"Love what you do, it does not feel like work!" I love that quote. It is very true! I started working at Salon Lorrene in Palatine Illinois from age 24-40. I became a hairstylist at age 21. Growing up I loved to play with my own hair, my doll's hair and other people's hair. I always knew I wanted to be a hairstylist. I did get my Associates in Arts degree and then spent time at ISU in Bloomington Illinois and it was in my third year of college I couldn't take It anymore and just wanted to come home and do something I was passionate about.
