What in your opinion is the most rewarding thing about working as a hair stylist?
My clients are amazed and happy with the work that I deliver.
When you meet that customer that has not had a great experience with a previous stylist, how do you make them comfortable while in your chair?
I always try to build a relationship with my clients by talking with them gently, offering a cold beverage, listen to what look they are looking for and make sure I achieve the look they want.

Make sure they teach different techniques on braiding and weaving and anything that is in the beautician field.
