may girl crush @kirbyramsay


Happy May everyone.
Here's hoping that summer 2019 is even better than summer 2018! Finally posting my second Girl crush and interview. I'll try to post one every month this summer.



Meet Kirby. She is probably the most beautiful person I've ever met, looks like Charlize Theron, she is insanely talented, has the coolest style and overall I adore her energy. She is my hairdresser and works at Le Petit Salon out on Elgin Street. If you don't get your hair done there, you are doing it all wrong. She is incredibly talented at what she does. If you're looking to get your hair done, go check her out, her social is @kirbyramsay.




Describe yourself. What are your interests and inspirations?
I would say that my inspiration comes from my love for fashion. I love fashion, the culture and the art associated with it. I draw inspiration from models, styles, art, and travel. Sometimes travelling to different places and being a “fly on the wall” so to speak is the most inspiring, to immerse yourself in another culture and be able to take something away from it is beautiful.



Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
It’s hard to say where I see myself in the next 5 years. Still pursuing my passion, of course, but perhaps exploring different avenues. As I said, fashion is a huge interest of mine so venturing into runway hair, or hair for the sake of fashion in general is absolutely an interest of mine. I would like to own my own business as well, when you’ve been in the industry as long as I have, at some point bringing your vision to life on your own terms is the next step. please start your own business Kirby




What are a couple favourite things you can't live without?
My family, I’ve always been very family oriented, having good friends and family surround you keeps you humble, and drives my ambition. There is of course, the drive to be successful for yourself to crush goals, but also to be successful for your family and make time to enjoy life. I love my family, above all. But like every other hairstylist, I’d be dead without my blow dryer.



Where is the best place you have traveled?
I've been fortunate enough to travel a good portion of the world, and as I said, draw influence from all different cultures. Ive hiked Machu Pichu in Peru, been to the middle East, Africa, backpacked through Europe, to name a few, so it's hard to pick a favourite. I was lucky enough to spend a few weeks in Vienna one summer and that was a highlight for sure. The culture, architecture and art was amazing.



Self love means ____________
That’s a tough one, self love is something you have to find in yourself. It isn’t easy, it doesn’t come quick for a lot of people but self love is something only you can figure out. To be honest, it’s something I see on a regular basis. People try and fill that void with, for example new hair, new clothes, new this, new that but those are all just material temporary things. Real self love comes from truly having the opportunity to find yourself, and spend time by yourself. Perspective teaches you a lot, and experiences play into helping you find your place in life and where you feel you are most valuable. My advice is, strip it all away, leave it all behind, take a plunge and see what’s left, and love what you find. Amen to this Kirby. I couldn't have said it better

Love,
Dove + Kirby
