And as promised, a second Roots Personalities this week! The secret girl I was talking about is Megan Griffiths! I'm sure a lot of you see her as your stylist, and those that don't at least know of her. She's been with Roots a looonnnng time and she's a very very talented young lady.
I LOVE the positive vibrant energy of the salon. We are a little (always growing) dysfunctional family... have been very fortunate to work with such creative and beautiful people for the past six years!
My VERY first experience with styling came when I was about 5 years old. I had a yellow plastic breifcase that I filled with various tools (kitchen sheers, nail scissors, hairbrush etc...) and went by the name "Shirley the hairdresser"!!! My dad paid me 25 cents to trim his eyebrows!!! Hahahaha.Down the road a while when I was in middle school I met Mike & Ida at the salon on Church Street in Comox and was recruited as a hair model!!! I fell in LOVE with the "cool" factor!!! The industry was calling my name... everything just seemed to fit. Mike & Ida have served as amazing mentors sharing their skills an knowledge over the years... shaping me into the stylist I am today ;)
I am NEVER satisfied to live within preset perameters. I love to learn and will always strive to grow from new experiences along the way. Adventure runs in my blood...I would take a spin at any or ALL the above! A few things on my career list; work backstage at NY Fashion Week, compete and win a major national/ international stylist competition,have my work published, climb Mt. Everest! HA... I could go on and ON! Who knows what tomorrow will bring...
I think my ability to interact with people is one of my greatest strengths. I also have a TONNE of energy which can be both a great strength AND weakness depending on the situation. My endless perfectionism in most everything that I do has been a struggle throughout my life to date. Fortunately...my clients don't seem to mind that about me ;)
Love. Acceptance. Humility. Things we can all work on.
I love music... however, I wouldn't say I have ever really dreamt about concerts. I like live music in small intimate venues. The last concert I really wanted to see was in Australia, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. My friend Cian introduced me to the band when I first arrived in Sydney and we tried (and failed miserably) to scrape up cash to go when they were touring Oz last March. I would stillLOVE to see that show!!
Wheatgrass shot. To keep me strong and healthy.
What do you call two turtles mating...??? SLOW POKE!!! Hahahaha.
Travel section....dreaming about my next adventure! It's very possible I might also be in the food isle drooling over colourful pictures of beautiful fresh cooking! I LOVE FOOD!
Doubled diagonal forward slices....translation: zebra stipe highlights.
Candy. CANDY. CANDY!!!
No? Well....I'm sure theres LOTS. Just cant think of anything this second.
Incompetence. I HATE not being able to do things...
All PEOPLE....Too many to LIST!!!
Biologist, lawyer, environmental engeneer, cabinet maker...
I'm loving softness and harmonious "pretty" with hair colour...even in terms of fashion shades, bright and bold doesnt have to look tacky! I love EVERYTHING with texture, movement, bounce...never TOO polished. I like combining a bit of "old school" flavor into my special occasion styling with glamorous s-waves, pincurls and soft curling iron sets.
I really don't like spitting... EWWWW!
