Beauty legend you respect: Madonna is a beauty icon. She is intelligent, beautiful and savvy in every way. I absolutely respect her confidence, strength and longevity, all while   being herself and pushing limits.  

Choose beauty because: While a guest sits in our chair, we have the ability to make someone’s day using the art of listening and then delivering a look.  

Tip:  Know and love your craft, be 100 percent present with your guests, give back, always look your best.
