It was an honor to attend both the student and professional finals. As a professional hairstylist and a beauty writer, it was an inspiration to watch the magic unfold in the preliminary rounds, especially knowing the outcome of the finals and what it took to get there! I met so many talented people in Vegas, it made me proud to be a member of the beauty profession. I hope to go back next year
You can see why Deirdre felt honored and excited to be a part of this beauty competition.
