Here are some BTS video and images of the winning Avant garde wig entry that I made for #projectunleasheddallas at The Discover Beauty Show in Dallas with @state_rda this past weekend. What a tremendous experience to meet so many skilled stylists and to get to step out of my element and try my hand at something new to me! A lot of things I challenge myself with these days ( full disclosure) make me unbelievably anxious because I’m pushing myself to grow in leaps and bounds as a stylist and a person. However I try my best to LEAN INTO the fear instead of cower away from it and the opportunities it provides. I think being transparent about these challenging aspects of growing is extremely important! It’s so valuable to understand that EVERYONE ( seasoned , skilled & novice alike ) experiences some level of self doubt and has growing pains while adapting to new challenges! What I can tell you from my personal journey is that win or lose, succeed or fail, confronting those limitations in yourself is a priceless learning experience. I’m so grateful to have been able to engage with the other competitor stylists and everyone that helped put together such an amazing show or invested their time and talents to making it memorable. I’m very honored to be the first #ProjectUnleashed winner and can’t wait to see the future creations! Special thanks to @jeffdeshazer for organizing and making this all possible and to @danielmasonjones for selecting us as finalists &!popping in and giving everyone encouragement during the prep process.
