For Emily, it all started from a box of Barbies. The blonde Barbies had Sharpie lowlights of beautiful fantasy colors, and the brunettes had amazing rock star haircuts. Her parents, despite their frustration in her toy "habits", saw something else; the creative design in hairstyling. She then went on to becoming the official hairstylist of Cascade High School. She later attended EVCC School of Cosmetology to achieve her Associates of Technical Arts in Cosmetology. She took no breaks and hopped aboard a wonderful crew of women; that's us Zubies! Starting in 2008 as Pam's associate she developed her expertise over 6 months. She attended many hair events and classes, taking calculated risks on mannequins, she became who she is today.
