What made you start your business?
I started my business because I wanted to provide the people with a quality consistent waxing service from someone who loves people and loves waxing. I worked at a well-known waxing chain as a waxer and a trainer for 3 years. During that time, I felt that even though I was an amazing service provider the time constraints and corporate selling was taking away from the overall experience. People are more than numbers. I wanted to create a space that I would enjoy coming to as well as making a semi uncomfortable experience as pleasant as possible.
How does it empower you as a Black Woman in the Beauty Field?
January 2, 2023 will be 5 years of me owning my business and 2 years of my own salon. I have met and serviced so many amazing people. I have also inspired many people to pursue a career in the beauty industry. I have trained and mentored numerous individuals and watching them go from students to successful individuals in the beauty industry brings my pure joy. As a black woman in this demanding industry who took a leap of faith and opened my own waxing business when at that time it wasn’t Many of us who were doing it. In the past 5 years I’ve built a successful 6 figure waxing business, which has allowed me to not only service clients but to train, teach and mentor up and coming talent. I’ve been beyond blessed and feel that my calling is to give back in whatever capacity I’m needed.
