On September 27th in New Orleans, Louisiana I had the pleasure of attended Behind the Chairs One Shot Awards. I was surrounded by the top stylist in the industry who were all being recognized for their creativity, passion, and hard work - and I had the pleasure of being included with them. I was nominated along side eight other talented students for Student Look of The Year. As a recent graduate from The Aveda Institute Atlanta this was more than I could have dreamed of happening coming out of the program. Behind the Chair held the most amazing show in NOLA where I was able to mingle and learn from my hair idols. It was inspired me to work hard, be nice, and get out of my comfort zone to chase my dreams. I am very honored and thankful to have been nominated and puplished in Behind The Chairs third paper copy issue for 2015!Read More
