What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
When I finished a customer’s hair and makeup and turned them around for the first look into the mirror, they turned to me with tears in their eyes and asked me “Is that me? I never thought I could look pretty!” I will never forget that customer’s reaction. This is why I love my job.
