When did you first realize you wanted to become a stylist?

Amanda: I always wanted to be a stylist.  As a little girl, I would go to the salon with my mom and enjoy watching the hairdressers work.

Kamiko:  I first realized I wanted to do hair when I was 18.  My best friend’s mom is a hairdresser and would come home from work, talking about hair and how good she made her clients feel.  That’s when I knew that I wanted to make people feel that way too.  I already loved to experiment with my own hair and make-up, so I figured doing it for others could only be easier, and it was.

Where did you study hair?

Amanda: Boca Beauty Academy

Kamiko: Aveda Institute of South Florida

What is your favorite part of your job?

Amanda: What I like most about my job is the smile on my client’s face when I finish their color.

Kamiko: As a stylist, I favor lots of services that are part of my job, but I mostly enjoy the confidence and satisfaction that my clients feel when leaving my chair.

What is your greatest strength as a hairdresser?

Amanda: My greatest strength as a hairdresser is my ability to get clients out of their comfort zone and experiment with new techniques.

Kamiko: My greatest strength as a stylist is in color, because I’m fascinated by the way color enhances a haircut or just a style.  I also enjoy mixing and creating new shades –that has become a passion of mine.

What are your favorite products to use on clients right now?

Amanda: My favorite products to use are our Kerastase treatments.  Each one targets a specific hair concern and the results are incredible.

Kamiko: Living in South Florida with the constant humidity, my go-to product is serum.  It is perfect for shine, frizz control and taming of hair.  I am currently hooked on Mythic Oil by Loreal Professional.

What is your favorite hair trend?

Amanda: My favorite hair style would be the Victoria Secret Sexy Look.  I just love flowing, bouncing curls.

Kamiko: My favorite hair trend is braids.  Braids are fun and versatile.  They can be worn Bohemian style to the side or for a more put together look, as a French braid.  There is a braid for every occasion

Do blondes have more fun?

Amanda: I have been blonde, brunette and a red head and I think women have the most fun in the color they feel most attractive.  For me, it would be auburn.

Kamiko: Everyone’s heard the saying “blondes have more fun”, but I’ve personally sported different hair colors and always had fun!
