TJ: Can you tell us about how you first got into hairdressing?

TJ: What is your favourite thing about the hair industry?

DB: I love how broad the hairdressing industry is, there are so many pathways and opportunities to grow. I love that it is ever evolving, so you’re constantly moving, creating, trying to crack the next trend.

TJ: Tell us about one of your career highlights.

DB: Winning the Young Talent National Gold Trend Vision Award is something I have strived for, for many years. To finally be awarded the gold was like a dream come true! Not to mention traveling to Berlin to compete on the world stage – the most amazing opportunity that one could have, the event was beyond anything I could have imagined!

TJ: What is your favourite style to create?

DB: Old-come-new, with an editorial feel. I love experimenting with different textures and creating new shapes.

DB: Never give up!

TJ: What is your favourite thing about the brand?

DB: Hard to name one, but here’s a few; its innovation, from trend setting to products. The entire colour range; Illumina, Magma, etc. The creative opportunities such as Trend Vision, platforming artists and its connection with Sebastian Professional.

TJ: What is the most popular WELLA product and why?

DB: I think the whole EIMI range will be the most popular Wella products due to their natural nature but also effective results!

TJ: What does being a WELLA Professional stylist mean to you?

DB: Wella has been a part of my journey through hairdressing from the beginning. I want to take this opportunity to thank Wella for all of their support, I am proud to say that I am a WELLA Professional Stylist!
