“Going blonde is like buying yourself a light bulb! “
“What are you going to do if you have all the money in the world and all the things that you wanted to achieve in your business and you have no one to share it with? You come home alone at the end of the day. And then what?”
“I think it’s important to get your surroundings as well as yourself into a positive state — meaning surround yourself with positive people, not the kind who are negative and jealous of everything you do.”
“I am generally a very happy and easygoing person. I also believe it’s always better to meet people with a smile rather than looking cold, especially when you first meet. It changes everything.”
“When I was younger, I had a perm, and it was really big. My mom was a hairdresser, so even my dad had a perm! I looked like a poodle, but it was cool at the time.”
“I never went to a modeling school, and I don’t suggest to anybody that they go to a modeling school… In fashion, one day you’re in, the next you’re out.”
“I feel like looking in the mirror when you brush your teeth, yes, I see lines, and then I smile and I see things here and there. But that’s just, you know, you — that’s your journey, you know?”
