So Jamie, Tell us a little about yourself…
How did you get into hair?
My mother suggested I consider going to beauty school.  She noticed I wasn’t inspired by any of the colleges I was visiting and thought I might be better suited for a different path.   She was right.  (As she is about pretty much everything)
What was the most favorite hairstyle you’ve had?
I’ve had too many hairstyles to pick a favorite.  But I do think back fondly about the time I had synthetic dread locks that hung down to my knees.  If anyone knows me, they realize I usually like my hair to make a statement.  And what a statement that was!
When did you first realize you were interested in hair?
I first realized I was interested in hair when I was 8 years old and obsessed over cutting all my hair short in order to get it to spike straight up.  My mom took me to get my hair cut and even though I looked just like a little boy, it was exactly how I wanted and I could not have been happier.  I’ve pretty much had short hair ever since.
What drives you todo what you do?
What drives me to do most everything I do is the knowledge that I only get one shot at life and it could end at any moment.  It may sound morbid, but I often remind myself of this in order to take advantage of every moment and make the most out of the time that I have.
What is your ideal Chicago stayacation weekend?
I actually just love to stay the night at The Intercontinental.  They have the most amazing beds!  Plus a visit to MOCA is always nice.
 What’s the first thing you’d do if you won a million dollars?
 If I won a million dollars, I would use it to pay off my debt and most likely invest the rest.  Boring, but practical.
