I had the pleasure of taking a class by the legendary Martin Parsons. For those of you that don’t know, he is known in the industry as the BEST special occasion stylist. It was inspiring to see his work and learn new techniques right here in Chicago! Excited to try some of my new skills on upcoming brides and prom girls!
