Liz Contreras Dallas Stylist Q&A:
I’ve been a stylist for 14 years. Hair IS my passion! I could never imagine doing anything else but hair. I love creating new, stylish, trendy looks and having my client on the verge of tears, is something that fills my heart with joy! This is definitely the most rewarding job I’ve ever had!
I love doing cuts and colors but I absolutely LOVE extensions! Talk about an instant transformation. When it comes to extensions I’ve been trained to do all the different system The Beauty Box Salon has to offer. I’ve attended several continuing education classes which include cut, color, extensions, product knowledge and many more.
My goal is to continue to learn so that I can continue to deliver at maximum capacity because at the end of the day my ultimate goal is to make a unique difference in each one of my clients.
Why do you love hair? I love hair because it’s the one accessory that you can wear many different ways!
Favorite Service(s) to Provide: My absolute favorite hair services are color and hair extensions! Being able to completely transform someone just by coloring/adding hair is something that only a hair stylist can understand.
Favorite book? A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle. I love reading spiritual and inspirational books because they seem to put things in perspective for me.
If you were on a trip and your luggage was lost, what essential products would you have to have in your carry on? I have to have good shampoo and conditioner and that would be Oribe’s moisture and control. No products will work properly in my hair if it hasn’t been cleansed with the right product. Then I CANNOT do without the Royal Blowout to have a nice polished finished look.
If you had to do one style of hair for the rest of your life, what would it be? Seriously?!?!?! If I absolutely have to choose I would say long, thick, layered hair because to me that says “sexy” hair!
Grade you got on your first hair test? Definitely a 100! Yup without a doubt!!
Personal Hair Horror Story: I didn’t have much experience with mens haircuts. A very handsome military man came to the salon one day wanting a haircut. I was super nervous. It took me over an hour to cut his hair. His exact words were “please, whatever you do, don’t give me a high and tight”…end result, a high and tight. That was almost 5 years ago. We’ve been together ever since. It’s more of a “love story” to me.
Favorite cocktail? Top shelf margarita on the rocks with salt on the rim and a lime! Yum!!!
Is there one gift you don’t mind getting over and over again? Cash, gift cards, diamonds, yup any of those will do![title size=”2″ content_align=”left” style_type=”default” sep_color=”” class=”” id=””]Portfolio Work & Blog Posts[/title][blog number_posts=”20″ offset=”” cat_slug=”blog-posts-liz-contreras” exclude_cats=”” title=”yes” title_link=”yes” thumbnail=”yes” excerpt=”yes” excerpt_length=”35″ meta_all=”yes” meta_author=”yes” meta_categories=”yes” meta_comments=”yes” meta_date=”yes” meta_link=”yes” meta_tags=”yes” paging=”yes” scrolling=”pagination” strip_html=”yes” blog_grid_columns=”3″ blog_grid_column_spacing=”40″ layout=”medium alternate” class=”” id=””][/blog]
