Starting September in GA, AL & FL

It’s back to school, back to routines, and lucky for us, back to the south when it’s getting just a little bit cooler.  I love summer – but my hair has had enough heat and humidity for now ;)  All new venues for us on this next run from Sept 4-7 in Acworth, Auburn, Savannah & Fernandina Beach!
