What made me become a colorist?
Updated: Jan 26, 2022
Hello hello! One more Monday, which means one more post... and today I decided to go a little deeper on my career and hopefully I can inspire some of you.
I was born and raised in a big city, where being an artist wasn't really something... I remember my mom saying to me when I was 15y that I should do cosmetology school because I had natural talent. And I was, HELL, NO! lol
There were so many salons near my house and the prices were so low that I couldn't see how anyone could make a living of it.
So I majored in business and worked for some good companies. The last one was a giant company and the salary was very good at the time, but I wasn't happy. The corporate world used to make me feel so bad... not to mention the fact that I absolutely HATE doing the same thing all day.
I have a philosophy of life, in which I believe we have to be HAPPY! And my happiness depends solely on choices that I make. so one day I decided to really open my college and I bought a salon that was already in operation. BIG mistake and also BIG experience! (one day I can talk a little more about it).
In Brazil I didn't work much as a colorist. Despite painting pictures from a very small age, I found my great passion when I was already here.
I also had the opportunity of work with some amazing people who inspire me and of invest in good education.
Nowadays I am completely in love with what I do and the power that hair has to empower women. I love when my clients look in the mirror and think they're beautiful. And honestly we all have our beauty and I love being able to highlight the particularity of each person. I don't want all my clients to look the same, I want to enhance their own beauty.
I can say now that yes, I am happy to be a colorist!
What about you? Are you happy where you are? What can you do to make your life better?
See you next Monday
