Hello everyone, welcome back and happy Thursday!
First, we’d like to send our best regards to those affected by Hurricane Florence this past week. We hope that y’all are safe, and experienced minimal to no damage during this trying time.
This week we’re going to be starting our “What’s Your Why” series, in which we’ll be giving you an introduction to each of our stylists/team members, and giving some insight as to what led us to do what we love.
The Stylist: Shelby Lace
Q: What made you decide to go to school for Cosmetology?
A: I actually discovered my passion for Cosmetology in high school! I was in theater and was fortunate enough to have multiple opportunities to help with hair and makeup for a few of our productions, and learned how to do special effects makeup in class. After going to college for 2 years, I decided that it was time for me to turn my longing into action and pursue my passion thus making the switch to cosmetology school!
Q: What joy did you want to bring to clients after upon receiving services from you?
A: The joy that I want to bring to each client after receiving services from me, is the feeling of “Wow, I look and feel like an enhanced version of myself!” There’s nothing more rewarding to me than knowing someone feels comfortable in their own skin, and it’s important to me that they know that their beauty was there all along! We simply enhance the canvas we are given.
Q: Why do you enjoy what you do?
A: Call it cheesy if you must, but I honestly enjoy what I do because I know that I am doing something to bring someone happiness. As I said before, nothing makes me feel better than seeing someone look at themselves in a mirror after and watching a huge grin appear on their face! I love it!
Q: How are you perfecting your craft?
A: I am perfecting my craft by keeping myself as immersed in the beauty industry as possible! Whether it be reading articles/searching Instagram hashtags to find out the latest trends, or reading and watching the materials given to me by our amazing owner and lead stylist, I like to try to keep myself in the know! Practicing different styles in my down time helps as well.
We hope that you enjoyed learning a little bit more about our stylist, Shelby Lace, and be sure to keep an eye out for the next installation of our Stylist Spotlight Series: “What’s Your Why?”!
