Hello-
I would suggest going to a class first. I then would practice on a friend with conditioner instead of color or bleach to get a good feel for it and to help you with speed of application. Good Luck. It is never to late to learn something new. Your income should increase with this new skill also.

Hi Becky-
Sorry to hear about your difficult client. She sounds like the type of person who wants a whole new look but doesn't want more than a half inch off! I hope you don't let some insecure teenager, that can not express herself and her wants, bring you down. I would suggest talking to your manager if a situation like this happens again. This insures that your boss knows that it is the client that is whack! Why bring a picture to a stylist if that is not what you want? THE CUSTOMER IS NOT ALWAYS RIGHT! I think you should be glad she was not happy. Do you want that kind of repeat business?
