2. You should not overly obsess about getting your hair to look “perfect”
Having hair-confidence is a balanced approach. You know that your hair did not turn out as clean and neat as the YouTuber or another stylist you see on the street, however never let em see you sweat.
Instead, you take it in stride because as a hairstylist you are growing and learning and as a person, you know that your hair is a big part of your life, but it is not the most important part of your life.
Your beliefs and values should be more important than any hairstyle. If you find that you are taking a cornrow out several times this means that you need to practice more.
It is okay to fail at a hairstyle; it is not the end of the world and besides, next week you can try the same style again until you get it right.
3. You should not compare your hair to others
If you are hair-confident, you can admire another’s hair all while believing that you still are #slaying. If you find yourself looking at other people with not admiration but envy ask yourself why?
A person who is fully secure in themselves will not look at others as competition, as an enemy or with envy because they know they are killing the game.
It all goes back to believing that your hair looks good on you and you are wearing it well. Besides the fact that I love that Donald Lawrence song, I think this is very true advice. Believe that what was given to you is for you and looks good on you.
In conclusion, You should be secure in the fact that you are a human being with hair and that you are valuable without extensions or add-ons. You do not need to obsess and watch three hours of youtube for you to believe that when you walk outside of your house you will be recognized.
Of course, we have the need to be accepted, so how about you satisfy your own need for acceptance? Yes, accept yourself. Here’s another cliche: If you do not love you, who is going to? No one can replace you loving yourself and none can replace you being confident in yourself. You do not have to be perfect at all of these to be hair-confident, but be proud and know that you are on your way to success.
