1...keeping the crazy in check. Screaming kids, just a trim when they really need to buzz it and start over, and balance that with family and a life. Being a rockstar stylist is hard work! —Aimee LaPlante-Ward

2...comedy...I can make my clients laugh til they snort. —Kateri Johnson

3...singing the national anthem backward.—Becki Thomas

4...mud and obstacle racing! Nothing like running a muddy 5k through a ski slope with fire, barbwire, and freezing cold water to get your adrenaline pumping and energy flowing for the salon! It gives me some interesting conversation for my clients, male and female, as well and it's something to train for and keep my body in shape year round! —Katie Gilbert

5... I can do a one armed handstand! I guess 25 years of doing hair has made my arms strong! —Laura Doyle Stalemark

6...being able to make anyone feel comfortable and welcomed weather there walking into a salon or lost on the street. —Amanda Smith

7...customer service. Making a client feel beautiful on the outside is important but that fades, making them feel beautiful on the inside never fades. —Clover Belle Carbajal

8... life coaching. I love to create beauty on the physical plane but when someone is open to it, I like to ask questions that empower a person to make a choice in their life that they were previously afraid to. Illuminating a possibility for someone that they didn't see before is so amazing and can seriously change the world. So essentially, hairdressing allows me to change the world. One hair at a time. —Autumn Whisman

9... my ability to remember things about my clients. It makes them feel special when you ask about their sick cat or how their child's play went. It lets them know they are more than just "next in line." —Angela Haumesser Prock

10...keeping a straight face thru all of the stories I hear. Good, bad, and ugly. To say I counsel people would be a safe assumption.—Jennifer Swinney Madden

REMEMBER.... Each day brings a new post and a new opportunity to win something cool, so make sure you, and your collegues, "LIKE" MODERN's Facebook page!
