Milestones & Awards

We do not deny that in striving for perfection, there have been hills and valleys in our journey.

But with our extensive experience working with the everyday man and woman, celebrities, media outlets, hair shows and other mane events, we’re not too modest to admit that the bouquets have far surpassed the brickbats.

Don’t take our word for it. Have a look.
