ARTIST MEMBER Gretchen Maurer
As a child I was always busy with my hands and carried a little red sewing box with me everywhere I went. I loved making Barbie clothes and doing their hair.
I gave college a try but switched into ” Beauty School “! I was newly married, 19 and the year was 1980.
My eye for “updos” bridal and prom hairstyles became my career as well as making headpieces and jewelry. I was “discovered” at a beauty trade show.
Eventually my skills saw me on stage performing hairstyles on live models, enjoying my work published in numerous hair and bridal magazines and I am the author of two beauty industry books.
Alongside my beauty career and raising my girls with my wonderful husband, I always found time to create!
Today, I split my energies between my studio work and being a social media influencer. I have a facebook group of over 20k stylists from around the world!
