Working in the beauty industry has been a lifelong passion of Meghan’s. She studied cosmetology at a technical high school in southeastern Massachusetts, where her instructors told her she was meant to be an educator. Specializing in color, Meghan loves challenging situations such as color correction and also enjoys staying on the pulse of trendy techniques to bring to her classrooms and the salon. Although Meghan is a color specialist, she is equally passionate about cutting. She especially loves dry cutting and experimenting with new techniques. Meghan put her all into her hairdressing career, both behind the chair and as an educator Meghan is willing to do whatever it takes to follow her dreams of becoming a Matrix Artistic Designer and pays it forward by helping inspire beauty school graduates and hairdressers like herself.
1. Describe the vision of your Trilogy of Beauty presentation. My vision for Underground is purposeful with lots of color, edge and style. I draw inspiration from music, painting, sculptures and architecture.
2. How has your mentor guided/inspired you? I am inspired by Chrystofer’s motivation, drive and technical skill. He is always pushing the limits to see what is next. I am always trying to improve everything I do every day so I can push myself to grow and no live within boundaries.
3. What has been the best advice your mentor has given you? The best advice Chrystofer has given me was to be myself. I have always found myself worrying about what I should be and he made me feel so comfortable when he told me to be who I am.
4. What has been the most memorable moment in your career thus far? I get emotional just thinking about it. It was the best moment in my life not just my career. This year I had the opportunity to assist Chrystofer Benson on stage at a show. This has been a dream come true to not only get to meet my idol, but to work side-by-side him on a stage is something I never dreamed would be possible.
5. What would be your best piece of advice for future professionals? The best piece of advice I have for a beauty school student is to look for a salon that offers education as well as someone who wants to mentor and support you as you learn and grow. Your first salon experience will set up the rest of your career so choose a salon that you feel comfortable in as well as a salon that will help inspire you.
