Thanks to @briancooperart I have one of the best TMNT concepts ever. I had no idea when I joined Instagram how many insanely talented artists I would find and that I’d actually be buying things from them as well. But I was sold so fast on this concept as I imagined them being the new reboot. I wish it was. Anyway, got a dope new print to frame and got some free decals too! Excited to hang this. Great buying experience with Brian, Instagram and Etsy. Thanks again! #art#artistssupportingartists#tmnt#ninjaturtles#turtles#illustration#conceptart#etsy
What risks have you taken to get where you are?
On the paper in this pic you see the words ‘Higher Purpose’. On January 12, 2006, I opened my first salon. I was so naive and ignorant. It was so easy to start the business. I think It cost $500. Boom - I had a business. 6 months later I was being encouraged to close it. The salon and I were and mess. 😒
Had someone told me that success would require having a higher purpose and not just showing up, I probably wouldn’t have done it. Why did I open a salon? Foolishness. 👈
It took nearly 5 years for me to decide to truly own that business, and I hated every minute of it. On March 22, 2011, @fringesalonhouston was born, as a re-branded version of that first salon, in an effort to wash away all of the days I spent irresponsibly running a business. It took me signing a personal guarantee on a half a million dollar lease for them to give me the space we moved into. A new build, $25,000 to my name, two kids, and two more very shortly on the way. 👶
That’s the first insane risk I took as a business owner. And when I look back at what it was that made me make that choice, all I know is that I wanted somewhere where people could grow in a different way than what I had experienced. That higher purpose helped me make a decision that has changed the course of so many lives. It’s also the only reason I haven’t quit yet. 👆
Over years that purpose has grown and deepened, now involving the growth of an entire industry. Our ability to take the risks that will be necessary to achieve great things will require a higher purpose. It doesn’t have to be poetic or impressive, but it has to exist in order for this thing not to eat you alive. 📋
What are you breathing for? And if you haven’t figured it out yet but you’re tired or thinking about quitting, stop everything you’re doing. Sit and complete the sentence ‘If anything were possible, I would want to...’ ❔

just a quick bit of nightly real talk here and a few things to remember! .
* with winter coming and the weather changing, it’s important to make sure we’re using good products for our dry (especially dry in Idaho) hair!
* toner isn’t permanent and everyone’s hair holds color/lasts different. make sure to be using a purple shampoo or schedule regular tones to stay fresh!
* stress can cause hair loss. new medications can cause hair loss also! letting your stylist know about any changes is always helpful for us. . .
ps- rooting with @kenraprofessional 7na + 8na, we used purple shampoo only for her blonde. one of my fav tips for color melting with no toner is using conditioner through the ends so it doesn’t get splotchy or leave harsh lines! xo
It is always a big deal when a friend decides to take you as a subject of their art. @ladysilvrene does really lovely watercolors of people & mandala art (among other talents)- they do commissions! You can understand how flattered & honored I was to be sent a message that they had taken time & energy out of their day to create something from me. MK is a wonderful artist & I encourage you to checkout & enjoy their art in whatever way you can.
I popped into Sola Salons today to visit my sweet friend @amylynn_hairartist! If you don’t follow her, do yourself a favor and DO IT! She’s an incredible stylist and influencer. She’s going places and I can’t wait to see it all unfold! #keepwacowacko#artistssupportingartists#wacohair
Remember loves, it costs $0.00 to be kind. In other words, don’t be a dick 🙅🏻♀️🍆 As World Kindness Day comes to a close, remember that we can all choose kindness every day. We need it loves. Our communities need it. Our country and our world needs it. Let’s raise the vibrations of love + kindness in all that we do. Grateful AF for all you kind humans. Thank you for showing the world what compassionate leadership looks like. Sweet dreams courageous + kind humans. We love you. ❤️
