JNS: “Hi Irma, lets get down to it. What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned so far?

IG: “For me, the most interesting thing I’ve learned so far has to be Men’s Cutting and Styling. It’s growing in popularity so much right now.”

JNS: “Interesting, I would have thought you would say editorial styling!  I’ve seen some of your looks and they’re fantastic. Do you have a favorite product to use?”

IG: “I love Davines, specifically Oi. It’s amazing for thick hair, and it smells delicious”

JNS: “How about favorite hair and makeup related Instagrams? Are there any you’re currently loving?”

IG: “Guy Tang (@guy_tang) because he’s a baller colorist. Hollis King (@hollis_king) because she’s super hot. Oh! And Lora Arellano (@lora_arellano)! She’s an awesome makeup artist.”

JNS: “Do you have any advice for a cosmetologist student that’s just starting out?”

IG: “KEEP ALL YOUR LOST TIME SHEETS. And STAY FOCUSED on your craft and sense of self.”

JNS: “Lost time sheets! Yes! That is so important, they’re as good as gold. What did you like the most about being at Federico?”

IG:  “THE PEOPLE… And the education. First class all the way!”
