As an entrepreneur, I often get asked two questions: “What is your greatest challenge?” and “What is your greatest success?” These questions can get asked at productive roundtable meetings with other successful business owners or simply as a talking point while networking.
Glad to see you again!
Lately, I’ve been blogging quite a bit about history, and after some feedback from my readers, I’ll be switching it up every now and then to talk about Never Forgotten and my journey as a hair artist. This way, we’ll have a lovely blend of past and present!
Halloween is by far my favorite time of the year! Between the crisp fall weather, the candy, the food, children, costumes, and horror, there’s nothing I don’t love about it. Halloween has an extensive history with many forms of celebration, but Halloween as we celebrate it today can largely be attributed to the Victorians!
Show of theoretical hands - how many of you saved your baby’s first haircut? Or if you haven’t any children of your own, how many of your parents saved YOUR first haircut?
Hello again, my friends!
Today, I’d like to share with you yet another piece of authentic, Victorian hair art from my personal collection and use it as a way to introduce you to a hair art technique we’ve not yet discussed.
Welcome back, hair/history enthusiasts!
I want to explore more of the weirder side of history with you today by sharing some exciting information about the newest edition to my personal collection.
I have to apologize that this blog will be a bit terse. On Friday, I lost my grandfather, and I don’t feel much like writing. I will, however, use this as an opportunity to briefly mention how hair art can relate to losing a loved one.
Anyone who knows me knows that you CANNOT keep me out of an antique shop. I must enter any and every antique shop I find. Most of them unfortunately resemble a dusty garage sale with employees that know little to nothing about what they’re selling, but in a select few, with an eye for antiques, you can find some amazing treasures!
By now, I’m sure you have all read the headlines: “Queen Elizabeth II Becomes Britain’s Longest-Reigning Monarch.”
Greetings knowledge seekers!
We’ve only just begun to scratch the surface of the rich, but often unknown, history that is hair art.
Good day my fellow hair enthusiasts!
“Man, this is a really cool idea! I’d love to have a piece made with my own hair…but I don’t want to cut it…”
Helloooooo Crypticon Creeps!
This weekend, I had the absolute pleasure of being a vendor at Crypticon KC. This was my very first time bringing my art to a convention, so I certainly had no idea what to expect!
Welcome back hair-raisers and historians!
Part of my mission as an ambassador of this art form is to educate the modern world on the history of these dying, delicate techniques, and where better to start than the beginning?
I would like to introduce you to my artist’s blog!
