How did you start in the industry?
I started working in the industry at the age of 16. It wasn't my ambition necessarily because I chose to study economics.
In my final school year, I knew for sure that I wanted to work with my own creativity.
And so I have started orientating towards the creativity with hair, and I went looking for a salon that could make my hairstylist journey possible.
This is where I have started at The Building. At that time, I haven't even started my hairstudy yet, and the salon allowed me to work a couple days during the summer break.
I have started at The Building as a parttime student, and I switched to a full-time student immediately because I knew for sure that this is what I really wanted.
Our dear Annette used to visit us every four weeks to color her grey regrow. Every season we have switched it up from lighter and sometimes darker. Annette was thinking about growing out grey but never did... After a couple of weeks, we had a long talk and we decided to just do it!
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. What are your specialties?
My specialty is styling blow drying. I like to make customers happy with a Nice blow dry, and happy to see them leave the salon with a big smile.
