Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel.  If people believe in themselves, it's amazing what they can accomplish.

Sam Walton

The Hairdresser is...

It is my considered opinion that the hairdresser is the most influential person in any community.  When the public goes to a hairdresser, something happens to them  They feel safe, they relax.  The hairdresser knows what their skin is like under the makeup; they know their age; they don't have to keep up any kind of pretense.  People tell a hairdresser things they wouldn't dare confess to a priest and they are open about matters they try to conceal from a doctor.  When people place their secret lives in the hairdresser's hands, the hairdresser gains an authority few other people attain.  i have heard hairstylist quoted with complete conviction on art, literature, politics, economics, childcare and morals.  I tell you that a clever, thoughtful, ambitious hairstylist wields a power beyond the comprehension of most people...

John Steinbeck


If you get hold of a head of hair on somebody you've never seen before, cut beautiful shapes, cut beautiful architectural angles and she walks out looking so different-  I think that's masterful.

Vidal Sassoon


Nothing is impossible, the word itself says "I'm possible"!

Audrey Hepburn


Today I choose life.  Every morning when I wake up, I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain...  To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices- today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.

Kevyn Aucoin

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.


If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

Milton Berle


If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.

Thomas A. Edison


No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.

Robin Williams

It is not the critic who counts;  not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.  The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood;  who strives valiantly;  who errs, who comes up short again and again, because ther is no effort without error or shortcoming;  but who does actually strive to do the deeds;  who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions;  who spends himself in a worthy cause.  Who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt
