How many Long Island Teas does it take before someone thinks they are actually in Long Island? Haha ... I always joke with my customers and tell them that if they drink enough of anything they can be wherever they want.

Where would you want to be? Anywhere sunny and tropical holds the key to my vacation heart. I love traveling to different islands.

Do you consider Myrtle Beach a tropical island? (Technically it’s surrounded by water...) No, I do not consider it a “tropical island,” but I do love living here because it has the beach, ocean and even living here, I can still feel like I’m on vacation.

When you’re not working at the bar or ‘vacationing’ at our beach, where can people find you? Well, I recently opened a new salon in the area so I spend a lot of my time there. I do spend most of my time working but I love to be outdoors, so during the warm months on my time off I’m usually spending my time doing outdoor activities or traveling.

What’s the best hairstyle for a beach day? I actually go to the beach with my hair wet and conditioned well to help keep the sun from drying it out as much.

What’s the best hairstyle for a rainy day? You can never go wrong with a simple pony tail or side braid on those rainy days.

What’s the best hairstyle for Memorial Day? Maybe a loose fishtail braid, it can be cute for both day or night, beach or activities.

What are your plans for this Memorial Day? Most likely spend the day at the pool or on the boat.

Do you ever hop on a motorcycle during the month of May? Not much anymore. I used to love to ride and even had my own bike at one time but after being in a bad motorcycle accident back a few years ago, I don’t ride too much anymore. I still like to enjoy the bike week festivities, though!

What’s the best hairstyle for a riding a bike? I usually do a braid for riding a bike.

What’s the best way for a person to get rid of hat-head, or ‘helmet hair’? The way I suggest getting rid of helment head is to flip your head over and rustle your fingers through the top and if you have a bag, carry some dry shampoo volumizing spray to spray to get some volume back.

When can people find you behind the bar? I’m at Chuck and Ducks every Friday night!

And where can people find you to get their hair done? Rockin’ Hott Salon. (1256 Third Ave. S., Myrtle Beach)
