1.9 // Looking Different. Also, David Bowie.

Jessica Weckherlin Boyk is a rad hairstylist from William Edge Salon in Arlington, TX, born with a port-wine stain birthmark on the right half of her face. Overcoming bullying, figuring out there is more to who you are than what you look like, and deciding what kind of role model she wants to be have given her an interesting perspective on true beauty. I especially love when she shares her advice for young girls growing up looking different than those around them. Some adult language. Enjoy!
