For me, communication is just as important, if not more, than the service itself. When you choose me to be your hairstylist you are investing in me. I want to make sure I take the time to sit down with you face to face and get to know you before touching your hair.
My greatest feeling of success doesn't come from creating great hair, that in it's self is subjective, but seeing that you love your hair.
Who gets to determine who the best is anyway? Who are you giving your control over to? What gives anyone or any group the power to give out that title?
There is no such thing as being perfect, or being the best. There is no reaching the top. Just do the best you can right here and now and learn from everything along your way.
The clear vision and dream that I had of my life had vanished. And with out a clear vision of what's ahead I had no idea how proceed in life.
Just before moving here I bought 500 fake followers for $2.99. Yup, I'm admitting it guys. I sold out.
Know that you deserve to be treated with nothing but love and respect. Especially from yourself.
The conversation went great, I was proud of myself for speaking truthfully and honestly and into the discomfort instead of assuming, being vague and feeling hurt in the end out of my own lack of communication.
I decided to make a video to show you all that even hairstylists struggle to do our own hair. It's easy when we stand behind you and effortlessly make your hair look great, but really we can only do so much when we can't get behind ourselves.
I was hoping to be fully recovered by now and come back better than ever but I'm left feeling a bit raw. It's as if I am seeing everything with new eyes. My perspective has shifted and I am over stimulated with thoughts. My mind is going a million miles an hour in different directions and it won't slow down. It's an amazing place to be in but the newness is uncomfortable and I find myself wanting to rush out of the process. Get back to the comfortable and known.
In the last few minutes of daylight I was able to snap this picture. With the salon door open and me standing outside I let in just enough light to capture Sarah's hair.
My salon is a sacred space, a space for women to be heard and validated beyond their hair. I have created a consultation process to ensure we are not only hearing each other but we are being understood. We are connecting.
