I styled hair and cut hair for several key choreographers and dancers of Beyoncé I got to make a lot of contacts from working celebrity nightlife in NY. Dancing for some of Rupaul’s Drag Race drag queens and hanging with club kids. It all taught me a lot about all around style. Hair, makeup, clothing…just how to have good taste all around and use discernment on looks, feels and tastes!
