As a hairstylist, I get the pleasure of meeting new people and creating my own personal masterpieces for all of them on a daily basis. But I want you all to know, IT’S SOOOOO MUCH MORE THAN THAT!
Today a long term client of mine messaged me, reminding me of how awesome it is to be a hairstylist! Just a little background information on this lovely young lady; She has Alopecia areata and it has been something that we have been successfully combating since she started coming to me over 5 years ago.
I went into the salon on yesterday to install her sew in for her. As you all know (if you are in the Baton Rouge Area) it was snowing and sleeting the night before and ice was still on the roads in most areas!
However, I still went into work to service her because I knew how important it was for her to have her hair done for work the next day. I just said a prayer and went on my way! I finished her hair in about a hour and a half, and parted ways.
I sent her a message asking for a picture just to post on my Instagram page later on that day and this is what she sent me the following morning:
This is what makes my career choice worth it for me! Being able to help people and make them feel good about themselves inside and out! I am passionate about what I do and I have always treated all of my clients(or customers) with the respect and consideration that I to myself would want to be treated! That is the most special feeling to me and I am so honored to have the chance to make a difference in someone’s life, no matter how big or small it may seem!
I thank you Akai Smith for being a faithful client and I appreciate you allowing me the opportunity to share this with my readers!
