There are a lot of expectations for us as hairstylists. almost like we have to be superhuman.
But time has made me understand that it is ok not to be perfect, and it is ok to have regrets.
it is ok, as long as we learn from our mistakes, our situations, and our advantages.
I've gone through many ups in my career, like traveling the world and getting paid to do what I love, opening my first makeup studio in 2011, my first salon in 2015, and my current salon opened in 2021. and But I've been through even more downs, including going through a divorce, the closing of my salon, falling into debt, and losing my dad all within a year.
I fell into a deep depression and stopped focusing on my business. it was hard to find my creativity and my clients felt it. I was no longer hearing, " Never change" because I had.
I knew I had to make a change.
when life happens, anyone could lose focus. but when your business depends on you, you have to be there for yourself.
The truth is I almost gave up, and I wouldn't be the first. There are more ex-hairstylists than there are beauty school dropouts.
I knew this industry was going to be difficult, but I wasn't about to give up what I love for a 9-5 job.
What I learned is you need to focus on yourself first and have a goal.
big or small. whether it's creating more time for yourself, finding your happiness behind the chair, jumping to renting, opening your own salon/studio/suite, or whatever your goal is, You need to let go of anything holding you back, create a plan for success, and take accountability.
After having my salon closed for a year, I reopened and went from 300sf to 1200sf in a different city. I'm now working fewer hours, making more money, no longer in debt, have enough money to put away, and still do what I love most...travel!
Living as a hairstylist doesn't have to be hard. We don't need a second job just to survive. We can thrive, working 3-4 days a week or even less in some cases. Depending on your needs, my definition of a successful hairstylist is one who practices balance, takes time to recharge to give their best when working with clients, and always strives to grow.
it's easy to lose sight of your goals as a hairstylist, especially when it seems the world is caving around us. but I'm here to inspire you to keep going and reach for the sun.
Anything is possible when you surround yourself with the right people and have the right mindset.
Doing hair or makeup is what I live for, but it's also how I live.
it's my goal to help others live happy balanced lives as happy hairstylists, makeup artists, and creatives in business for themselves.
because hair and makeup are what we do. it's not all that we are.
If doing hair or makeup makes you happy, and you want to pave your path, continue to do what you love, and create a life most people dream of, I'm here to help.
