|Ann Bray, owner of The Masters Salon in Huntsville, Alabama, has made a big name for herself as an Aquage Master Artist.|
THE COOLEST LOOK I EVER CREATED:
A hair style I call "The Shell," which was America's first and only Gold Medal winner in the World Championships of hairdressing team competitions.

MY FAVORITE TOOL OR PRODUCT: Aquage Finishing Spray. It's the perfect tool for building my designs because I can apply it in layers. It gives me the hold and control I need to create a really polished look that literally glows with shine. I couldn't work without it.

MOST PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT: My home is like a re-run of
101 Dalmatians, except I have Malteses and Yorkies.

MY SECRET TALENT: Preparation. I learned a long time ago that luck is where preparation meets opportunity-investing the time and energy and having the discipline to train and prepare allows you to perform
