IF: What would you term as your specialty within your trade?

IF: Why did you choose the path of hairdressing and was it easy to fall into this work?
DD: It wasn't a choice for us. From a very young age, it got our attention.
IF: If you had not made the decision to be a hairdresser what would you have been?

IF: Your favorite hairdressing tools?

IF: Tell us about your relationship with ILES FORMULA. How did you discover us and which formula is your favorite?
DD: We were on a course in Berlin with Wendy lles, she gave us a small package with the Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum, so we could try it. We were not looking for a new product, but it was perfect for both of us, and we fell in love ❣️
IF: What was the most challenging job you ever had?
DD: We wish there was a good story, but there is nothing that comes up. But when you have a bride you always are a little bit nervous.

DD: There are some, but right now nothing in particular springs to mind!

DD: Magazine, courses, the street, and books with old-style icons.

DD: Stay hungry - never stop learning!
IF: Apart from the drastic salon hygienic regulations, what changes to a salon’s every day business do you think will stay after the Covid-19 disruption?
DD: We think hand hygiene will stay, and if you catch a cold you will more likely stay home or wear a mask.
