25 years old and recently moved from my hometown Charlotte, NC to Nashville, TN. I took cosmetology school through my high school program at the age of 15 in 2003 and have been doing hair ever since.(10years) I worked at two successful salons in Charlotte and had lots of training from the artistic director and master stylist when I first started. At the second salon I became master stylist and started doing new stylist training and education. I have taken two advanced classes at the Chicago Vidal Sassoon Academy; Mens barbering and ABC cutting. I have also taken two editorial styling classes at the Davines Ion Studio in NYC. In one week I will be traveling to NYC to take the Nick Arrojo editorial class as well as the Prive Academy editorial class and assist their design team at NY fashion week. I aspire to be on a design team and do a lot of editorial work.

"Greatness is not reserved for a chosen few. It's reserved for the few who choose it." Tonight I had the opportunity to meet greatness, a person I've been following for a long time, the CEO of @ultabeauty, Mary Dillon. She is the shining star of beauty, having been able to dance the fickle dance of consumer needs and wants in beauty, and truly understand how creating an extraordinary in-store customer experience is Ulta's greatest secret weapon. She is the woman who has competed in the most competitive consumer market that exists… beauty! And while doing it, she has not only succeeded, she has blown away every industry average and market growth expectation, having had quarters that were 7x that of market growth. The fourth of six children of a Chicago steelworker and a homemaker, Mary got her first paycheck from Jewel-Osco at the age of 16 and subsequently paid her way through college with odd jobs, working as a bank teller, cleaning houses, and waitressing at a local Chicago hangout, R.J. Grunts. Today, Mary runs a $4 billion dollar business. Remember, hard work....WORKS! It was truly an honor to meet her, and to celebrate the greatness she and her #ultabeauty team exemplifies! Thank you @ultabeauty and @nickstenson for the invite to your Michigan Avenue grand opening and for always pushing the boundaries of what is possible in beauty! @ultabeauty..... #behindthechair #ultabeauty
