Columbia Chicago journalism graduate. I interview cool people and obsess over nails. You can get an idea of my interest by viewing my blog, as well as stories and interviews composed by me. I started as a writer for M.I.S.S., Gloss Magazine Online, The Lipstick Diaries, and Don't Trip Yet. Today I blog for NailPorn and I contribute to Jungle Gym Magazine.
I am the co-editor of Tipsy Zine,
Author of THAT'S TOTALLY IN! THE ADVENTURES OF ISIS NICOLE ILLUSTRATED BY SARA M LYONS and your coco connect.

illy Lussiano, a hair artist wonder woman who hopes to positively impact the lives of all girls, is by far one of the sweetest people I’ve ever interviewed. I actually came across her in September when I was on this massive Euroasian hair search, which she probably doesn’t remember! And now she’s on my list of bloggy love. See how life works?! In this Q&A illy Lussiano talks inspiration, a history with mixed hair textures, sex friendly hairstyles, wanting to work with Disco Nail + Eriko Nakao, and more after the jump!
I prepare by actually getting a feel for my clients, talking with them via email or text (mini consults). Then they come in for their appointments and we do a full blown consult so at this point we have already established a level of trust and comfort. This allows for my clients to be open and honest about what they really want to know about hair and what they want their hair to look like.
