As Michelle Obama once said, “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish.” The Darling team believes that as woman we should stand up for each other, help, grow and nourish each other.
The Darling Hair Exceptional Woman Awards were exquisite, extraordinary, stylish and empowering, just like the women being celebrated.
