Student Spotlight: Alyssa

We had the pleasure of catching up with Salon Life student Alyssa and getting to know her a little bit more. Alyssa is not only a talented stylist but is also incredibly humbled and easy going. Alyssa likes to start the day by sipping on a cup of coffee in her jammies breathing in the beauty of life. A perfect day for Alyssa would include roaming around town with friends having a great laugh, ending with a musical jam sesh! Here is a little peek into what I got to learn about this fun loving gal.
