learning to use the right products. Personally, I will

continue to pursue community involvement with an

eye on becoming a member of our local community

director at Toni&Guy, Mont-

clair, New Jersey—

“In 2018.

I am looking forward to major

growth in the hair industry.

Personally, I want to sharpen

my cutting, coloring and styl-

film, fashion and editorial and to develop my skills

as a master designer and global educator, so that I

can learn and teach worldwide.”

Day is a symbolic reminder

that we can always have fresh

eyes and a beginner’s mind. In

2018, I am looking forward to

continuing to empower plus

grow the creative humans I love and finding new,

creative ways to do that through our membership

programs and workshops, as well as what we con-

tribute online every day. We are also adding people

to Team Awesome at Passion Squared to help turn

that vision into a reality, and that is something I am

very much looking forward to. Personally, it’s been

10 years since I began my personal enlightenment

journey and I hit a big wall in 2017. Is a 10-year itch a

deeply within and in doing so, I have discovered

some new layers that need to be explored. And

that, for me, is something to look forward to. As I

empower and growmyself personally, I can, in turn,

empower and grow others.”
