SAPPY POST: This last Sunday josh Mikey Madalow and I were at manhattan beach pier looking at the ocean. Josh just said something so simple but it really stuck with me, "look where we are right now. Because of what we love to do, we are here right now. We get to do this for work".
Not that I haven't thought of that before, it's not that I am so far up my own butt that I don't stop and realize how thankful I am to be able to do what do for "work". But in that moment, it really stuck with me because it couldn't have been a more perfect thing to say. 8 years ago I had no idea what the hell I was going to do with my life, decided cutting hair might be fun because my best friend Jay was able to be himself and have fun, so I wanted to do that.
Fast forward to 2017, on a Sunday and I'm in LA to do work for Baxter of California.
So I guess this is really also not just a shout out to josh but really Baxter and everyone involved. They brought me on almost 2 years ago..not because I have 50k or more followers, not insta famous at all, not because I was hitting them up until they hired me, I didn't ask for anything. The people involved saw something in me and they continue to do so. Giving me an opportunity to really show other people how passionate I am about what I do. Sure, I have had my ups and downs with the work involved and sure I have had my frustrations but they always answer when I call. If it wasn't for them, I wouldn't have been in that very moment, at manhattan beach with 2 fellow (badass) educators who are equally as passionate🤘🏽
Vlad basically lets me do what I want lately. Brought it tight around the ear but still left direction and movement. Also some weight behind the ear so a bit of texture peeks out from behind. Fun cut and style.
