How long have you been living The Cut Life? — I started my cut life journey back in 2014 towards the end of the year. I guess you can say I was going through a lot of changes and I’m always changing or coloring my hair, So one day I just did the big chop and I’ve been in love with pixie cuts ever since.
What are your go-to hair essentials for maintaining your cut & style? — My number one is always keeping my hair wrapped at night. I honestly don’t have to use many hair products because of the texture of my hair. I use a liquid leave in setting conditioner while my hair is wet, part my hair how I want it to be styled and wrap it immediately. I rarely use heat on my hair the conditioner lays my hair down completely so heat isn’t needed.
What are your beauty and makeup must have products? — I’m definitely a makeup lover, wherever I go my makeup go’s lol. My favorite foundation is from NARS they have an amazing matte liquid foundation, very light on your face and it lasts for hours and not much is needed for coverage. I also have to have concealer, bronzer, shimmer, eyebrow pencil and mascara. All of those products I get are from MAC, all of my brushed and sponges are from Ulta.
What is your current occupation and what are your career goals and aspirations? — I currently work at a Cadillac dealership as a receptionist, I work full time and I’m a lead receptionist. My goal is to finish up real estate school and have my own business, I also want to get into interior design and fashion. I love to always be fashionable, there won’t be a time you see me and I’m not dressed up, and I’m also switching my house around and changing the color themes. I won’t be satisfied if I’m just doing one thing or having one goal, I love to keep busy and to always reach for more.
What is a hobby or interest that people would be surprised to know you have? — I would have to say people would be surprised at my love for animals. I love being around them, taking care of them, and my dream job used to be a traveling veterinarian. Animal cruelty breaks my heart and I wish I could take every animal in and care for them and give them the love they deserve. My favorite animals are horses and elephants, elephants are actually my spirit animal.
What quote or piece of advice do you live by? — My piece of advice for myself is always to keep going, to strive to be better, to love myself and to always put my trust in God. I learned to always speak things into existence and to know that better days will always come.
What would you say to a woman who is thinking about cutting her hair for the first time? — I’ve had several women come to me for advice and questions about if they should do it and people always question if I regret it and so forth. My advice is to go for it I can’t tell you how many people told me to not cut my beautiful long curly hair. I could probably count on my fingers on how many people told me to go for it. Don’t let anyone talk you out of it. Cutting my hair had to grow on me of course, but now I’m flourishing with it and its one of my best hair decisions. You’re going to be beautiful I promise you and it’s going to make you feel like a new woman 🙂
