"My best friend and I were frustrated that no stylist could clearly see or carry out our teenage hair visions... so we did each other's hair. We would set up shop in the bathroom of the "party house" and people would come find us. We kept a makeshift kit of the essentials: clippers, combs, scissors, some Sally's bleach and developer, and a few shades of manic panic. We colored hair purple, trimmed mowhawks, and cut the symmetry right outta your hair. We used to joke with each other that if all else failed, we could always go to cosmetology school. After a little bit of college and whole lot of traveling, that's exactly what I did"
