I Became a Hairdresser Because: Candace Bossendorfer

Maggie Mulhern | October 18, 2012 | 6:09 AM

Candace Bossendorfer, Aloxxi Creative Advisor, came to our NY studios to create a magnficent holiday design for our December issue. One of our favorite questions: WHY DID YOU BECOME A HAIRDRESSER offered Candace an opportunity to share her unique story.

Many years ago, Candace was a top hair model, touring the country on stage or in studio for some of the biggest names in the industry (she even married one!). "I just loved watching them," she says of the style icons. "I truly appreciated the talent. It was awe inspiring." Candace decided to not just watch...but to DO. As her modeling softened, Candace went to beauty school....and look at her now!

In this short video, Candace shares in her own words why she became a hairdresser. We would love to know why YOU became a hairdresser. Please share with us on FACEBOOK: salon
