ON FACEBOOK: Hairdressers Share Their Proudest Moments

Anne Moratto | May 9, 2014 | 1:47 PM

  Wella Professionals put together a beautiful bag of beauty booty plus sweets (see below)  and offered it to MODERN as a fun giveaway. (Wella's Hairdresser at Heart initiative is all about celebrating stylists.) We put it up on Facebook and asked to hear about those moments that make hairdressers proud and convince their clients of their magic. The response was tremendous and reminded us, again, that hairdressers touch hair, hearts and change lives:

Valerie Negro Freed: Working throughout chemotherapy. Rocking a bald head. Still making clients feel beautiful.

Karri Noneya: another stylist said "kill yourself" instead I opened my salon
