    Camouflage and Balayage - the blueprint to upping your game with Amy Mcmanus

    Industry icon and balayage queen Amy McManus is talented, insightful, and completely transparent as she shares the exact blueprint she used to up her game and completely reinvent her career after 20 years in the industry. If you've ever wondered what it looks like to have brands knocking at your door, get recognition from top industry media outlets like Beauty Launchpad, inspire and educate to hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers, work behind the chair on your own terms, this episode has it all. Amy didn't start her journey trying to attract any of the industry attention she gets (and totally deserves). Listen in on her journey and how deciding to get serious about social media to grow her business blew up her career and made her a household name and one of the most recognized balayage artists in the world. Forever humble and authentic, Amy is an inspiration to the industry and I hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I loved recording it with her! https://www.instagram.com/camouflageandbalayage/  and grab your best life bundle at https://www.instagram.com/independentstylistpodcast/ or https://www.thecurlgirl.com/ebook
