I can take nothing and make it into the most beautiful creation you have ever seen. You can come to me with an idea and with very little study's I can bring your vision to life.
Amber, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Hair Stylist?
I started as a hairstylist by watching my mother every day with her clients. She would have me help her out with her clients once she saw I was interested. And that's how I got into doing hair. My dream is to become a celebrity stylist like my favourite. If names (Tokyo styles, Alonzo Arnold, and Anthony cuts ) I also one day would love to become a hair model.
Who is your inspiration in life Amber? How do you keep inspired?
My inspiration in life is my family. I see them, and I want them to live an effortless life. My beautiful son and daughter are getting bigger, and I want to show them if you want anything in life you can have just that as long as you believe in yourself 100% and work hard at it.
We all make mistakes Amber; we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Hair Stylist; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.
I do own my brand, and I am in a solo business at the moment, so I don't have any problems working with colleagues.
Amber, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Hair Stylist, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?
The good thing about being a home stylist is you don't have that long, tedious shop waiting time. I schedule my clients one by one, so I can take my time and give them all the undivided attention they need.
Please tell us, Amber, about a time you had to be very strategic to meet all your top priorities as a Hair Stylist?
Honestly, every day for me is strategic. I have to literally plan out each day as I not only am a hairstylist, but I also work for another great company Amtrak, I am a wife, a mother, I have a website to run, I have chores to do, cooking etc. so honestly it's all about prioritizing and writing stuff down. I have a holy black book that keeps my life in order.
Amber, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.
Sure, sometimes you get clients who don't necessarily agree with what you think is right for there hair. You have to let them know what will look right in the outcome or what would be the healthiest way to style there hair. Then once they let you do your job than 99% of the time the love the outcome.
Amber, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Hair Stylist. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you just want to share with everyone. What is it and why?
I remember the actress Countess Vaughn was in Instagram looking for a hairstylist for her tv show and music video. And as I was sending my photos I thought out of all her followers on Instagram she would never choose me, and she did!!! She will never know how honoured I was at that moment and how she opened my eyes to see I could do anything.
Amber, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?
I am the type of person that likes to try crazy things rather it be a crazy colour or cut. So I would say doing vibrant colours has been a crazy cr, massive leap for me. And it always turns out good, and everyone loves it.
What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Hair Stylist?
I would say don't limit yourself. A lot of stylists I see today, even my favourites it seems like they only do one type of style. I would say stand out be different be that hairstylist someone can come to and can tell you they want a certain style and you can deliver. Expand your skills.
Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state what type of collaboration you are looking for?
I would love to collaborate with some amazing photographers to shoot me in my work. I would also love to collaborate one day with my favourite hairstylist and work together.
