VOTE YES!!! Call (208) 332-1000 and vote yes for HB139 today if possible. The legislature has got HB 139 completely right. Here is a great recap:

Demo Permits: Idaho is the only state that requires a demo permit to practice cosmetology outside of a licensed establishment. HB 139 does away with that antiquated requirement and trusts licensed professionals to properly practice their profession where ever they do work. This allows them to visit convalescent centers, dramatic production sets, weddings, etc., like cosmetologists in all of the other 49 states.

Hour Requirement: 46 states require less than 2000 hours to obtain a cosmetology license. 40 states are 1600 hours or less. It cost the student about $4,000 to $8000 more to complete in a 2000 hour state and the majority of school owners in the state believe that the 2000 hour requirement is excessive and that a full and complete cosmetology education should take place in 1600 hours or less. This is true even though many schools make much of their profit from the students being at the school and working on clients for the school on the clinic floor. 1600 hours is simply better for the student. I guarantee that students from California, Washington, and Utah (1600 hour states) are completely equivalent to our students in Idaho. HB 139 lowers the hour requirement to 1600 like Utah, Washington and Montana.

Freelance Makeup Artists: Idaho is the only state that does not allow freelance makeup artists to practice their profession. HB139 allows makeup professionals to work weddings, photo shoots, movies and to practice their art. Under the current law even licensed cosmetologist are not able to practice their craft of styling hair and makeup outside of a licensed establishment without a demonstration permit. Even with a demonstration permit you as a licensed professional are not able to charge for that service. When passed this bill will allow you to style hair and put makeup on your guest outside of your salon at a wedding, photo shoot, etc. which is currently illegal. 

HB 139 is a good bill and well thought through. I urge you to pass this bill which favors small business, freelance artists and the economy. It reduces regulation and modernizes Idaho law.

Please vote YES for this bill. If anyone has questions please message me directly and I would love to visit with you about this bill.

Purcell Party

That moment when you see a photo and can't stop staring.  We are messmerized by the images from Brooke Richardson Photography.

From this little guy that melts your heart to the handsome groomsmen... This wedding is perfection. 



Pocatello does not seem like the first choice when you think of a San Francisco 49ers wedding, but for the Purcells it was the best choice.  Christina calls Idaho home and her and Mike love the beauty of the Gem State. MIke attended the University of Wyoming where he played football for the cowboys and later went on to join the San Francisco 49ers.  

Christina has a passion for photography and loves capturing life through images.  Their love story is beautiful and involves the mixing of two cultures.  They wanted to involve their cultures in their wedding as well as have their families as involved as possible. The Purcell Party became a week long event with family gathering for the festivities.  The rehearsal dinner included a beautiful tiered wedding cake and many laughs and smiles as well as a game of football on the lawn.  

The wedding was full of DIY elements and the bride loved being very hands on.  The groom was able to incorporate many elements of his Samoan culture and had his family their to celebrate. 

The Purcells then took the party to the mountains.  They celebrated their nuptials by having their honeymoon in the beautiful McCall, Idaho.  They rented a house on Cascade Lake and spent the week celebrating their marriage.  


Christina says if she had her way she would have met him sooner so she could have loved him longer.
