In 2012, not long after receiving my Cosmetology license, I had the amazing privilege to be a semi-finalist for RAW Artists. That’s when I knew I had made the right career choice.
I never really knew what I wanted to do. I knew that I was artistic, but I was also very athletic. I knew I loved doing my friends’ hair for dances, but never really thought of it as a career path. When I returned from my year abroad in Germany, it hit me – I wanted to do hair for the rest of my life.
I spent even more time doing hair for special events and functions while there. My artistic side took over. When I returned, I obtained my cosmetology license from The Paul Mitchell Academy, and began working in the salon business right out of school. I had an amazing support system that helped me every step of the way. When looking for a salon that had the infrastructure and company beliefs to support its stylists with continuing education, product knowledge, motivating promotions and phenomenal clients, I chose Nevaeh. I believe a support system, both at home and at work, is the backbone of any career. It’s necessary to always stay inspired and motivated.
My favorite part of being a stylist is hair cutting. Understanding angles and how they affect a haircut just makes sense to me. Seeing a client leave happy and feeling beautiful is the ultimate reward.
