To follow in your footsteps, a woman would have to: Really love this business and get involved in her professional beauty associations, network with her fellow professionals; go to a lot of classes and shows, and share.
The next change to my personal style: Who knows? I like to go with the creative flow.
Reading: Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter and Hunger Games, a teen book that was required reading for my daughter’s school. At the end of a long day, there’s nothing like a little escapism.
Playlist: “Left Behind” by the Spring Awakenings Broadway Cast; “The House that Built Me” by Miranda Lambert. Whenever I need a lift, Latin music!
Important client experience: Our salon has always encouraged clients to tell us about beauty services they have researched or are interested in. In response to their suggestions, we have brought on a non-ammonia color line and high-end eyelash extensions.
Every day, just for you. I exercise and read.
Working on: A small remodel of the salon. I am spreading it out over two years because of the economy. We have to get ready for the upswing.
