This month I want to introduce you to a wonderful lady over at On Stage Three in Magnolia: Monica. Just this week Monica was moved up a level and is now at our highest stylist level of director. This isn't an easy feat. It takes years, lots of education and requirements, and a test out to get to where Monica is today. And she does it all with a two-year-old. She's pretty much superstylistwoman. It's easy to see why she's this months spotlight stylist.

I talked to Monica this week about her career and life as a hair stylist. Here's what she had to say.
How long have you been cutting hair?
This October will be five years
What you consider yourself a specialist in?
I am pretty much a well rounded stylist, I can do a little of everything, except men's fades scare me to death!!!
What do you have the most fun doing?
I love haircutting, I love that I can see how it's coming together instantly. I love the fact that I have the talent to make people feel good about themselves.
What awards have you won?
I won a BEACON award in hair school, it was a contest put on through the Professional Beauty Association to see the talent of young and new stylist.
What kind of special classes have you taken?
I've attended a class with Nick Arrojo, Nick Berardi, and an intense two day color class with Alexandra Matiz.
What do you think is your favorite fall look?
Long layered copper red hair or long layered rich chocolately brown!
What is your least favorite hairstyle of all time?
Oh by far the mullet, what was the person thinking when they said...oh this would look good if I just cut the top off and left back really long! Seriously???
How would you describe your personal style and hair style?
Simple. My hair is simple (I'm trying to grow it out), my closet is simple. I have a lot of solid colored clothing and a lot of staple pieces. I love the accessoried look but it's just not me. I love to be comfortable in my clothing. When I'm not at work, I'm a tshirt and jeans type of girl!
If you could have anyone's hair instead of your own, who would you have?
Any of the kardashian sisters. I know it's fake but man is it gorgeous...one of these days!
Do you have a message that you would like to tell all your clients?
First of all, thank you for all the support and loyalty of my clients. Without them I would have no career, a lot of my clients are like my family. I want my clients to come to me and have full trust in me, I'm not going to give them something that I know they can't pull off or won't have time to fix. I just want them to feel good when they leave my chair!
