    Poll: Hello!

    True. This is part of the reason I've elected not to test beyond 1st black. I got 1st black almost four years ago now and have decided that I already have almost too much material to keep solid at...

    I can't really disagree with you either. I was never a big form collector anyway. I just know that I've faired well against other stylists incorporating what I've learned in SD. I don't really see...

    Poll: Soards

    No. I'm not a Mullins student, though a couple of people I know and respect are or were and speak highly of him. I'm fortunately fairly far removed from the fruckus in DC.
