A Chat with Hair and Makeup by Alaina Bailey
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
When my clients come into my salon, your coming into my home and I strive to make you feel appreciated and welcome! I love to style hair for special occasions, like weddings and girls night out. I also do makeup for my clients and offer makeup classes, ask me about group pricing!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Since I learned how to braid on my Barbie when I was 7 I knew I wanted to be a hairstylist. My Inspiration to be my own boss is to Be free from Retail sales quotas, setting my own schedule and having the control to set my fees so my clients don't feel obligated to tip. The best tip is referrals!
What do you love most about your job?
The feeling I get when my clients love their hair. I can't forget that I feel like I get to chat with my friends and play with their hair for a career.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Tears of happiness. My client hasn't considered herself or felt beautiful in along time. So, when I helped her create her signature haircut she said she felt beautiful and confident again like her old self. She left a wonderful review on my yelp page too:) Love my frients (friend/client)!
