People often ask me what is my favorite style?
I love all styles especially when it fits my check list below:-

  1. A style that works from head to toe.
  2. Enhances the clients features, creating an oval face shape.
  3. Fits the lifestyle and personality of the client.
  4. Something within the design that makes it unique and special.
