2012 In Las Vegas

Before moving to Michigan last year, I lived in Las Vegas and worked on the strip. I did hair at the Bellagio for 6 years and then opened up the Aria Hotel Salon and was there for 6 months before moving to Grand Rapids. Because the new year is soooo busy in the salons on the strip and I was west, I was able to help them out at Aria! I have enjoyed all of the time off work spent with my boys, but there is nothing like doing hair on New Years Eve on the strip. I have seen all sorts of things, celebs, drunks, freaks, huge A holes that yell at me in some foreign language saying volume as they pull their hair down flat towards their head.. "What"? but none the less 10 hours and 17 clients later it is kinda worth it... ;) After the long day I still managed to go to dinner with some great friends! oh and I didn't fall asleep before midnight this year! 









When I took this picture I remember sending it through Instagram and it was 8:00 pm AND 76 degrees.. I miss Las Vegas Weather.


One of my favorite long time clients is Jennifer Tilly, I was happy to be in town the same time she was and do her hair!!




These two little southern belles are also some of my  favorite clients as well! They wanted something up and fun for the ball that night!! 







Some of my Loves in Vegas! I am super sad I didn't have my camera out with us this night..

  1. It takes us about 4 hours to get to Vegas and even though we don't drink or gamble I love going for the shows and food. I have seen about 5 of the Cirque shows, one more awesome than the next.

    Wish you lived by me, I am horrible with hair and only get about 2 haircuts a year. Lack of money and laziness combined.
