“The Problem Solver”

Sophia loves problems – whether a bad DIY cut, color disaster or pandemic makeover gone horribly wrong. Her video demonstrated her patience and precision when remediating various beauty blunders. Asked to name what she loves about beauty, Sophia sites three reasons for making her career in beauty. “I love the art and the business of it, first. Second, I love the constant change, fast pace and hustle – every day is new and no two clients’ hair is the same. And third, I love being around people.” Sophia loves the transformative power of beauty and remarks that as the career is changing her life, she’s changing the lives of others. Watch her video here.
