"Working hard for something we don't care about is called stress. Working hard for something we love is called passion."
Sonya has had a love and passion for the beauty industry since she was old enough to walk. Her family had no doubt she would become a hairstylist when they repeatedly caught her cutting her own hair from the age of 3. Although becoming a stylist has always been in Sonya's blood, she also developed a knack for entrepreneurship. Given Sonya’s vision of owning a salon one day, she decided to go to community college for business education. After completing two years of college, she attended one of the most sought after beauty schools in the nation, Penrose Academy, in Scottsdale Arizona.
Not long after Sonya graduated from cosmetology school, she moved to Seattle where she began her career in hair. After rigorous training under a respected lead stylist, Sonya made the leap of becoming an entrepreneur as an independent stylist, working an average 6 days a week, 10-11 hours a day to accommodate the large clientele she quickly built. After several years of working in Seattle, she decided it was time to chase her other childhood dreams of moving to California.
