What do I do to relax: Maintaining my Gel nails. I have an endless range of shades, and ideas for different nail designs. 

Best Decade: 1980's. This decade was most certainly defined by materialism. A lot of bold looks, and fashion labels became more recognizable. I am fond of the bold, chic and sophisticated looks for hairstyles. 

Why I do what I do: Feeling fabulous and confident are two qualities I value, so sharing my ability to let this be seen in others gives me great joy! I strive to make each person feel as though their hair is their most valuable accessory!

What my Co-Workers say about me: Josy always maintains a very professional personality at work, but still managed to let her quick witty comments sneak out when the timing is right! A "fashionista," and very trendy with her own clothing and hairstyles.

Fun Facts about myself: Growing up I played the Baritone Saxophone in an instrumental band, and Saxophone Quartet. I rent one every year at Christmas time so I can play my favourite carols.
