She was seeking adventure and a challenge and she certainly got it at the high-end, upper east side of Manhattan.

Zoë Carpenter
JOICO International Guest Artist

Zoë is a blonding pro, but she didn’t get there on her own.

She was seeking adventure and a challenge and she certainly got it at the high-end, upper east side of Manhattan.
