2010 in review
2010 was a beautiful but challenging year. I started LOOK a beauty blog to start an ongoing soapbox/forum for my clients and I to enrich our thoughts about beauty and keep inspiration alive. In May I left my home of 5 years at Classical Concepts AVEDA to go independent at the Epiphany of Hair Design. There, I’ve been learning all about the art of profits and losses, tax quarters, paying estimated taxes, how awesome having a great accountant is, ordering inventory, Redken v. L’Anza (L’Anza wins), and other small business adventures… Another amazing photoshoot for the newest LUMETE campaign, Metroland Fall and Holiday fashion spreads, and multiple enchanted weddings on location that I was honored to work for. I’ve also been cultivating plans to open my own salon. Some of you may know this, and I anticipate this with excitement, underlined with the pointed thrill of “Oh MY God, What AM I DOING!” I’ve gotten my logo and name ready, and as we speak little graphic design elves are carving away a website for the business. Whether I open my doors in 2011 or not is yet to be determined, but trust me readers, I will keep you posted.
Below I’ve posted LOOK’s statistics for 2010. Have a peak, the results surprised me!!
THANK YOU, everyone, for following me both here and in the salon. I love and appreciate each and every one of you!
