In 2010, Lindsey Marie Venable entered her school competition with hopes of being chosen to represent Pivot Point International at The North American Hairstyling Awards (NAHA) for the year. Out of three campus locations, she was the only student chosen. “I was so grateful that my hard work had paid off but I had no idea what kind of other opportunities a competition like this would bring for me,” she says.
Shortly afterward, she was able to have her looks photographed by fashion and beauty photographer Babak and was invited to attend the NAHA ceremony in Las Vegas. One of Venable’s photos was even turned into a poster and displayed at the Pivot Point Corporate office in Evanston, Illinois, to promote services.
“I love all aspects of being a stylist,” she says. “I’d say my ultimate passion is updos. I like how I can manipulate the hair.
“My goal for the future is to love what I do. Whatever it may be, I want to be in a position where I am challenging myself and becoming better at my profession everyday.”
