Reason I became a hairstylist:
The reason I became a beauty maker (hairstylist) was because I love helping people see all the beauty life possesses. There are very few jobs that are intimate and allow you to open people's eyes to what is around them.
My best advice to a young stylist:
Be authentic true to yourself and true to your being. Don't get caught up in dramas and facades, they won't help you grow. There is more to life than monetary success.Creative energy is free and all around you, all you have to do is open your eyes to see it.
