Beauty legend you respect: Dolly Parton is my personal beauty legend. Like myself, Dolly was raised on the farm and as she would say it "dirt poor". Starting at childhood in 1957, Dolly sang her heart out for anyone listening. She is still doing it today, big hair and all. How could you not respect that!

Choose beauty because:.As a hairdresser you are able to create art that can be worn daily to make people feel beautiful and confident.
