At the very tender age of 3, my mother delighted in curling my golden locks and dressing me up. I'm sure she later regretted this when, in my teens, I felt compelled to only leave the house once I had "pulled myself together" with makeup and hair - this included just going to the grocery store. I regularly subjected my siblings to my creative nature, producing plays for every holiday on the calendar. Truth be told, it was the makeup, hair and costuming that necessitated the production. I really didn't care that no one followed the script, because I got to dress them up. Bless them for being willing participants!
As a competing professional, I traveled with my partner and his students and found myself with a lot of free time since we didn't perform until the evenings. Helping his ladies prepare for the day was something that came naturally to me as I frequently did my own makeup and hair at the events. Allowing the ladies to be more relaxed before they took the floor was quite gratifying. Makeup and hair was something I did for the enjoyment. Never did I EVER think I would make a living out of it. In 2001 at the fervent "request" of one of my coaches, GlamourPuss was created.
Fast forward 22 years and here we are. I love my work and I love my clients. Being able to provide a few moments of calm, a few laughs and maybe some "therapy" for them makes me happy. Enhancing a woman's natural beauty is what fulfills me. It's going to be a beautiful experience!
