  • I had given up on lashing months ago a little before Covid ...I said I was done although then my clientele was steady I decided 3 months ago to start back but not of my clients came back because they had found someone else to service them in my absence so I struggled for a maybe a month or two trying to build my clientele back up but kept ending up at square 1 I recently booked a session with Latrice. After following direction and carefully critiquing the small things I’ve been fully booked days.
