The Faces Of Maximum FX: Meet Kendra

Behind every successful company is an amazing team of people who make it all happen.  Meet Kendra, one of our newest team members.  Kendra is new Maximum FX, but she's not new to the industry.  Originally from Oklahoma, Kendra enjoyed a brief stint in Seattle before moving to Austin.   Kendra is a cutting specialist at Maximum FX.  We sat down and asked Kendra a few questions to allow you to get to know her better.  Here's what she had to say:

1) Why did you choose this industry?

To make people feel beautiful and confident. I enjoy coming to work every day and having the opportunity to express my creativity.

2) What is your favorite part of your job?

Making a slight or dramatic change to a client's haircut and the client being wowed and excited by the change. I love working in a team environment, sharing ideas and creating new styles.

3) What do you like to do for fun outside of work?

I enjoy traveling, cooking, and playing with my dog.

4) What motivates you?

Myself and surrounding myself around positive people.

5) Who is your favorite celebrity and why?

I don't really have a favorite celebrity, but Charlize Theron is a pretty amazing actress and she always has great style.

6) What attracted you to Maximum FX?

I knew that Maximum FX was an Aveda Lifestyle salon and once I learned about the company's history, values and culture, I knew I wanted to be a part of this organization.

7) What advice would you give someone who's thinking about making a career in the salon/spa industry?

Go to a reputable school and dive right in to an apprenticeship program at a respected salon.

8) What is your favorite Aveda product and why?

Air Control! It's the first hair spray that I've worked with that is environmentally friendly, does not sue plastic in the ingredients and it does exactly what the directions say it will do. I especially love being able to layer the amount or being able to use it in the morning and afternoon without it becoming sticky.

9) Who has had the greatest influence on your career and why?

My mentor at the salon where I worked in Seattle. I was his assistant for six months. He taught me how to treat clients, how not to cut corners, good work ethic and how to have fun while still being professional. He helped to give me the confidence I needed to be a great stylist.

10) Share one thing interesting about yourself that people typically don't know about you.

I took a year and a half off from styling hair and worked as a surgical assistant in oral surgery. I could not wait to get back into hair.
