One step closer to our dream home. I got to work with time to spare.... My client came in... we had a consultation last week but today was the first time I was ever going to do her hair. She was recommended to

I have come a long way from my MAC days of only using MAC Cosmetics because that's what I was trained in and employed by so I therefore believed it was the end all be all. 12 years of trial and error, trying new things just to keep with the times.
