Trailblazers: West Dallas

The editorial team has a special attachment to our new series, The Trailblazers: Rewriting the Narrative, because so many of us feel that media portrayals of women have been too one dimensional. Today, women are doing incredible things in all fields – from science and technology to finance, law, business, athletics and more.  With the Trailblazers series, we hope to highlight and celebrate female role models, encourage more equal and just representation in the media, and help foster a more tight-knit community locally helping women find mentors, business partners, friends and more.

Below, you’ll find some incredible trailblazers from in and around West Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

What makes Craft & Company so special is how we treat our clients and each other. We are a family, and we feel that when a client comes to the salon, they are in our home, and we welcome them as such. Read more>>

Makeup to me is more than just product you apply to your skin, to me it’s a tool that allows me to maximize how I know women long to feel inside; stunning, regal, royal and beautiful. I am thankful I get to travel all over Texas and bring out the beauty in the women around me. Read more>>

I’ve spent my entire life chasing success, which transformed into an obsession with being perfect, with being the best. But, putting pressure on myself to be at the top of my classes, the top performing analyst at work, the perfect Christian left me feeling completely inadequate. I kept fighting to be closer to perfect but feeling further and further away from it. Who was and what did I value if I wasn’t trying to be the best? Read more>>
