Amie Duarte’s career in the hair industry started with a fascination watching her stylist work. After she finished hair school, her stylist hired Amie as her assistant, bringing her story full circle. Her background in gymnastics and volleyball brings a confident competitiveness and sportsmanship to everything Amie does, including hair. Like most successful people, Amie starts each morning with a workout to mentally and physically prepare her to tackle the day. Not surprisingly, this on-the-go Boss only carries a protein bar and lip gloss in her pocket!
Q: What’s the best advice you ever received?
A: If you no longer can learn anything from anyone in your salon, it’s time to leave.

Q: What advice do you have for someone starting out in the hair industry?
A: Try new things and don’t be afraid! You will fail, but that will only make you better and even more amazing! (This is good advice for anyone and we couldn’t agree more!)
