Why I Became A Hair Extension Specialist

Updated: Dec 8, 2022



I moved to Houston, TX back in 2017 with the intentions of creating a new life for myself. I was young, had no money, knew no one, but had a heart full of desires and a mind for dreams. Like everyone else, I followed the crowd and thought my path would be go to college, get a good job, and work until I retire.


I was accepted into the Honors College at the University of Houston and was a straight A student, doing all the right things... but I didn't feel fulfilled. And I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my life.


To support myself I became I stripper at a few of the nightclubs, made good money dancing - just to pour it all into a path I was unsure about.


I felt that what I desired for myself, for my life - there wasn't a college career for that.

I wanted the freedom of time AND money.


I quickly became accustom to the big bucks I made dancing and thought to myself - why would I leave this for a 9-5, salary pay with a cap?

But I wasn't happy dancing either. That lifestyle wasn't for me. I knew I had so much more to offer to the world. But what?


Well, throughout the years I have always worn hair extensions. I remember buying my first pair of cheap clip ins in high school and falling in love with this concept of adding hair to your own hair.


It made me feel more feminine, more confident, more sexy.


And after a few bad experiences of semi-permanent hair extensions I decided to teach myself how to do hair. I learned how to properly apply them, take care of them, blend them, what hair was good, what was not.


While I was dancing I befriended some of the girls at the clubs and began to do their hair as friends do, for fun. And I was good at it. And it was fun. I really did enjoy the art/the skillset/the creation that a good hair extension transformation requires. It was like every head was a new project for me to work my magic on. But not just physically, mentally too.


I saw how these women were instantly transformed in a short period of time - strutting around, twirling their hair; confident.

I loved that.


So then one day, after being at the University for 2 years, I found myself walking in a park thinking about what I was going to do with my life.

And it hit me.


Hair Extensions.


Why don't I start a hair extensions business?

I love it, I am good at it, it's fun.

I could make my own hours, work with amazing women, and actually help them feel more confident and sexy.


I was lit up by this idea.

So I went home and began to research the hair extensions business. I quickly discovered that there is money to be made, good money.


My excitement grew.


This meant I could stop dancing and still make good money, make my own schedule, have a fun clientele, create art, be a medium for someone else's self expression, empower women.... the list goes on!


Off I went building my hair extensions business.

I studied business, marketing, branding, hair, and much more.

It took time, there was good days and bad.

But it was totally worth it.


And here I am today.

Fulfilled.

Grateful.

Happy.


I am living in complete control of my life.

I have the freedom I desired for a career, I have a wonderful community of women, and I am so grateful to help others feel better about themselves.


This is why I became a hair extension specialist.


XOXO,

Violet
