Tracey once said to me
“Every person is like an audition. Doesn’t matter if they are an A list celebrity or the girl next door. You do your best to get the call back.”
I think about that every time I touch someone’s head of hair.
Robles first started working with Tracey as a fill-in one day when one of her assistants was not available. It became a once a week thing, and I felt so fortunate then that lead to a full time position! I originally was a stylist beforehand, but needed to get my foot in the door and did anything and everything to make that happen. I became an assistant all over again (which some would say I’m crazy to do) , but this time around and having one on one tuition coming from the best – Tracey, I knew my fate would be sealed. There were some hard times – Tracey’s work ethic, bar none, is 100%, she gives her all – and we as her assistants emulate this trait. I have so many great and amazing memories and experiences. I learnt through hard work come great rewards, never saying no, and to always give it your all.
I am currently working at Meche Salon, as a stylist doing hair for red carpet events such as the Oscars and Golden Globes, working on film and TV sets and various photo shoots. I continue to do color here and there and when I do color,
I do it the Tracey way!
I’m so grateful for the time I’ve had learning from her, I love the energy and inspiration that I am surround by everyday – with Tracey at the helm. I seriously learn something new everyday.
