Ana Gutierrez-Aleman has long been a fan of the Confucius quote "choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." And after a decade-long career in hair, it's her own personal gospel. Ana co-helms Cowboys & Angels Hair Studio with friend and stylist Ashlie De Crosta––a graduate of the prestigious Paul Mitchell hairstyling school and a fellow enthusiast for all things coiffure. The duo cut the hair of women (dubbed "angels"), and wrangle men ("cowboys") in a barbicide lasso during styling sessions.

Creating a fun and festive environment that dazzles wide-eyed youngsters, Snip-its takes the stress out of maintaining the locks of jittery tykes.
