Modern Salon Magazine Published My Work!!!

This is published in the December 2013 issue of Modern Salon Magazine on page 36!!!


I could not have done this without the help and support of Bella Salon & Spa, Oribe Hair Care, Photographer Steve Wampler, Make-up Artist Jessica Timko, and Model Brigid Flanagan. When one of us is featured we all are! I am so lucky! This is so exciting! It is such a dream! It is recognition like this that keeps me going!!!

Every year for the past 25 years there is a contest called NAHA (North American Hairstyling Awards). We entered the Avant Garde Category. Our goal is to win it one day. If one does get nominated for an award one would get to go to the award show in Las Vegas in the summertime. This year we did not get nominated but we did get recognized in an Oribe Hair Care Portfolio Contest by uploading our work on (a website for the Oribe to community to network). This is how we were recognized in Modern Salon Magazine.
