The title refers to a special friend who recently became a United States citizen. Andres is my hairdresser and one of the most genuine persons I know. We met three years ago when he began styling my hair and, as with many of his clients, a friendship evolved.
Born and raised in South America, he knew from a young age that he was born to cut hair. Much to his sister’s chagrin he cut and styled the hair of her dolls. At age 9 he was doing hair for ladies in his neighborhood. As a young adult he went on to train as a stylist and colorist, although for him it came naturally and schooling was simply a formality. Years before trends become popular in hair design they are already part of his repertoire. He eventually made his way to the States, worked in various salons and then his dream … to open his own salon. Last spring he opened a newly-designed shop with a chic, modern decor and state-of-the art equipment. Did I mention he designed every detail? He did not allow obstacles to stand in his way but maintained his laser-sharp focus to achieve his aspiration. Along the way he found a true, lifelong love, created loyal friendships, inspires his clients and now is an American citizen.
The shooting start cutter is from the graduation collection but can be used for any occasion, including St. Paddy’s Day. An assortment of pastel colors were used on this cookie for a baby shower theme.
