This week’s inspirational person is the talented hair stylist, Sabrina Szinay (picture above). Sabrina is Danish but has moved to New York to pursue her dream in the big competitive apple. Sabrina is extremely talented and I have worked together with Sabrina on photoshoots and was amazed by her talent with hair. She made me look fabulous and confident. Also Sabrina has a lovely personality and I got along with her from the beginning. Sabrina has been back and forth between Copenhagen and New York but has been in New York for more than a year now. She does cool jobs for Models.com (second picture above), DANSK, Opening Ceremony, and many more international clients. She is an inspiration to me because she follow her heart and are not afraid of taking chances and to see where life brings her. Therefore I made a Q&A with Sabrina about her life as a professional hair stylist, motivation and goals.

  • Q: What is your currently project that you are working on?
  • A: My current project is finding an apartment in NYC, which is hard – I?m a little picky and it?s quite expensive to be picky in NYC, haha!
  • Q: How did you end up doing what you do today?
  • A: I am the 3rd generation of hairstylists in my family. I think, I tried to avoid the field in the beginning. But I couldn?t help it, I was looking in magazines and felt so inspired, so after graduating I went into the fashion industry.
  • Q: Did you set goals about where you wanted to be?
  • A: Yes, I?ve always had goals and keeping myself motivated with dreams and worked hard to reach what I?ve been striking to do. I went back and forth to NYC for a couple of years and finally moved in August 2015, the best move I?ve done so far.
  • Q: What inspires you in life?
  • A: Cultures, art, animals, people, spirituality. Life, I guess.
  • Q: What motivates you?
  • A: Motivating and good energized people, who are willing to brainstorm and share ideas with you. I love when people are open to create together.
  • Q: How do you take care of your body?
  • A: I walk a lot and love to relax and stretch with yoga. Also, I?ve recently tried out Body SDS, (self development?s system) and is very recommendable! It?s a kind of a massage, body therapy and self development in one.
  • Q: What is your food item/s of indulgence?
  • A: Everything at By Chloe – amazing vegan fast-food café, their burgers, salads, caaakes! Yum – my new favorite in NYC!
  • Q: What is your beauty secret/tip?
  • A: You could have me namedropping all kind of cremes and scrubs – but instead I have to phrase that what we eat is so important! I’ve watched Forks over Knives and Cowspiracy and it changed my perspective completely. Eating less or none meat and diary does not only make a much healthier body, but also safes the planet from one of the most destroying industries. Sorry, the question got another turn:) I?m addicted to Tromborg’s facial sunscreen, which I use all year – it?s very light and in the wintertime I use Embryolisse on top.
  • Q: What is your next goal?
  • A: I have many goals, but right now I?m happy to be in New York – work is good and I?m trying to float with it and enjoy every second. Without pushing it I will enjoy it and take it in my own tempo – I?m still young compared to people in my business. But one goal is and will probably always be, getting better.
