Mia and Amanda / The Fox & The Hair / The Secret Fox Education

Mia says she’s always been the one that has minded the drinks and handbags BUT never made it to the dance floor…. Not for long! 

Mia is a local Hair Wizard from The Fox & The Hair and runs livestream education through The Secret Fox. She says owning a small business makes you good at finding solutions, but cancer is one problem that she wants to do something about. She knows all too well there’s no quick fix and people need loads of support. Mia lost her Dad  to cancer when she was a child and recently lost her brother in law at just 47 years of age. 

Dancing with Mia is her salon wing woman Amanda Ackerman - here's the thing, Amanda can dance, Mia can't!  

Massive thank you to Miss Tarah  from TJS Dance Academy for taking on the challenge to teach us our routine! And a massive thank you to YOU for your support - let's face it! We are gonna need all the help we can get! LOL
