1. When did you start in the Industry?
I have always loved playing with hair since I was young. As a kid I used to organize photo shoots with friends and soon I discovered that I wanted to work with hair.
After finishing high school, I have started a hairdressing course in Den Bosch. During the course, I was working 3 days at a salon and 2 days at school working on my skills.
I have finished the course asap so I could start working at a salon where I can express my creativity. In 2014 I moved to Amsterdam to join The Building team and I knew right-away this is my spot!
Now, 5 years later I am working 5 days a week at the salon with additional jobs for TV and photo shoots. Rachel and I also work together on The Building social media to keep our Instagram feed on-point.
2. Do you have any specialties?
I am an all-rounder, I love to Cut & Color, but styling is what I love most. The best days in the salon are when I work with clients who have to attend big events, weddings, and openings. I’d love to be busy with styling all day.
3. What is your favorite styling trend of the moment?
90’s Glam! Big hair and a French twist!
4. Where do you find your daily inspiration?
I always find my Inspiration from Instagram because it’s very up-to-date. I also love magazines like Vogue, but social media and trends are so fast and up-to-date that I couldn’t wait for another month waiting on the Vogue.
5. Which tools / products can we always find in your kit?
The Mason Pearson iconic brush, Bobby-pins pins, and stitch pins in any color. There is nothing as awful as black bobby-pins in blond hair!
6. What is your signature look?
If you would ask my colleagues they would say a 100% glam, and I do love it! The best thing about my work is that I can make someone look and feel great. It doesn’t really matter what kind of look I am creating, because a bombshell blowout turns any woman into a pretty girl.
7. What advice would you give to new stylists or stylists who aspire to be where you are today?
Follow your heart, you only live once, do what you like and grab all the opportunities with both hands.
