Elijah Palmaffy | Apprentice

Elijah started doing his mom’s root touch ups at 10 years old and ever since he’s been fascinated with hair design. Working in his Grandpa’s barber shop as a kid instilled in his mind that he was destined to be a hairstylist. He loves making people feel beautiful and is excited to get his career in this industry started. Check out his beauty page on Instagram to follow him along on his journey!
