A Freelance Career Requires Passion and Persistence 

Many hair stylists, makeup artists, students, and other beauty industry professionals long to be freelance artists. Freelancing offers roads which can lead to both financial and creative freedom. Just think. Your creative work may one day be on the pages of Vogue, or it may be seen dancing across the stage of a Broadway production.

 Live performances, commercials, TV shows, movies, the internet,and other media also provide avenues to showcase your talents .Remember, the journey is not for the faint-hearted. Successful freelancers are resilient, highly skilled, determined individuals who will work 18 hour days for many consecutive months if need be. So,if you want to be free, get prepared, believe in yourself, and make it happen!

 “I’d rather have huge success and huge failuresthan travel in the middle of the road.”
