Tiffany Porter I remember my first one in school! I'll never forget, she was this REAL picky, intimidating older lady getting a trim and style. I was thinking, "If you are this picky, why would you come to a school?" I was sooo nervous....but, won her over that day! She was so impressed she requested me every time she came in until I graduated! She became a very supportive person to me. She would followed me to a salon but it would have been an hr+ drive for her.
Zach Hairborn Schneider Mine was a 4 year old boy while in hair school... He sat in the chair as if he was on a mechanical bull, one helluva moving target. As I cut his hair, the mom kept saying "shorter shorter".... And she would not let me use clippers on him. Went from a Beatles shag to nearly a 1 guard length. This cut took me a good 2 hours... Horrible!
Shannon Steele Yes yes and I messed up his fade but he didn't care. I was so grateful.
Leslie Kay Rees My friend was my first client! I never realized just how curly her hair was until that day. Wow. We couldn't blow dry and style without charging more so she left with it wet. After she styled it at home she called me and asked if she was suppose to have a section in the back 3 inches longer than the rest of her hair! Haha she came back in and I fixed it. I still do her hair and we still talk about that!
Adriana Serrano I can not believe, to this day, how fearless I was. I figured at the end of the day if I messed up I would learn how to fix it. (Mostly with color) I took on anything they gave me. I seriously went to bed thinking about color, and woke up thinking about color. Every where I went I thought about what formula that color was... I was and still am a color geek!! I geek out on it! I could see the same formula twice and be just as excited about it I was the first time. I even have a tattoo now with two tint brushes that says I dream in color..... if this behavior is all bad I don't want to be right!.... My first color client had no idea, and brought friends. I was doing something right!! :-)
Gail Sanderson Gary knew it was my first day behind the chair after assisting for 3 months and a 4 stylist walkout of a 6 chair salon and I was only in beauty school for 2 months! He tipped me $50. As soon as he got home he called and requested a cut with me for his son. So my first day I had my first request...24 years ago!!
Travis Hite 4 hour perm on an older woman named Lois. Hair cut and perm. Turned out great but I got her entire back soaked while rinsing and ended up blow drying her back before she left. I still have the sales ticket.
