Tracy's, The Final Touch

Meet Tracy, my wonderful hairdresser. If you have hair like mine, then I hope you have someone like Tracy to take good care of you.

I don't use the word 'remarkable' often. I feel it is reserved for those who set themselves apart by an extraordinary talent or feat. Friends, Tracy is a REMARKABLE woman. Tracy is from Vietnam and when she was just four years old, she says an event occurred that changed the rest of her life. Her aunt took her to a salon to get a haircut and perm, and as Tracy sat and watched the magical transformations of the women in the salon, she knew that she would one day grow up to do that, too. However, for Tracy, this would not come easily. She entered the United States at the end of the Vietnam War with a fourth grade education and could speak very little English. She was determined to learn the language well enough to enroll in cosmetology school even though she would have to do it alone. That determination led Tracy to become a successful business woman who now owns her own salon. She treats her customers like royalty and is still learning the language. An exciting day for Tracy is when she learns something new, for education is something precious to her and is not to be taken for granted.

I recently posted some of Tracy's jewelry and handbags at The Green Hanger Shop. Jewelry is another of Tracy's passions and she is a wonderful designer. The black onyx piece is one of her creations. Please stop by and see the rest of her things, especially the cute sequin bags from Vietnam. So tell me, do you know someone who is remarkable like my Tracy?
