Last year we introduced our first ever Citrine junior stylist, Darian. This year we’re excited to announce that she has completed our apprenticeship program and has continued to grow as a stylist and artist. We sat down with Darian to check in on her progress, and asked a couple of questions about her journey to becoming a hair stylist and where her passions and interests lie thus far.
Tell us about some of your favorite services!
I really enjoy highlighting and other blonding services! it’s great being able to brighten up a clients hair and mood so quickly! Also, I love doing updo’s and formal hairstyles. It’s fun to do something that isn’t your everyday look, and it’s great to be part of whatever special event/day a client is experiencing!
What are your must have hair products?
I have been obsessed with the Gold Lust Oil. It truly makes my hair feel moisturized and hydrated without weighing it down or feeling greasy. The oil, alongside the new Power Drops from Oribe have really saved my hair from the heat and lightener it’s exposed to!
What is in your personal hair routine?
I have been loving the Gold Lust line from Oribe! I use the Gold Lust shampoo and conditioner, and then once I’ve towel-dried my hair, I use the Gold Lust Oil throughout my mid-shaft to ends, and follow up with a little Oribe Supershine Creme to control the frizz! I find that this combo works great whether I’m wearing my hair curly or straight.
What is your favorite part about being a stylist here at Citrine?
My favorite part about being a stylist at Citrine is the camaraderie. As soon as I started working here both the staff and the clients made me feel like a part of the family. It’s great feeling that kind of support in the workplace!
Show us some of your favorite work so far!
Well if you can’t tell, I love curling hair and creating textured waves. I love the effortless updo look as well, and enjoy highlighting and foiling too!
