Inspiring others to Be Radiant inside and out is my passion.
Good Hair makes you feel better on the surface level. Yes we all know that this is true!
If you're Having a bad day, or don't feel well, Dress up! Pulling yourself together with good hair and makeup will give you a little lift instantly. Working in hair salons since the age of 16, I saw this happen Daily. That's the magic of being a hairstylist. Giving people that little lift they need to keep going is beautiful.
Being in this businesses half of my life has taught me so much about beauty.
While outside beauty is something we see our culture striving for in many ways every day. Inside beauty is what really counts. How you feel on the inside Shines through everything you do.
What's inside you counts more than anything else.
Life can be Tough. Life is Tough. But You can Choose to Rise above it.
Be Radiant is Joining POSh
Happy New year Everyone. I am super excited to announce that I will be joining an amazingly talented Team of Stylists at Posh Salon at 5220 Detroit rd. Sheffield. I start on January 8th.
So I am extremely grateful to the Gallery of Hair for the last 2 years. Renting space from them has been the most pleasant experience I've had since establishing Be Radiant in 2011. As many of you know after the big loss of my brother nearly 3 years ago, I literally went through the worst depression of my life. I needed a place to do business while I grieved and figured out what was next. The Gallery provided the perfect temporary solution.
One big thing I've realized during this long soul search is that going through Salon Life/ business Life alone is well... LONELY. Life in my opinion is meant to be spent with other people.
I Used to dream of building an amazing salon team to work with, but rather than build my own (because i already tried that) , I figure lets just join something great thats already established.
I absolutely love HELPING, GROWING, AND LEARNING WITH OTHER PEOPLE.
So I came across a GREAT OPPORTUNITY to work alongside some really talented ladies at POSH .
So starting Jan 8th I will be Renting a chair at Posh.
The Be Radiant Dream is still alive and well meaning.
You will still contact me directly to schedule appointments, have your hair done by me, purchase products, and make payments.
Literally its all the same business wise, just a new location in a more traditional modern salon setting.
IF you have already scheduled appointments with me. You will still have them with me at posh. I will also be contacting everyone by phone very soon.
IF you have questions please send me a text or give me a call.
Thank you SO MUCh for Reading and Understanding!
During the holiday season, my thoughts turn gratefully to clients like you who make my job a pleasure. I would like to express my sincerest appreciation for the trust you have placed in me for all of your Hair needs. Thank you for a beautiful year.
Wishing you and your family Peace, Love, and Joy this Holiday Season and throughout 2019.
Just 3 weeks till Christmas and the salon is a lively place. I am happily crafting beautiful Hair colors for the holiday season. Here are just a few to give you some ideas.
As we see the leaves change into the most beautiful colors for fall. Notice those pretty colors and see how they could play into your Haircolor stye. Checkout a few ladies who have changed their hair color to match the fall season. These are all Colors I've had the pleasure to create.
Be Sure to schedule your Fall Hair color appointment soon.
Fall is my favorite season. I love everything about it. All the rich colors of the season inspire me to create Beautiful Rich Hair Color. At Be Radiant, Fall Color Design has already begun. Take a look at some of these colors that I designed. These are some of my favorites for the season. This should help you get a little inspired when its your chance to design your fall hair color. Think Chocolate, Caramel, Mocha, and Cinnamon as ways to describe fall hair color.
A salon story- for Clients and other hairstylists.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of working on a lovely women in her 80s. I love that i get to work with such a diverse group of people. Really its all ages, from all different walks of life, and all different kinds of styles. Thats one of the best parts about the job. Anyway, she came into see me for the first time. She’s been coloring her hair her entire life a dark dark brown. Well her natural color is a beautiful white now, so that means every 2-3 weeks her white roots start to grow in.. She’s felt for awhile now that she wanted to start lightening her hair. But in her previous salon for whatever reason, they talked her out of it. Said that she didn’t need to. Anyway frustrated and needing a change she ends up in my salon, and we decide to start lighting her hair. I lighted the shade of brown and added soft blonde highlights through her hair. I also updated her cute little short haircut to flow with her natural hair texture rather than work against it. In a fairly simple appointment, I changed her entire look and gave her what shed been asking for, for years now. She was so amazed and happy with her hair. She also does not look 80. She looks like she’s in her 60s. Absolutely stunningly beautiful woman. I wish I took pictures this time, but so much of my work is personal, and taking a photo isn’t always top priority. You’ll just have to trust me when I say she looked fabulous.
The reason I’m telling this story is because I want to make a point to you.
To potential new clients and existing- Im an excellent listener and really good at consultations, and solving hair problems . If you’ve ever felt rushed through the salon and like no one took the time to get to know your hair, know that it doesn’t have to be that way. Consultations usually take just 10- 15 minutes. In that time we can asses the Cut/ Color/ and condition of your hair while also coming up with a plan and budget. You know what to expect upfront. I also work just one on one, So I’m not juggling other clients during your appointment. This keeps all of my attention on you. This helps ensure you don’t get lost in the busy salon. If you haven’t had a change in your hair in while then lets talk. You should be doing subtle changes with your look seasonally. That’s at least 4 times a year. Falls coming up, So If your looking for a little change lets make it happen.
To Other Hairstylists- The reason I’m telling this story is because I want to make a point to you. This little lady got lost in the daily busy salon shuffle. Im sure her old hairstylist was capable of doing exactly what I did. But maybe for whatever reason, she was to busy, or not listening, or whatever the case may be, just didn’t take the time. Or maybe just designed an 80 year old look instead of giving her something youthful… I think we can agree that most people want to look younger. Sometimes we see a mature woman and automatically design an “old lady style” But most women don’t want to look Old. This is true to almost all women. Even a women in her 30s doesn’t want to look 30 she probably wants to look 25 . Think about it. We have to think outside the box. My point is If you’re a hairstylist take the time to slow down and give your clients a consultation. Ask questions and then Stop and Listen. If you don’t have time then be sure to schedule sometime at least every season to give your customers a little change/ update or at least the option to change. Don’t let people get lost in the salon shuffle. You have the power to help them feel so good about the way they look, so remember to use it.
Wow what a full summer this has been for Be Radiant Salon, I went to LA for the American Board of Certified Haircolorsts Summit in June. This was a 3 Day trip that was all about Studying Haircolor. I love these events because they help keep me passionate about what i get to do every day. Helping you all feel Beautiful . I’ve had a very full summer between working in the salon, traveling, and just taking time to be present and enjoy life. So here are a couple of beautiful looks I actually remembered to photograph. I love posting this kind of stuff so you can all see what kinds of colors and cuts are possible when you visit me at the salon. So here is a snapshot of a few of the beautiful people I've had the privilege to work with. Of Corse you know you are all beautiful, and I love working with all of you. Life is more than a photograph, but here are just a few.
