This image was taken outside of the first salon I worked at professionally. The salon that taught me a lot of what I know.
The beauty industry can be very cold and cut throat. There is certainly a survival of the fittest mentality that is not always nurturing to the growth of young artist. In the midst of the cold shoulders, cold looks and cold standards of beauty I found love.
Love for my self, my art, my talent and new found family. I'm still very close to my mentors and salon family. The love we have is one that gave birth to so many possibilities.
I am forever grateful and thankful for love.
