There is no Place Like Home
Finding strength in healing my past, discovering Hairo, and simultaneously unlocking my creativity and alter ego. What will prepare me for my next move? The following significant change was destined for my journey. That significant change was transitioning from working in the salon to working from home. I have worked in salons as well as individual suites my entire career and found myself, at times, dodging drama and naysayers. I have also been introduced to some wonderful friends throughout the years, today standing as some of my biggest supporters. Thinking about the average time each of my clients has been with me, I can remember my oldest client has been with me since 2005. While some have been with me since 2008 and 2009. Some of my clients remember Ms. Ree Hot Spot when I worked in the Suites. And several remember me working in the salons. Today we talk about how we cannot believe my youngest is 11 and headed to middle school. It makes me feel good throughout the transitions my clients choose to stick by me. I cannot attribute it to talent alone, but to the experience I give. I know what I desire to give each client, and that is a place they can feel comfort, confidentiality, rest, and relaxation. When you sit in my chair, you are not just a block on my schedule you are a person I care about and strive to connect with. If you come in with a frown, it's my mission to make you leave with a smile. Hairo has performed miracles on many crowns, but also we team up to ensure the person wearing the crown looks and feels beautiful.
Right before the Covid-19 Pandemic happened, I felt my time at the salon becoming shorter and shorter. My excitement about working in the salon was becoming dread. I didn't just quit, I slowly began taking appointments home, spending less and less time at the salon. Eventually, I found myself not there, and I had fully transitioned my clientele to my home. I considered many scenarios as I transitioned, which included the potential of losing clients. Outside of my fears and reservations, I knew deep down that this is the path I was meant to take. In 2019 I fully transitioned from working in the salon to working at home. I have not looked back but continue to look forward and allow my God and Faith to order my steps.
My journeys to Ohio and truly finding my strength placed me here. I realized I had what it took to make the change. Today I feel so blessed that I did and continue to see God working in my life. Working from home has allowed me the flexibility I didn't have and control of the environment I want to create. I strive to create a positive ambiance, and somewhere, my clients look forward to coming to each appointment. Working from home continues to give me the ability to unlock creativity, and I am strong enough to begin doing things I only daydreamed about in the past. This is the BEAUTY U R journey shaping and molding me to inspire and encourage others to live their dreams. If Ms. Ree can do it, so can you. There is time in space for us to do that special thing that we cannot stop thinking about. My transition from the salon to working from home is just an example of how we make our thoughts become our reality.
