AH Lip & Body Butter was created in 2011 from a swag bag at a Girls Night Out and I decided to experiment and made too much. I gave it away to my clients in my salon, AH Hair Spot, and they came asking for more. My daughter brought my product to work at a high end consignment boutique and the owner wanted to purchase the entire product line. The light came on and aggressive encourgement from my grandmother told me to "Figure it Out". From there, I began selling at tradeshows and craft markets, and the rest is history!
