Doing Hair is rewarding and very fulfilling. It is a business just like any other field. To be successful at this career, you must take it seriously.
If you do not have a business mindset, this business may not be for you.
When I first decided to get into the hair field, I was really at a cross road as far as my financial state. I had attempted several times to go to school, but I just was not ready. I really had a different outlook on what the hair business was going to be. I was one of the oldest students in my class. I knew that it was really about sinking or swimming.
I just took it seriously from day one. I attended school on time and I paid attention.
The school that I attended blatantly said that they are
just there to help you pass the state board exams. That's IT!! I really learned only what pertained to my state boards. I learned some other tidbits along the way. One of the tidbits that I picked up is that it takes about 5 years for you to become a professional in this field. I too thought that I could lessen that learning curve, but it did not work. You have to go through some things to really understand the importance of time in this field.
