I have been out of touch in the blogging world lately.
What have I been doing?
I have been meeting brides, training, running to class, and keeping up with homework.
Life has been nothing short of, thrilling.
Learn, take notes, brain storm, apply, learn, take notes, brain storm, apply…
In the four years I have been in the hair industry, I have not learned and thrived in my skills as much as I have in the past three weeks. Being a professional hairstylist and makeup artist also means I am a forever student. I am working with an incredible team, Alison Harper&Co., and I am blessed to have years of experience just given to me. The techniques and esthetic I am learning would take years for me to learn on my own. After my first two classes with two incredibly talented artists, my styling technique soared in experience level. What a stellar feeling of spending hours in training, being able to process the new techniques, and turning around to a day later to apply the techniques.
||I am saying ‘I do’ to this passion||
I believe some people work out of motivation for money, others work out of motivation for reputation, and some work out of motivation for a passion. I am thankful to be in a place in life where I can work out of a motivation for my passion. You know the moment bride looks in a mirror if that is the right style for her. How do I know this? I have seen the difference. When the right style, is the right style there is an indescribable sparkle in her eye. That is the sparkle that motivates me. There is a bigger picture to my passion, a sparkle I have yet to see but dream of seeing one day. It is the sparkle in another woman’s eye…a woman who has no idea how she will put food on the table for her children, a woman who may be selling herself to just keep surviving, a woman who could be a platform artist one day. I dream of the day I am able to take women in need to a place of shelter and offer them training & offer them the opportunity to earn money in a way they want to be earning money. Friends, I can honestly say I do not know where this desire came from except Christ. I have no idea how this desire will become a reality, apart from Christ. I am doing what I am doing because He has given me the desire and He is opening the doors. I am in continuous prayer for the future and where He is the leading me. My prayer, my cry is to glorify Christ through this skill and for this to only be a platform to lead others into a growing relationship with God. That’s the sparkle I am after.
So, what is next for me?
I have a photo shoot coming up this weekend. &a makeup show in two weeks.
I still have SO much to learn and cannot wait to share more of my journey.
Stay tuned. &stay beautiful, friends.
