There was a time in my career where I was diagnosed with something that would not allow me to be a hairstylist and a makeup artist.
It was then that I realized the burning passion I had to be creative. I was managing a hair salon where my creativity was turning into numbers and solving problems. I found myself digging in my closet and cutting, ripping and RECREATING all of my clothes.
It was then I realized I had been recreating my guests looks all along.
I was very lucky to go back to my career as I had healed myself from my carpel tunnel, and realized its my promise to myself and my guests that no matter how many times I have seen someone, no matter what the situation, I would always look at the hair and faces as a fresh pallet, a fresh start, something that once was can be beautifully recreated into something new and fresh.
We are constantly forever growing and changing and I think that that is the most important factor in the beauty industry to always have in mind as an artist.
