Adding to her versatile nature, Harley's musical interests run the gamut from old school rock 'n' roll to post-punk classics, and the tracks she's spinning are always fresh, diverse and a bit unexpected. Expanding her musical prowess, Harley also played bass guitar for several bands including The Tints and most recently Lissy Trullie.

"It's just really cool to be the brand ambassador for Sebastian Professional," Harley comments. "It's exciting that I'm now the new face of Sebastian Potion 9 because I like this product personally and I've had Sebastian in my bathroom for years!"
