Best Upside Down Workout


Aerial and Acrobatic Class — KCAA It’s not easy hanging off a trapeze or getting your body swaying in silks. In fact, it’s a mega workout that will give you killer abs and arms so impressive you may never wear sleeves again. Which begs the question, if you’ve never done a “hammock drop,” have you ever really worked out?

Best Curly Hair Stylist


Janice Pancake Curly hair has a life of its own and is usually not fond of being forced into something it’s not — straight hair. Stylist Janice Pancake respects and understands curly hair. She can take a mane of corkscrew curls that would intimidate other stylists and love on them until the curls are so shiny and gorgeous you’ll never use a flat iron again.
