La Grande Dame
Ann Bray has won more championships and garnered more honors than you have fingers and toes, but it's her present career that she relishes most.
Bray has won numerous state and national hair titles, coached the only U.S. team to bring home the gold at the World Hairdressing Championships and has even been knighted by Intercoiffure Mondiale for her contributions to the beauty industry. No matter how grand it all sounds, though, it was her fi rst win that has always meant the most to this creative, artistic and lovable gal.
