When did you decide to become a hairdresser?

"Happened more than 30 years ago: my parents wanted me to go to college, but I wanted to become a hairdresser. It was not easy for me: in their opinion I would not have been fulfilled without a degree. Their lack of approval gave me a strong motivation. I had to prove that I was able to succeed even without an university degree. For many years, I worked with big companies, I followed their trainings, I interacted with people in the entertainment industry, attending shows as Miss Czech Republic contest. There were written many articles about me in different magazines, I also wrote some columns and I had many employees, but I did not know how to escape from a train running too fast.
