Tell us about yourself...
Been a stylist since 1985. Moved to Alaska at 19 with a one way ticket, a Volkswagon Superbeetle, a mattress , 2 fake ids and a beauty license. The adventure has never ended.

I have been behind the chair for 25 yrs. and self-employed for 23 of those years. I have lived in Juneau, Alaska since 1986. I am originally from Seattle. Doing hair as a career stylist has it challenges and rewards. It has been my plan since 1976. Keeping evolution on your side instead of falling prey to it is one of the biggest challenges. It is the greatest gift to be a stylist.

Create loyalty to create cash

I manufacture and distribute my own natural salon retail line. With cutting out the middle man I see a 500% or more markup on my retail sales.

Why is it hard to find staff?

Lack of technical skill is their undoing. Sometimes they need guidance and leadership to go to the next level. Alot on new stylists are not being prepared for the realities of hair.They are being rushed through and lack confidence and commitment to the craft. My new renter did not pass a haircut interview. She commited to me as renter because I offered her support to go the next level. It is more work on my part but it will create loyalty.

Hair Darwinism

There has been a switch in the talent pool. Evolution is taking its toll on the business. Marketing and education will bring the talent out. People get complacent in jobs and have a hard time adapting to change. Things that cause fear or give pause are just opportunites for self- improvement
