.... A New Orleans born, HELL RAISING..
Wait let me start over.. Well the first part is true, I am born and raised for the MOST part in New Orleans. I've been in the beauty biz since the age of 16. Lets just say it started since I was a little girl, chopping every barbie dolls hair I ever owned. Perming my neighbors hair at the ripe old age of 12, madly watching a 'Makeover Story' on TLC, and 'What Not to Wear'. Landing my first big girl job at a salon known as H2O in New Orleans, which at the time in 2004 was the place to be, housing 90 employees total. Little ole me was hungry for learning, growing, and becoming successful like the top women in that salon.
Made a move after beauty school to Baton Rouge, Louisiana where I completed my credentials in 2008, and learned from the best around for another 7 years...
Until I realized something...
I was SMART, I was KIND, I was IMPORTANT - Lady from 'The Help'
NO but really, I had a fire in my tummy, a inner voice that said, if you aren't happy, then change it. So I did. After buying my first home, which I count as a big step in the adult world, I decided I needed to make the change, circumstances led me to make that change on an impulse rather than plan like our parents always tell us. So yeah, the day I paid my first mortage on my house was the day I quit my job in the salon and decided to branch off on my own.
I did. I succeeded. I learned. I grew. I ran myself into the ground.
Which leads me here. After working and running my studio in Baton Rouge for 2 years, my inner voice kicked in again, she was loud this time. What she told me was I needed a new wind of change, enthusiasm, something that excites me, something that makes me motivated to be bigger than myself and my inner doubts.
So here it is..
But most of all, I realized my clients needed me and I needed them. It's about helping others grow and that is what my goal is.
Not only that, but I want to help other women and business owners, entrepreneurs, house-wives, aspiring bloggers, and bad ass personal trainers have a little touch to add to their personal brand.
