“The hardest thing for us being closed for three months is that we are ‘people people.’ We love that connection with people.

My hope for the future is that maybe before, people didn’t take this industry so seriously and saw it as something fun, or maybe didn’t understand how much training goes into what we do behind the chair, and now after learning the hard way—with trying to tackle the husband’s hair—they realize how important the business industry is to our overall well-being and how when we look good on the outside, it makes us feel good on the inside.”
