Emily HudspethDateline: Bringing the Beauty to You
Limitless opportunities to learn and connect with people is what makes being a hairdresser and makeup artist a unique and powerful position. Having the opportunity to learn something new with every client is a gift that makes me a little better today than I was yesterday. Developing strong relationships with clients has two parts: I believe that you deliver an excellent service while treating the the client to a little something extra to make their day special. This lagniappe, as a Louisiana girl may say, could be a compliment, a listening ear or just taking a little extra time to get it "just right". From formal education to learning by watching other professionals, I never miss an opportunity to pick up a new trick. Completing a degree from LSU in Public Relations and Business was just the start. Immediately following graduation, I enrolled at the Aveda Institute in Baton Rouge. Taking my studies at Aveda very seriously, I earned several honors, including Highest Retail and Service Sales and was honored with the first ever "DayMaker" award by my peers. In 2004, I headed out to the West Coast to continue my education in hair design and make-up. Landing a highly-coveted internship at Kenneth George Salon in Santa Monica, California allowed me to work with some of the most talented stylists from all over the world. The first year flew by and I began working right next to the creative geniuses who had coached me through the intense program. Working at Kenneth George allowed me to further train with Vidal Sassoon Academy, Wella Studios and the Toni & Guy Academy in both Los Angeles and New York City. I had extensive opportunities to work outside the salon on editorial and commercial print, fashion shows, bridal services, special events, film and music videos. My home base is Dallas, Texas.
