“I really enjoy doing short textured cuts for both men and women. This is what I excel at and I have learned that I'm happiest doing what I like. I leave the rest to others. Opening Hair Play has been a wonderful opportunity for me and I am grateful to have such an amazing clientele who have followed me through the years. Thank you". ~ Tara Julian
