Try 25 different hairstyles!
It all started when I would do my friends hair for dances like homecoming or prom, and I realized I had kind of a talent for styling hair. I actually have so much fun trying out new ideas and seeing how they turn out. I’ve styled hair for many friends for weddings, dances, and big events and actually made some great friends in doing so.
You know how infamous it is that people gossip with their hairstylist? I totally get it because you are just sitting there and you have to be still while unable to really do anything else. However, I don’t think it is so much gossiping as it is chatting and getting to know each other. Yes, there is venting but it is really about relaxing and getting things off of your mind. It is impossible to not get well acquainted in these rolls. In fact, I have actually made some good friends because of styling.
One of my friends set me up with doing her friends bridesmaids hair for her wedding. I ended up staying for the wedding and becoming good friends with the bride and bridesmaids because of doing their hair. We are all still close and see each other for baby showers, holidays, and birthdays.
Last year, I styled a brides hair who is the daughter of one of my regulars. I did it as a wedding gift and his daughter and I got more of a chance to bond and grow our friendship. We stay in touch and she and her hubby are expecting a baby soon!
Since this is something I enjoy doing and I am decent at, so many people have suggested I go to cosmetology school. It has crossed my mind, but I am not sure if it is the right fit for me as a career. I really do enjoy trying new styles on myself and others for events and things, so it will be fun adding this to the challenge: 25 different hairstyles on myself or others.
I can’t wait to show you all the outcomes!
