I was so surprised when Chris reached out for me to take over her salon Top Cuts. I heard that she had been ill, but I also heard she had made an amazing recovery and I already knew what she was capable of skill wise, so I thought it must have been a joke.
I was gobsmacked when I saw the behavior of her staff and manager and got to know more about her business model -- it was not the Christine I knew. I quickly discovered the staff felt the same way, and they all wanted the "Old Chris" back. I was nervous she was gone forever.
