New Book Coming Soon! How to Survive Beauty School

I’m super-excited to let you know my newest book is on its way to the public VERY, very soon! It’s called “How to Survive Beauty School: The Ultimate, No-Nonsense Guide to Thriving as a Cosmetology Student,” and it is THE go-to resource for anyone contemplating going to cosmetology school or who is currently a cosmo student!

The book includes a whole bunch of tips, advice, and wisdom from deciding whether this is your “right” career path, to choosing a school, to getting through school with (most of) your sanity intact, to preparing for the real world. The book will be available as paperback and digital via Amazon.

Below is a great detail from the book’s illustrated cover! I can hardly wait for the release and to share this information with you. Stay tuned!!

Recent Work: Balayage Bombshell

She came in with about a year’s worth of outgrowth from an old bleach & tone, and wanted a bright, light blonde that still looked natural. I used Wella Freelights for the balayage and toned her with ColorTouch. She looked amazing afterward, like a brand-new woman! We were both thrilled with the results :-)

Recent Work: From Faded Green to Ice Queen!

This client was ready for a MAJOR change and was definitely WOWed when she got it! It took several hours and multiple steps to lift her natural color as well as the faded green from her ends. She wanted white, not just platinum, so I used the classic Wella Color Charm T18 “White Lady” toner to achieve the cool blonde she wanted. This was a big project, but well worth the time and effort!
