What does a typical day at Luxy look like for you?
Every day looks a little different, however I am a creature of habit so I try to stick to a morning routine before heading into the day of creating! Working from home is a dream, as I’m able to create constantly wherever, whenever. My condo looks like a clothing / hair factory exploded at the end of every day so it’s a good thing I’m not throwing hair extensions onto the team’s work stations!
After I’ve had my morning walk I sit down with my cup of coffee and review the day ahead! I usually plan around one to two hairstyles a day and base my content around them as well as current trends on social media, any upcoming campaigns that require content for, as well as ensuring the staple content is continuously included.
Describe your WFH outfit
If I’m filming… It varies from dresses, to jeans, to trousers and shorts. If I’m editing, it is a guaranteed leggings or tracksuit.
Why did you decide to pursue a career in this field?
Growing up I have always been passionate about creating, it’s always felt “right” to me. In high school a teacher once asked “What would you do everyday if you never had to worry about money?” My answer was immediately “movie or video editing” to which the teacher replied “now turn that into a career.” I never thought this career would exist or be attainable, but the universe put me in the right places, quit the wrong passions along the way and introduced me to the right people. I truly believe I manifested this career!
Who is your hair inspo and why?
Hailey Bieber is always a go to when it comes to hairstyles, and of course street style. However, I started looking for women who have a similar face shape and undertones as I! This is the hack of hacks - you get to see what something would look like on you before you try it yourself. I’ve been told that I look similar to Lauren Lane - biggest compliment ever - but I will go to her page and see how she’s styling her hair, outfits, makeup, etc. Basically, if Lauren told me to style my hair with a paper bag.. I would trust her.
Favourite thing about working at Luxy?
The women. Seriously, every woman at Luxy is full of power, talent, and an amazing energy.
Which emojis do you use the most often?
✨ 💁♀️ 👏🏽
What are 3 things you are grateful for and why?
My mom and my sister are the two women in my life who consistently show up for me, support me, hold me accountable and are always on my team.Secondly, my friends. I seriously have been blessed with amazing humans who uplift and support me daily. I don’t need a big friend group and always say I would rather have one loonie than 100 pennies, and somehow I ended up with a solid 10 loonies!
Lastly, the privilege I had to go to school. Through childhood and adolescence, a lot of the time school is looked at in a negative light, but as I grew older I realized how blessed I was to be able to get an education and take on the career of my dreams.
What’s the best piece of advice you have received?

Describe your self care routine
My self care routine includes lots of water, lots of sleep, lots of laughing, lots of time with Vic from Starlight Medical spa and lots of Alumier products.
Share your haircare routine!
It varies day to day but the one tip I swear by for people with bleached hair is to condition on the days you don’t shampoo!
What was the first Luxy product that you tried and your experience?
My first experience with Luxy was a 20” Seamless Set that I came in and did a transformation with! I wore them for my birthday styled into a high pony (because we Luxy didn’t have pony’s yet) and THE COMPLIMENTS I got were… chefs kiss!
I later recreated a pony for Luxy’s YouTube!
What are your go to Luxy products for everyday and for special occasions?
I’m a firm believer in choosing an outfit or a hairstyle and then focusing the rest of the look around that one piece. If I’m wearing a curly pony (my current fav) I love a sleek look, monochromatic preferably! However, for everyday, my 16” Seamless Set is too comfortable and too blendable NOT to wear them. I used to think I had voluminous hair… and then I put this set in.
Which social platform is your favourite and who do you enjoy following the most and why?
I have to say TikTok! The variety and the entertainment mixed in with the educational and informative. It’s a one stop shop!

What’s the last thing that made you smile/giggle?
