I first met Ann on a blind referral (that is one of my clients referred her to me for a hair cut). Within minutes of meeting we were chatting about all things life, design, fashion, and of course, her amazing hair. She had an easy energy about her, a quiet confidence and I knew I needed to share that with all of you.
Meeting people like Ann, hearing how she balances her work, her increasingly popular blog (Andy Heart) and her friendships is inspiring; a constant reminder to pursue what you love, to push the boundaries of your imagination... I guarantee you will surprise yourself (please note, this is a reminder I myself need on a regular basis).
And so, without further ado, I give you Ann.
