Beauty to me, is more of a feeling. Making my clients look their absolute best and helping them feel beautiful. Watching them exude that self-confidence which comes from within is very special. Having the ability to be part of that is an awesome privilege.
What do you most love about your work?
What I love most about my work is the transformation. A transformation of an individual style or image, the transformation of my clients when they walk out the door, heads held high. The look they have when they first see the new them, or the refreshed and revitalized them.
