you exactly what she is looking for. You have to
have the ability to truly listen and hear the things
that are important to her." Sonya attends
educational classes as often as possible for
inspiration and new techniques. She believes "there
is always more to learn". Currently she works with
stylists from all over Berkshire county, including
Mark Johnson, the owner and top stylist at Seven
