Tanis Johnson, Hairdresser
My name is Tanis Johnson, and I am new to MRE! I would be more than happy to get my business info out there as I am a hairdresser and am in need of some clientele in the Annapolis area!
I have been doing hair for about 9 years now, and I have been officially licensed for 3 1/2 years (they changed licensing laws where I lived). Right now I am doing hair out of my house b/c I'm waiting for my MD license to come so I can get a salon job. I will always do it out of my house regardless of what salon job I am able to get.
Perhaps this info will be useful to some MRE moms and dads out there!
Tanis Johnson.
