What should people know about Icon? There’s three bathrooms, but you can only use two.
If I’m not at Icon, I’m probably… I’m never not here! (laughter) I’m probably at home with my kids or with my family. We have a cabin up north we visit a lot.
I became a stylists because… I didn’t even want to be a stylist (laughter). This is funny, I went in to do nails and they talked me into doing hair. And then it turned out I didn’t like nails and I liked hair. The end! That’s my story. (laughter) I did! I walked in like, “I think I wanna be a nail person!” Now remember, I’m 18, okay? So I was like, “I want to do nails!” And they said, “Okay… How about you go for the whole program?” And then… yeah. Really that’s true, true fact. True story.
