Hair-Raising Battle

Posted on: June 18th, 2019 by Elaine Lord No Comments

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic our 2020 Hair-Raising Battles have been cancelled! Many stylists & barbers are heading back to work and concentrating on adapting to the new norm. Learning to make new changes and keeping our clients safe is number one priority. We are in this together! Stay Safe!

Guest SpeakerBlake Jones was always too this or too that; he was never “just right” in society’s eyes.  Once he chose to get right with himself, Blake’s life started to become rather lonely….because let’s face it, society is a tough critic and Blake definitely has always gone against the grain. Younger blake was often quite confused why so many people tormented and teased him.  After some really sad, dark teenage days, Blake chose to dive deeper and by doing so, he finally found the right people to call friends and life became A-okay!  Blake has learned during his journey that no matter what you think about yourself, your reality will match and too many people think the wrong things about themself.  Blake’s big mission is to spread good vibes and good composure.
