Becca graduated from Academy of Hair Design in Springfield, MO, and passed the State Board examination with flying colors in 2003. This, of course, does not qualify her to run a business of this nature, but it's literally the only professional certification she has, so she wanted to mention it.
She worked as a hairstylist for 10 years and very much enjoyed the close relationships she built with her clients, and the ability to help them feel good about themselves.
She's now 10 years removed from working in the beauty industry and is back to her natural hair color.
She uses the skills she learned during her time as a self-employed starving artist to keep things running efficiently.
