Hair tips – It’s very important to deep condition hair. It nourishes and heals hair of damages caused by the everyday heat and chemical usage. It also restores shine to your hair.

How long have you been doing hair?
I’ve been doing hair as a hobby for about 20 years and professionally for only two years.

How did you learn how to do all the amazing styles you do?
I’m self taught. I’ve always had a passion for braiding. I would braid my dolls hair when I was a little girl. As I got older, I would braid my friends hair, sisters, basically anyone standing next to me…lol. Now, I have my beautiful princess, Angelina.

You seem so passionate about what you do. When did you know that hair styling was your passion?
Two years ago, my boyfriend and photographer, David Pacheco, observed me doing hair. He convinced me to begin doing it professionally. His company, Pro Found Studios, alongside his partner, Robert Covarrubias, gave me my first gig. I took off from there.
