ABOUT : WHITNEY’S WORK
What would you like people to know about your work? I strive to ensure my clients are given my full attention, whether it is maintaining their
perfect hairstyle for inviting me to give my opinion on a fresh, new look for them.
Why did you want to be a hair stylist? I love making people feel good about themselves. When I discovered I had a knack for hair in middle school I was
coloring, cutting mine and my friend’s hair. I realized this is something I was good at.. I also always knew about myself
that I am not the type of person to work a desk job. I need to be active and have personable relationships throughout
my work day. Everything about doing hair seemed like the perfect fit for me!
Where did you go to school? Gene Juarez Academy in Seattle, Wa
What are your specialties? I pride myself in knowing that I can accomplish any hair type and hairstyle that is brought to me but if I had to choose
some things I’d say I’m especially skilled in;
long layered cuts
bleach&tone and fashion colors
What do you love most about being a stylist? Clients are the reason I love my work! When they are satisfied that I helped them achieve their own special look, I want that confidence to guide them through whatever they need to do that day! It is an uplifting feeling to do what you love and to help make people feel good about themselves. I also love that during my work I get to talk and meet so many different, unique and amazing people everyday. Makes my day feel like i’m not even at work, just hanging out with awesome people!
What inspires you / What influences your style? We have so many color choices to enhance our look, there are no cookie cutter versions of ourselves out there! Everyone is unique, and that is influential in itself! I want to share that moods can influence your style, and your style can influence your mood!
Favorite Hair Style & Hair Products? I’m not sure I have an actual favorite hairstyle because everyone is different, including their hair so each and every client I work on is given a one of a kind unique hairstyle that fits them and them only. My favorite products to use are clay pomades, oils, sea salt spray and anything to give the hair some texture!
Anything else you’d like to share with your clients? Let creativity roam free. You can be creative and fun while still holding a professional style. You don’t want to be 80 yrs old and saying “I wish I would have…. when I was younger”
