IF: What inspires you?
Flowers – they never fail to amaze me or stop me in my tracks.
IF: What’s the most enjoyable part of your job?
Going to the flower market – you can easily run away with yourself (and budget) when you get there.
IF: What is your relationship with your hair?
My hair is one of my true joys! I have been doing something to my hair since I was 14. I finally feel like I have found my groove now – I am probably addicted to bleaching it but there is no better feeling for a blonde than when
you leave the salon. Since going full bleach my hair is actually in a better condition than before as I take better care of it.
IF: Your favorite destination?
IF: Best fashion inspiration decade?

Amy Winehouse, Frida Khalo, Patti Smith, and Gloria Steinem.
IF: How did you hear about Iles Formula?
Phoebe, at Keenaland in Hackney, has been using it on my hair for a while now. I really love the products – I see an immediate difference.
IF: Do you read directions for use?
IF: Do you read the composition of a product?
Now more than ever – especially as I bleach my hair so often. I just can’t afford to not use good products with quality ingredients.
IF: Your favorite Iles Formula product?
The serum – it’s really great for over-processed hair like mine but it’s not too thick that my hair is greasy afterwards.

IF: What is being a woman in 2020?
Being a woman in 2020 is as equally rewarding as it is frustrating. More often than not I am truly baffled by how backwards we are as a society. However, if you surround yourself with people who are on the same path as you, then being a woman in 2020 is pretty amazing.
