|Billy and guest client for a makeover - head to toe|
When my client called from Florida, she said "You seemed so sweet and approachable and your location didn't seem stuffy like all those other Beverly Hills salons so I knew I had to call you. Then when I found out you went to college in Kentucky - I knew you had to be good people."
It's comments like these that always make my work super special, and rewarding. I was never one of those "I'm the artist now sit down" hair stylists. What do I know? Many stylists go down that road only to find short lived careers and ultimate burn-out after 10-15 years of know-it-all mentality. I revel in my work, the results, and how it makes people feel when you spin them around in the chair. It's that split-second AHA moment - and almost teary reactions that make me love what I do more and more every day.
Truth be told, I can't take all the credit. I have a brilliant team of experts around me that make my work look amazing. When it comes to professional wardrobe styling, I can't think of anyone else than my dear friend Jill Laine for wardrobe styling in Los Angeles.
So when it comes to your own special event whether it's a get-together, an anniversary, a celebration of some kind (or perhaps you dumped your boyfriend and you're hitting the town with your best girlfriend) - we love working with people just like you - who want to look good, feel great, and love who you are - even for one special day.
To all of you out there (and though I may never get to meet ALL of you) I thank you for keeping me passionate about my work and loving this torch that I've been called to carry.
Always yours in beauty,
