Ames' passion for hair started at a fairly young age like many hairdressers. She always had a creative flair for hair and enjoyed whenever her friends allowed her to do their hair. Many summers in her teens were spent at camp doing her friends hair, often wild or fun colors, sometimes to the disapproval of some of their parents. By the end of high school she was decided that she would attend Cosmetology School, not to anyone's surprise. Since then she has enjoyed the diverse field and it's constant changing of trends and techniques, but most of all she loves being around people, and wants every customer to become a friend.
