Guy Tang #Mydentity

Another trip to California’s Central Valley not only means seeing cute cows and smelling cow poop, but it means I get to play with new colors on my colleagues hair.  In this blog I’m going to walk you through my first time using Guy Tang’s #Mydentity and of course sprinkled with a little Kenra Color. Carla and I go to Bakersfield, CA about once every 3 months, mainly to do education and spread the Kenra love.  Aside from visiting fun salons and the cool sight seeing that the Central Valley has to offer, we always plan on retouching her hair after a long day in the field.  I like to call this #hotelhair because, you know?  We do her hair in the hotel bathroom like any other professional stylist on the road.  HA!
