Painting Arizona Yellow!
Candy Shaw and Sunlights Balayage flew all the way to Tucson, Arizona to teach 150 students how to paint with the power of the paintbrush! Gadabout Salon has 7 locations with over 300 employees. Candy was with with her husband, Fred Codner, and her favorite travel necessities: fizzy water and a good book (her current read – Love What You Do by Dana Spinola).
Candy and the Team flew into Tucson to visit Gadabout's resource center, a refurbished church, and set up for teaching, but not before catching up with Frank & Jana Westerbe who reminisced about stories of the old days of hairdressing, that had Candy laughing hysterically!
The Balay Lama's main focus during this trip was to encourage young stylists to follow their dreams and to help them make a reality! She took a page from the pro's listening to Ted Talks on her trip over to help inspire her. Candy's constant drive to teach stems from her motivation to help all hairdressers who may struggle with painting balayage.
All in all, the trip was a great way to bring Sunshine all the way to the beautiful, mountainous Arizona! You can now find Sunlights products & education through our NEW distributor ZHair Supply & Education.
