Most of my readers already know that I am going to be changing this blog over to a hair and photo blog in the next few weeks. But for those of you who were not aware I would like to let you know that’s what I am in the process of doing!
I have been given the opportunity to try out for the Matrix Spread The Love Tour 2012. As a hair stylist that uses the Matrix product line this is a huge honor for me. When I got the email saying that I moved on to be a semi-finalist it was one of the happiest moments in my life.
My passion for hairdressing has been growing by the day, there is nothing else that I want to do with my life. It is one of the greatest feelings to have some one in your chair and truly give them a great hair cut or color that they are super happy with. As a hair stylist I have really been able to grow as a person I really see what kind of great things I can do for others. This is truly a career that you can give back to other on a daily basis.
The people at Matrix have asked me to answer a few questions in this blog.
What does it mean to you to be a hairdresser?
Being a Hairdresser to me means that I am able to not only make someone look and feel better about themselves, but can also help boost their confidence. I do not believe that looks should matter however, If I can give someone a great cut and or color and will help them feel better about themselves and in turn boost their confidence it makes my job that much more rewarding. I am a people person. I believe that it is true that your hair stylist is like your therapist. I am also there for them to talk and connect with. I know that I tell my hair stylist all about my life and I love when people tell me about theirs. Being a hairdresser to me means that I get to truly show people how to feel and look beautiful.
When do you feel most creative?
Being creative is not only a very big part of my job but it is a huge part of my life. I feel most creative when I have good music playing and I am around good people to bounce all of my crazy ideas off of.
Where do you look to for inspiration?
I think that inspiration come to me from all over from my friends, family, movies, music and photos that I see in magazines and on line. When it comes to doing hair I use everything I see as an
inspiration and then I try to find a way to make it work with hair. Every shape, every color and every sound can give me a new idea on what I can do to make a new style.
What do you hope to get out of this journey?
If I was to be chosen for this journey, I hope to be able to learn from new people in this industry, make a lot of new friends and be able to show everyone what I can do, and what I can bring to the table. I think that this journey would be the opportunity of a lifetime. The thing that I want to get most out of it is to be able to give back to others, to help them remind why they became hairdressers in the first place. So I would have to say giving back is what I want to get out of it.
As I was writing this blog and answering the questions, I think that I learned more about myself and the things that I want out of my life. I think that being a part of Spread The Love 2012 would help me learn more about myself and really help me grow not only a stylist but also as a person.
Till next time,
