Meet Taylor Mauritz
Taylor is LIVE SALON's first team member working along side owner & stylist, Amanda. LIVE SALON is so happy to have found such an asset to the company. Not only is Taylor beautiful inside and out but she is eager to learn, creative, funny, and kind. We are very excited to introduce her to all of LIVE SALON's guests.
LIVE SALON decided to ask some fun questions for Taylor to answer so you, our guests, can better get to know her and her fun-loving personality.
Taylor, what made you decide doing hair and makeup was your "thang"?
Well, like a lot of people who put on makeup for the first time, you realize just how magical it is. Whether it's full-on-glam or natural beauty. After doing it on myself for so many years, I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoy applying it on others. I love when they have the "OMG" moment. It makes my day. I figured since I love cosmetics so much, I'd expand upon it into the whole shebang and go to cosmetology school.
What is your favorite thing about the beauty industry?
My favorite thing about the beauty industry is the endless possibilities. You can have a different style every day of the week. One day you can be super glam with an amazing dress or have a messy bun and a little mascara while wearing yoga pants. You can try so many styles and be whoever you want to be.
Whose celebrity style most influences you?
I gotta be honest, I'm more influenced by Pinterest than any one celebrity's style. Browsing Pinterest is dangerous. But if I had to pick someone I'd probably say Kendall Jenner, atleast because of her casual clothing choices anyway.
Okay. If you were to do a celebrity's hair and makeup (dead or alive), who would it be?
Oh my gosh! If I ever got to meet Angelina Jolie I would be so pumped! She is absolutely gorgeous and she has such a good heart.
Have you ever had a hair horror story of your own?
Have you ever had fringe (aka bangs) that was too short? Like TOO short? Yea. Not fun.
Do you have any pets?
Oh yes I do! I have a little Holland Lop bunny named Maple. I actually have a picture of her at the salon. She's fixed but hopefully within the year, she's gonna have a new bunny buddy.
Awwww. A bunny!!! What's something adorable your bunny does?
Well rabbits do this thing called a 'binky' where they'll randomly just hop up into the air. It's so adorable.
What is your favorite song that gets your pumped and ready to conquer some hair and makeup?
My taste of music comprises of some new songs and 80s music. So I love listening to some Prince or some of my premade Spotify playlists.
What do you like to do for fun outside of work?
Shopping is the number one! When the budget allows for it of course. I also enjoy cooking, swimming, and doing DIY projects.
What is your favorite thing about working for LIVE SALON?
It's truly like no other salon I've been to. It has such a calm atmosphere... most days (sometimes it's nuts and clients everywhere). I know in my heart that this is the salon I'll learn so much in and most definitely succeed. It helps that I also have an amazing teacher.
What is a beauty hack you would like to tell our guests?
If you're on a budget use coconut oil as a makeup primer and moisturizer. Heck! You can use it for smoothing frizzy hair, a hair mask, shaving, cooking, literally everything! Cocnut Oil is the Holy Grail. Many AG products contain coconut oil.
And finally... LIVE SALON is all about empowerment. What is an inspirational quote you would like to share?
"I believe all women are pretty without makeup - but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful"."
