B3 Super Secret Surprise!
What do you get when every Brazilian Bond Builder artist gets together on one island?.....can you say #SQUAD?! Surrounded by so much talent, the B3 weekend retreat on Catalina Island was one for the books. B3’s Alfredo Lewis asked BTC's Mary Rector-Gable to join him and the #b3family as a super secret surprise speaker for the event, so BTC’s Mary, Kevin and Haley packed their bags and headed to Catalina Island!
B3 Super Secret Surprise:
Mary, Kevin and the B3 Artists Take Catalina
Such an honor (and so much fun) to be helicoptered over to Catalina Island as the “super-secret-surprise” guest speaker at the @brazilianbondbuilder retreat. I loved meeting all of you and so blown away by how many BTC #oneshot Hair Award Finalists in the room- about 90%! I loved all of your passion and the raw emotion of the moments we shared together. Thank you @alfredo_lewis, Devon and Mike for the rock star treatment. And, Alfredo, a very special thanks to you for the warmth and kindness that is so naturally you.

What started and ended with a helicopter ride to and from the island (talk about royal treatment!), was also filled with so much love, passion and inspiration from every artist. The artists could pick from three activities, which included ziplining from the highest point of the mountain, speedboating through the ocean or riding an ATV to the top of the island. The activities were followed by speeches from @alfredo_lewis, @hairgod_zito, @bescene, @rebeccataylorhair, @bottleblonde76, @glamiris, @mustafaavci and @asilmsk telling their stories and sharing what the support of their #b3family means to them. Mary took the stage to end the night by sharing her story with the room followed by a photo of the famous BTC rainbow with the quote:
“The world is conspiring to help us find our purpose. Never believe otherwise.”
Check out the rest of the weekend told by the influencers themselves!
And just like that, the #b3retreat2017 is over. What isn’t over is the amount of inspiration overflowing in my brain from this weekend. My @brazilianbondbuilder family consistently blows my mind with how passionate and innovative we are. A huge shout out to @marybehindthechair from @behindthechair_com and @kevin.givens who stopped by to inspire (and have a few drinks) with us. We were so honored you came! Here’s to a year of change and growth but most importantly – love and kindness. #b3! ????

Taking a moment to reflect on this weekend and how amazing it has been. Thank you to @brazilianbondbuilder for hosting this retreat and bringing so many talented and like minded people together to celebrate this industry. Seriously can’t think of a better company to be a part of. I love my b3 fam!!! #b3 #brazilianbondbuilder #b3retreat2017
Amazing times with the @brazilianbondbuilder fam. It was motivating and inspirational to be surrounded with diverse yet extremely like minded people. To see the support #B3 has with their sponsored artists is uncanny and I feel grateful to be apart the team. Loved putting faces to names and hope to catch everyone again soon. Thanks everyone working at b3 for the hard work, it’s always good seeing you guys. ????
@brazilianbondbuilder sent us to Catalina for the trip of a lifetime! This weekend has been life changing. Words can’t even explain what it feels like to sit in a room of like minded individuals. There is SO much creativity and passion buzzing around here. 4 years ago I started following most of these artist while I was in Cosmo School. Their passion sparked something in me. I wanted to be on their level and dreamt about it every day. I dreamt about creating the happiness and success I saw in their lives. I was driven to find positivity in an industry that use to be flooded with negativity and competition. I am so lucky to be apart of such a wonderful family. For the first time in my life I feel a true sense of belonging in a group and it’s seriously just fueling me to get back home and work even harder. Thank you so much @brazilianbondbuilder, @alfredo_lewis, @hairbyfranco, and @hotonbeauty. You have given me so much this last year! ???? Wish I could tag everyone! #b3retreat2017 #brazilianbondbuilder #b3 #inspiredbyb3
