Growing up constantly feeling like I was being pushed into a box that I never quite fit in is why I strive to create that safe space for others to feel free to be themselves. No matter what that means or looks like. It took severe depression in high school and being too miserable to submit any college applications to lead me here. Hair was like a random leap of faith. Looking back, I always turned everything I could into an art project -- finding the creativity in anything. That kind of expression is vital to who we are as people, so expressing yourself through your hair can be just as important in telling who you are.
