Morgan Dwiggins, The Beautifier

October 2nd, Libra

My favorite quote is:
“The only person you should try to better than, is the person you were yesterday”.  I strive to improve myself constantly whether at work or in relationships.  

What is your favorite quote in life?:
Cooper is my dog that I rescued a year and a half ago.  He is a Standard Poodle and literally the coolest dog EVER!  He even has a mohawk to prove it!  Anyone who has met him wishes they could take him home; he’s a cuddler, very timid and highly intelligent!  If I ever have a bad day, all I have to do is come home and he can make me smile.

What is your hair “specialty”?:
I love everything hair, but I would have to say my “specialty” is color.  I embrace change and encourage it,  whether it is just a little or a lot.  I’m like a little kid when I perform color services — I get excited!  I think that the right color can highlight anyone’s best features.

What is your most prized possession?:
My vegetable garden is my most prized possession.  Growing up, my parents raised produce.  They worked really hard at it.   We spent a lot of our time in the garden and at Farmer’s Markets.  This is the first year I planted a garden on my own and it’s successful!  I was exhilarated when I saw a little watermelon hanging off the vine from our fence!  

What is your favorite thing to do in St. Louis?:
Castlewood State Park is one of my favorite places to go in St. Louis.  It’s so quiet and beautiful! I love hiking and looking out over the river from the bluffs.  Cooper loves it just as much as me.

What is your favorite concert or live act?:
As far as music, I’m a huge Dave Matthew’s Band fan. I love country music and old school rap!  Also, my boyfriend plays in a cover band here in St. Louis, Super Majik Robots. They are so much fun to watch!  They are super energetic, have costume changes, and play mash-ups (really cool mash-ups).  You can find me sometimes on the weekends getting my boogie on during their shows.
