Getting ‘it’ in the Salon Chair

I recently got my hair done. It was time to hide the grey---again. When Holly was finished I absolutely loved the color and the cut. "Holly, you make me look better! I mean I'm a nice looking lady but you definitely polish me. Thank you! You're my stylist editor." I laughed at the spontaneous idea... Continue Reading →

I Hope You…

Meeting Time

Teaching has its ups and downs and sometimes the bounce between presenting, demonstrating, teaching and evaluating is intense. Yesterday was a long day and a good portion of it was spent in front of the computer. It was a giddy-up kind of day. Dave and I typically meet on Wednesdays but I was just too... Continue Reading →
