Within two weeks they were studying at a hairdressing school, despite the fact that, for example, Armando was an accountant by profession. Nothing could with the energy and will of this beautiful pair of Cubans. They studied while working in a Latino coffee shop in Hialeah, until a year later they finished preparing and obtaining an official permit to practice as hairdressers.
