Tell us a little about yourself!
I have been in the hair industry since I was 15 years old. I started at Pivot Point Academy for cosmetology school and ended up at Mario Tricoci for 13 years where I got most of my training and education done as a hair color specialist. Outside of my career, I enjoy traveling and getting a good workout in. 🙂
Tell us a little about Lex Labs Hair Studio and how you got started?
Lex Labs Hair Studio started brewing after our favorite time of all, 2020 quarantine. My partner Alexis and I were doing very well as hair colorists at our previous salon we worked for, Mario Tricoci, but we reached a plateau in our career there and we needed change. We always teamed up together from the start of the training and talked on the phone about work every single day before and after working. The subject of going off on our own had been brought up many times.
First week back to work June in 2020, we were looking at studio salon spaces to get the ball rolling. The Salon lofts in Evanston came up on my feed a lot and were brand new. We agreed to it being the perfect location for our clientele. August 2020 we were ready to roll and started Lex Labs Hair Studio! As scary as it was for us both, knowing what could happen, we made it though!
When did you know this is what you wanted to do?
I knew this is what I wanted to do when my big middle eastern family always asked me to do something with their hair (blowdrys, root color touch ups, etc.) they thought because I had a after school job as a shampoo girl, I knew how to do everything. I figured I had potential and should start beauty school and actually get my license. My passion bloomed from there.
What’s the best part of your job?
Seeing a guest leave happy. It’s a blessing to have a gift where I can deliver happiness through my craft.
What advice would you give someone just starting out in your profession?
I see many people who refuse to continue learning because they have been in business for a long time and believe they know it all. A class I highly recommend taking is one about the king, SOCIAL MEDIA.
What do you do for fun in your down time?
On my down time I love to look into what’s in fashion and planning out outfits for upcoming events and seasons.
