I couldn't be more excited to be doing this feature on a blogger friend that I've known…...well…on the Internet for awhile. I love stories like Amy's. She's a go getter and entrepreneur and at such a young age has found her dream job.
Amy is the mastermind over at the cute blog called Art of The Heart. Amy specializes in hair, makeup and has the cutest little Etsy Shop selling one of a kind home made jewelry. It's been really fun watching her and her blog grow.
Amy was sweet enough to collaborate with me on a helping me get the word out on my new YouTube channel. So in return, I emailed asking her to answer some of my questions. Read below to get to know this sweet beauty blogger.
Q. How long have you been doing hair for?
A. I have been doing hair for 4 years now.
Q. Where can people find you and your hair and makeup services?
A. I live in a small town in Mississippi called Tupelo (the birthplace of Elvis... Thank you, thank you very much!). I spent the first 2 years of my hairdressing career training and working in an AVEDA concept salon. For the past 2 years, I've been renting a chair from a stylist at another salon in the downtown area. I work as my own boss and thoroughly enjoy the freedom that gives me!
Q. What's your favorite style or technique to do?
A. My favorite style to do is any kind of fade on men. I love that there is such a wide variety of faded styles because it really lets me tap into my creativity. My favorite technique is probably razor cutting for that same reason.
Q. You so makeup as well, do you like it as much as doing hair?
A. I love doing makeup! I'm hugely into art (hence the blog name) so a blank face is like a blank canvas to me! I'd say I probably like it just as much as hair.
Q. Who's your hair icon?
A. Growing up, my hair icon was always Topanga from Boy Meets World! It was just so thick, smooth, and perfectly layered (at least in the later episodes), I seriously envied her hair anytime I watched that show. Now, I'd say my hair icons would have to be MaryKate and Ashley Olsen. Their hair has always been perfect!
Isn't Amy so sweet! I especially love her hair icon answer. I totally remember Topanga and it makes me feel so old! Thanks again Amy for letting me feature you! Friends, make sure to go over to Art of The Heart Blog and go say hello to Amy.
