Wow, this weekend was the absolute highlight of my career. @sonyadove
has been my hero from the first time I saw her as a young hairdresser. I have always held her up as the world’s most fearless and talented hairstylist, in my eyes.
Being able to personally work with her hands-on, and even being asked to assist on her stage is the highest honor.
I have heard that sometimes meeting your hero’s can be disappointing. Sometimes they aren’t always the person we’ve built them up to be or what the media portrays, but Sonya is more than the industry leader I thought of her as. She is kind, free-spirited, hard-working, intelligent, honest, and humble. This woman lets herself be vulnerable, to show other women and men it’s ok to be yourself. Everyone is unique and we all have strengths and weaknesses. Life is not a race. There is no imaginary scale that weighs your worth.
I wish I could’ve hugged this woman a thousand times. I will always carry this experience with me throughout my life. Thank you, Sonya, you are so loved by many. I hope to see you again soon 💜
