When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
I first developed a passion for the beauty industry while working at my aunt's salon in 1983. I loved meeting new clients, and seeing their faces after I finished doing their hair. As a woman, getting your hair done can boost your ego, elevate your mood, and make you feel like a brand-new person. All that being said, I just love people, and I love making them feel like a million bucks.
