visible pins and create your own style! You can use u-shaped hairpins to loosely hold your curls or pull the hair back for a super sleek look.

7. Set the hair with hairspray.

Wishing everyone a Happy Bastille Day! For more holiday hair inspiration, check out our featured photos page.
