    THE BUILDING Q&A: Samantha

    1. How did you start in the industry?

    When I was 15 years old, I wanted to work and learn at a salon, and so i went searching for the salon to get my start. One of the first salons that I've approached invited me for an interview. And up until today, that's how I have enrolled in the industry.


    Everybody starts with their own new year's resolutions such as more exercising, healthier diet, and less alcohol.

    If you think about being kind to yourself, we most likely think about the inside as our mental health. But the outside needs some extra attention too! Especially in the cold winter days. Because of the cold temperatures and dry air with the lack of humid, the cold winter may sensitizes the scalp and even causes some irritation, itching, and flaking. The side effects of a dry scalp are dull hair that easily breaks and splits.

    Till the moon and back

    Having your hair cut at the position of the moon?

    The moon is known to affect our seas and oceans.
    The attraction of the moon causes a high water level on the side of the earth where the moon stands.
    This observation, also called the "tide" was discovered by Iscaac Newton.

    THE Building Q&A: Chanel SEN

    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.


    1. How did you get your start in the industry?

    I started at The Building when I was 16 years old and then developed as a hairstylist.

    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.


    1. How did you get your start in the industry?

    At the age of 15 I started working in a inspiring salon. I developed my passion for hair,and especially color. At the age of 21 I started working for myself.

    2. What advice would you give to new stylists or stylists who aspire to be where you are today?

    Many people ask me what my goal in life is , but I have never had one. I tackle the things that come by and that make me feel good. I always live in the moment and am curious what the world has to offer me. As advice I want to say that you certainly have to work hard, but also enjoy it, if you work hard and enjoy it, success will come to you.


    1. How did you get your start in the industry?

    I've been working with hair since my childhood, it's my biggest passion. At the age of 18, Estella co owner of the building called my school if I wanted to do an internship at The Building, now 5 years later I am a salon manager & color specialist.

    2. What advice would you give to new stylists or stylists who aspire to be where you are today?

    It sounds very cliché but follow your heart and do what makes you happy. I knew from the start of hairdressing training that color is my thing, I put all the effort and energy into the color theory and wanted to know everything about it and tryed almost everything out.
