Our stylists are some of the best in the industry and we want our guests to know just how amazing they are! That’s why we’ve created the J Michael’s Golden Strand Award, highlighting an individual who goes above and beyond each quarter. Kara Biery is our lucky winner of our first award, taking home a $100 gift card to the Bristol. To let our guests get to know Kara a little better, we asked her a couple of fun questions:

1. Choose a movie title for the story of your life. Tripping Over Nothing

2. Do you cook? What’s your favorite recipe? I LOVE to cook and my Grandma’s breakfast casserole is my absolute fav thing to make.

3. Why did you choose your career path? I always knew I couldn’t handle doing the same thing day in and day out. This career gives me so many choices. Every day is a new opportunity to improve someone’s confidence in the way they look and carry themselves! I feel lucky to get to do that.

4. What are some hair styling “don’ts”? There really are no “don’ts” in my book. As a general rule, I say try it all. Always remember to keep your face shape in mind though!

5. What is the first thing you do in the morning? Walk into my daughter’s room and kiss her on the forehead.

Congrats again Kara! You rock!
