So my bff came into the studio today. I forgot to take a before. But shes been in ohio for the last year and half and she had a decent stylist out there. But she was an older woman, so there would be some days my emmy would call me so upset about her hair. Well she’s moved back to sunny cali! And i finally made her feel the way she feels on the inside.

We both absolutely loved how it came out. Its very Cheshire Cat themed, which is perfect since she loves Alice in Wonderland. (Totally didnt do it in purpose, we just realized it as i was finishing her up).


One of the stylists misunderstood me when they helped me with a client yesterday. I asked her to tone with 9nb, but she heard 9b. My client text me saying her hair was grey and green and streaky looking. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Its an easy fix of just pre arting and retoning. But i feel so bad. She has never had anyone else work on her for me before. And she the perfect client who always rebooks, buys products, and recommends people. And the one time i ask someone else to help me with her, we turn her white. >.<. So now im going in very early to fix it. But its ok. Itll look normal in no time.

I’ve always just wanted to work behind the chair. I knew someday i also wanted to get married and start a family. So being behind the chair working in a salon was just what i’ve always wanted. I know some people want to be platform artists, or work for movies and do celebrity hair. Which is so rad! And more power to you! But i know myself and i could never handle that kind of pressure, plus my stage fright is just awful.

But i wouldnt mind specializing in a color line or product line and educating around the country/world someday. Maybe when my kids are older (when i have children). I still feel like a baby in this industry, but i know my growth in these last 5 years has been great. I see it and i feel it. And i am absolutely proud and happy about where im at and where i am going.
