How I Got Started in My Industry+

People always ask me if I always knew I wanted to do hair….. The answer to that is absolutely not. I had NO idea what I wanted to do, or what I cared about- much less found passion in. I took classes at a community college after high school & cried my way through a…

Friendsgiving+

This year we hosted and celebrated our first ever Friendsgiving. If you don’t know what that is, it’s pretty self-explanatory …Thanksgiving with Friends! Every get together we have, we like to create a photo booth. It makes a cute and fun background for pictures to save our memories. We kept it simple and moderately budget…

Client do and don’t+

Whether it’s your first time visiting a salon or your thousandth, there are a few things you should know. Some are common sense, but as we all know…. common sense isn’t so common. From booking your appointment to checking out, these little things will make your salon experience all the better. I’ll keep this list as…

Guardian Angel+

  Dad, without you there’d be a lot of squeeky, broken, unlit, cracked and chipped, overgrown, empty, and busted things in my life. People often undervalue a relationship with their father. Aside from this person being one of the two who gave you life, Dads represent something strong on psychological level. And everyone has probably…

How To Have Healthy Hair+

Have you ever been to the point where you’re in total distress because your hair is damaged, and you’re just ready to chop it off entirely? I have and I feel your pain. Trust me. Sometimes a good cut is absolutely necessary (and when I say ‘cut’, I mean more than one measly little inch),…

A journey, not a destination+

There’s this misconception that if you do all the right things, the right way, in the right order, then you will be rewarded and fulfilled and will experience eternal happiness. Or if you make 6 figures a year, everything else will fall into place. Or finding your soulmate will be the cure to all your…

6 Things Your Hairstylist Wants You to Know+

First off, I am soooo fortunate to have clients that I love. I get to work with so many different customers from every walk of life, with all kinds of personalities, that basically just don’t make me hate going into work every day. Dreading waking up every morning, hating my job, and getting burnt out is…

NYE+

Location: Savannah, GA.     Every year for NYE celebrations I’ve gone with sparkly dresses, shorts, or tops, so that’s exactly what I wanted to stay away from. I kept it pretty simple with black, nude, and a bold red lip. For some reason, I’m always more willing to try out different makeup techniques when…

Christmas Eve Eve+

On December 23, 2015, we threw a crazy awesome Christmas sweater party. I ordered my sweater from Etsy a couple of weeks before. Being the diehard Drake fan that I am, this was only fitting. Setting up+ My roommate & I initially attempted to make a photo booth wall. We got home & started cutting the tablecloth,…

An Aries Moon Perspective+

My moon sign (yes, moon. Not sun-totally different) is in 27º Aries. This might mean nothing to you, unless you’re also an Aries moon, in which case I’d be impressed if you read to the end. Wherever your moon is placed, the traits from that sign will surface-the moon influences how you react emotionally.  Assuming…

Sometimes, the best advice you can take is your own.+

I have a collection of writings from previous experiences that I’ve been compelled to share for a long time. Writing has always been therapeutic for me when my mind is clouded with emotions. The purpose of sharing many of these is my hope in reaching someone who could relate, and thus making them feel less…

The BIG Ticket+

Location: Metro Park in Jacksonville, Fl. I experienced The Big Ticket for the first time today. It’s no Warped Tour, having only two stages and taking place in a much smaller venue, but it was still worth the excitement. Twenty One Pilots and Of Monsters and Men were the two main headliners, and as I…
