What/Who inspired you to become a stylist?
I grew up with different hair texture than my mother, and siblings and it was actually my Native American grandmother who showed me the beauty of natural hair remedies and rituals to take care of my hair.
What do you love about being a stylist?
I love being a stylist because I love encouraging people to embrace their natural hair no matter the texture. I also love to create styles, rituals and remedies to help heal and revive hair.
Who is your favorite kind of client?
I love everything about hair and have worked with every type of client; rude people are my least favorite people.
What gets you through the tough moments/days?
Keeping God first and thanking him for my talent and gifts everyday. I take a moment of silence each morning and make a prayer over my hands that they should be the best that they can be.
What is your recommended easy hair routine for normal - dry hair? Oily hair and Textured hair?
My recommendation for an everyday hair routine is to shampoo & condition with the Mineral Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner for dry hair; Mineral Treatment Shampoo and Conditioner for Oily hair; Divine Curly Shampoo and Conditioner for curly hair and textured hair. Following this all hair types should apply the Mineral Mud Mask for scalp and hair repair with heat for 15 minutes to restore moisture, heal hair & scalp from the inside out leaving hair and scalp balanced and fresh.
What makes Saphira stand out from other brands?
What makes Saphira so special is the fact that the minerals really work and repair instantly!
