Imagine a job where you do what you are absolutely obsessed with for 8-14 hours a day. You get to laugh, be serious, educate, build confidence, create and be social! It’s a high school reunion with more flashbacks than Friday and a family get together, but you also meet a ton of new people and make lifelong friends in the process! That’s my job. That’s hair for me. Thank you. To all of you who support me LITERALLY with my passion, fulfilling my dreams and happiness and allowing me to be able to pay my bills + the Fairy Taxmother.

Fight for the boobies! 👊🏼💗 This is my good friend's mom. She is a survivor of breast cancer. Her Hair is growing back but is so hard and not nice at all because of all that chemo treatments. She asked me for something fun, something different and lively. And i gave her a hair celebration for being strong and beat that stupid cancer up. 🤗 I also sent her home with Timeless products by @livingproofinc to help regrow all that hair loss. #awarenessmonth #breastcancer #cancersurvivor _______________________ CUT-COLOR-STYLE BOOK APPOINTMENT WITH ME BY DIRECT MESSAGE/CALL @theloftwinnipeg _______________________ #theloftwinnipeg #winnipeghairsalon #winnipeghairstylist #behindthechair #modernsalon #winnipeg #hairstyling #haircolor #redkenobsessed #redken #hair #mettalichair #allabouthair #hotonbeauty #dreamhair #shorthair #pixiecut #cancersucks
