I started my career out backwards. I opened my salon in 2013, knowing nothing about hair. I was a full time elementary school art teacher at the time, with no business degree, and no cosmetology degree. That first year, I felt humbled, clueless, and in over my head.
I made the decision to apprentice as a stylist, and that is when my life irrevocably changed for the better. I found a career where I could use my artistic gifts to make people feel heard, appreciated, and beautiful. I fell in love.
My salon has continued to grow and thrive nearly a decade later. We have become a teaching salon, training and equipping the next generation of stylists. We have grown into a team of leaders and mentors, who believe in lifting up each other and those around us.
I am grateful to have this beautiful career, where I am able to teach, inspire, and create. I am grateful to have my team of kind, caring souls. I am grateful to have guests like you who cheer for us, love us, and appreciate us. Thank you.
In Gratitude, Anna
