2016 was a freaking amazing year for me!
It started with my first solo class in Las Cruces, New Mexico at my pal, Angela's studio!
..........annnnnndddd then I got a finger tattoo to commemorate it! (( & finally got snapchat))
Followed by.... our first Goonies event in Phoenix, Arizona!
We also got to experience the Grand Canyon together!
I LOVE this picture of Ashley & Kenny!
Got my bangs cut by the AMAZING Phillip Ring...if you're a hairdresser you understand!
and spend some time together creating amazing friendships....
I participated in my first wedding event.......The Big Fake Wedding.

I went to Devine Intervention hosted by Ruby Devine & finally learned the proper way to create underlights & do the surging technique!
Then came home & used both techniques to make this....
I built some amazing working relationships with some of my favorite companies!
I expanded my salon from 115 square feet to 237 square feet and built an amazing color bar. ((with the help of my dad, of course))
Another amazing class at my friend, Ambers salon.... Shear Envy Tupelo!
Premiere Orlando with my Goonies was nothing short of amazing & it was amazing seeing my pal Phil on the main stage!
I bought brand new 2017 Subaru WRX....
Then took off to Atlanta, Georgia for our second Goonies class...
I got to meet & do hair for another stylist I've watched for a while, the beautiful Taylor Rae.
I got to celebrate my pals who were ONE SHOT finalist .....
& of course spent some time with my friends & make some new ones!
October was stellar!!! I accompanied Ruby & her mom to London, England....
Where I attend my first international hair show & got to meet another fellow stylist Jaymz Marsters.
who also turned Ruby into a fabulous rainbow...

We even took a day trip to Paris, France
Arc de Triomphe
the street of Paris
Notre Dame is just as beautiful during the day....
