I want to start by saying thanks to everyone joining me on this new journey of my career. I am so fortunate to be a part of the beauty industry right now it truly is so inspiring and really makes me feel extra special that I get to do what I love EVERYDAY!
So I think its a good time to introduce myself, my name is Stephanie and I do hair. I know I say I do hair seems simple, really basic, maybe boring to some, but it is anything but!! I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2006. Yes 2006 when low rise jeans, chunky highlights, and fake tans were the norm. I rocked all three- and man did I look good! I think duck lips and selfies just really started to become popular too.
Fast forwarding a couple years of assisting and trying to find a good salon fit, I settled down a local barbershop. I FINALLY found my spot. Wow I had a great 10 years with some really kick ass people. I was able to get involved on the ground level with these guys . I jumped on their education team, I was opening new locations for them, even lucky enough to put on a few huge runway shows for them. The last few years moved me to Michigan to open up shops here. I really had my dream job. As the time was flying by I really started to miss being able to get involved with my clients behind the chair, educating other stylist, inspiring the wonderful people in our industry.
Now being a wife and now mom of two wonderful, handsome, fun loving boys. That are 3, almost a year - Boy do the four of us have fun. Most of my days are occupied entertaining them now and I wouldn't change it for the world. I am so lucky to have the freedom and flexibility to make my family my top priority. But still with this I am happy to be back at the salon a few days a week to start building my dream clientele back up!
During wedding season I am filling my weekends with helping wedding parties get ready for their special day. I have been a traveling wedding stylist throughout my entire hair career. There is something truly wonderful about helping a bride and groom look their best on the first day of the rest of their lives!
I am working daily on my business and skills to be able to offer the newest techniques and trends while running my business with positive vibes. I find it so important to build relationships with every guest and its my goal to show every client how much I value the trust they put in me. I really hope if I don't already know you that you get to sit in my chair one day!
This wraps up who I am! LOL now on to the good stuff! I hope to be able to help with tricks of the trade, some how to's, a little bit of whys behind things , and stuff in between. Stay Tuned and again if anyone is dying to know more about anything hair, makeup, or shaves let me know!
