Tobie Stark, Dallas, TX

Tobie’s rainbow colored hair and dramatic makeup provoked teasing and belittling when she was growing up, but she says the ridicule also pushed her to explore her passion which has always been dramatic hair and makeup. “I am an artist and the face and hair are the canvas I work with to smash the standards and change the idea of what’s beautiful,” she says. Tobie says that cosmetology school is only her first step in creating a career as a stylist and color expert who inspires others to feel their beauty and acceptance, regardless of conventional beauty definitions.
