Dean & Co-Founder
What inspires you to teach or work in the hair specific education?
Hair is an exciting career path that combines the arts, sciences, technology, social intelligence, psychology, customer service, business and fashion.
Almost every human experience or milestone starts with a visit to the hair salon or barbershop. It is the definitive moment where you transition into an improved version of yourself both physically and mentally.
In the hands of a great hairstylist or barber, you can reaffirm your beauty and identity.
Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci who once said - "learn to see the world, realize that everything is connected" - it is my life's purpose to help aspiring stylists and barbers truly see the world by evoking both new and forgotten ideas in the hair industry.
Perhaps with more insight and understanding of the multi-faceted branches of hair, future beauty professionals will have the tools to create joy in the lives of others and ultimately, help make the world a more beautiful, conscious and connected place.
Eikonic has always been a place where transformative experiences occur.
Eikonic has helped me grow professionally and presented me with an opportunity to realize my gift - to help others realize their full potential. I have made it my life mission to help others perform their life's greatest work via this platform and to find meaning and purpose through creating joy for others.
In a wildly advancing technological world where authentic, genuine human interaction between people becomes are few and far between - Eikonic will serve for future generations as a hive for cultural creativity, collaboration and positive human connection.
Your advice for new students?
Write it down. Our minds easily wander and great ideas often get forgotten or never acted upon. The first step to designing your dream future is to make it tangible reality. Grab a pen or write that idea down. You can come back and build on it later. But that way - you’ve taken the first step and started.
What is your favourite hairstyle and why?
Vintage finger waves. There’s something hauntingly beautiful and glamorous about finger waves. Perhaps I’m in love with the time period when it was the norm for men and women to dress up whenever they went out.
What is your life motto?
You have two lives. The second one starts the moment you realize you just have one. - Thanks Confucius
