Every day we have a choice. We can support an up and coming podcaster, try a new family-run restaurant, join a boutique gym started by a local fitness champ or we could keep giving away our money to the handful of giants who already control so much of our commerce. Our daily decisions impact the kind world we live in; if we want a world where small businesses are growing and artists and creatives are thriving then we should support them with our time, money and attention. We’re proud to highlight inspiring creatives and entrepreneurs each week in Hidden Gems series. Check out some of Far North Dallas’ gems below.

I’d like to think my lifestyle/career choose me at a young age; I’ve never been one for sports or sitting in an office for hours having someone tell me what to do and when to do it. At the age of 11 (I believe)I told my stylist I was going to be a hairstylist when I grow up. I remember sitting in my room playing “salon” with my doll teaching my self how to do a cornrow.

I want couples to feel safe talking to me about themselves, their background, family dynamics, and vision for a wedding. I want them to know that I see them for who they are, and celebrate them and their love for each other. I am motivated by the conviction that all people are equal but different and that all love should be treasured. Read more>>
