We all have a calling in our career. Some of us know right away and some follow intuition and life experiences.
My career calling was of a unique nature and not something I had anticipated exactly. Friends and clients frequently ask me how I got into this hair and beauty industry. So, I thought about it and traced back to the delicate moments that have lead me to this point in hairstyling and hair extensions!
I started this adventure in my youth. My mother used to cut my bangs so short and then tape them to my forehead to dry. If she didn’t perform this ritual, my baby-fine hair would stick out straight! After many years(and many tears)of dreading those moments, I decided to execute this procedure myself utilizing the famed orange-handled sewing shears and pruning my shoulder-length tresses to a fashionable chin-length style.
The results were a hit as I continued on my hair-lopping spree throughout the dormitories where I was attending college. Any head of hair would suffice as long as I could snip away and create a new look for those willing to trust my ability or lack thereof.
I’ve always had a passion for anything aesthetically pleasing and relating to individuals whose hair has been sorrowfully called “frog fur”. My motivations went beyond the aesthetics. I not only wanted to be creative, I wanted to make people happy when they looked into a mirror.
Combining all of these pieces to the puzzle has allowed me the opportunity to morph this enthusiasm into a 30-year successful career as a Hairstylist. Haircutting, highlighting, corrective-coloring were specialities until I realized that I could not only remove the hair but add the hair as well. This concept lent itself to the new hair treatment of Hair Extensions in my world.
Employing many types of Hair Extension applications has permitted me the knowledge and experience to decipher the best of the best. Great Lengths Hair Extensions and Hairdreams Hair Creations fulfill that role. It is made of 100% Indian or European Remy hair which is soft and shiny. The bonds enable the brush to glide through the extensions from roots to ends without catching and braiding–it has never looked so natural! Curled or straightened, the extensions offer movement throughout the hairstyle.
Whether you are looking for length, volume, or chemical-free highlights or all of the above, Hair Extensions are a safe and speedy way to achieve your dream hair.
