Recognizing Pride Month in the Salon

Recognizing Pride Month in the Salon
The world is certainly not always in our favor, and tends to be cruel, which is why we all need to show love and not focus on the things that become divisive. Rather, we need to understand that we are all just human, searching for the same fundamental desires in perhaps vastly different ways.

Mental Health and the Beauty Industry

Mental Health and the Beauty Industry
I feel fortunate to work in an industry that has influence over people’s mental health in such a simple, but profound way. The conversations that are made during the appointment, and then of course the end result, bring out the best in people; not only in the client in my chair, but in myself as well.

The Power of Radical Beauty

The Power of Radical Beauty

Some makeup wearers and lovers of all things glam, particularly those that prefer a bolder look, are treated with prejudice while assumptions are made against them. Men and trans women who wear makeup are at the highest risk of being discriminated against in extreme ways. Many don’t treat this industry or those within it with due respect. Despite the blowback, this is beginning to change and we are gaining momentum with the resistance against tradition and misogynistic standards of beauty. People crave to see independence highlighted as we look for authenticity in our lives. Hair and makeup styles now reflect a bold assertiveness to push against convention, or a soft focus to enhance our realest selves. I am here to aid in the change of these perceptions, to create a safer, more inclusive world for us to thrive in.
