I’ve been doing hair for 15 years. I started right out of high school. To be honest I went to hair school because I couldn’t decide what I want to be when I grew up. 😉
Shortly after attending hair school I got married and I decided that this would be a good career for me.
Growing up in Utah where most girls get married at age 19, I mainly wanted to just have kids and I treated hair as a hobby that I could make a little extra cash and create my own schedule.
After doing hair for a couple years I realized hey I kinda like this. I took a lot of pride in my craft and genuinely enjoyed making people look and feel beautiful.
But as an artistic type personality, I still didn’t understand my Worth.
It wasn’t until I had had two babies and in 2007 everything came crashing down. I didn’t know if I was going to stay married, and was faced with a situation where I needed to figure out a way to provide for my kids.
So for the first time in my life I treated my hobby like a career.
“How could I make the most of my time?”
“How can I charge what I’m worth?”
“How could I live anywhere around the country and make the most as a stylist behind the chair?”
This led me to start educating. And I had no idea where it was going to lead me. As I sat down and edited my first online education I sat back and it hit me like a knife to the back… Holy shit I think this will impact a lot more than I even know.
Fast forward to 2017 and both my husband and I are financially way past the blueprint I even imagined possible for myself and yet that moment still hits me…
Last year I started a program called BMS (Big Money Stylist). In this program we teach both business mindset and of course MY hair extension method Natural Beaded Rows™ (NBR). I realized you could teach somebody a method but to get them to truly make the shift to charge you what they’re worth it so much more than just a skill set.
Often times we stay in our comfort zone in fear failure. I get it… I’m constantly challenged even to this day to step outside my comfort zone.
Only now I trust myself a little more.
I know that if I get a little uncomfortable and commit to changing and moving forward I have an impact on others.
Discovering your worth can be a shift of perspective.
We offer monthly classes in Laguna Beach, California. This is not your average hair class with 50 students shoved in a room where you can barely see what’s going on and you’re just hoping you can retain some of the information and possibly get a photo with the platform artist.
I actually care if people learn something.
This is why even as an educator I continue to change the way educate, thus BMS and was born. If you attended one of my classes in the past I would encourage you to revisit this one.
All of my classes are currently sold out for the rest of the year and we don’t have dates for next year yet, but we have a three day convention (BMSCon) coming up in December with over 150 stylist it’s already halfway sold old…
