For those of you that don’t know me, I am an extroverted introvert working as a corporate accountant. In a sense, I love social gatherings and one on one conversations, but I tend to be shy in new situations with big groups of people. I also crave alone time after a lot of social time to re-energize. This past year I have gone through so many life changes, including planning a wedding, getting married, leaving family and friends and moving across the country to Utah (homebody over here), starting a new job, making new friends, moving in with my husband, and living the mountain life. It’s been hard but so worth it! I fully trusted in God’s plan and it turned out to be so good! He has provided in more ways than I could imagine and I am so thankful prayers have been answered. I also started this personal blog last year, and that has been go good for me to stay connected to family and friends back home. I think my #1 fans are my Grandma’s, but I love that! I want to inspire people to follow their dreams even if it’s scary! That’s where the growth comes from.
Trust me, I didn’t always have this mind set. I grew up in a smaller Wisconsin town and went to college in the town right next door (Go Eagles!). I majored in Accounting and Finance and continued my career in the corporate world after graduation. I thought moving from WI to MN 3 hours away from home was a huge step! And it was for me, I met so many new people and started my career there. The corporate world has its ups and downs, but I have learned so much and it’s helped me grow to where I am today.
Starting my own business and being creative always was a dream in the back of my mind, but I didn’t think it would actually happen. I made a conscious decision this year to go out of my comfort zone and try something that challenges me! I have been a swimmer for most of my life, so my hair has been damaged by chlorine for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried every salon brand and chlorine treatment out there, but nothing has brought my hair back to health. I used to have thick, full hair, and recently it’s gotten frizzy, dry, and thin. When my friend introduced me to new hair products, I was skeptical at first. I wasn’t sure I wanted to buy products that I had never heard of, but I knew I needed something to help my hair get healthy again. I also loved that were naturally based, cruelty free, 100% vegan, and gluten free. She was also a swimmer with me in college and the products had improved her hair so much, so I decided to try it out. After the first few washes I could tell a difference, but now just a few months later I am noticing dramatic results. I love that you use so little of the product each wash instead of dousing your hair to make it smooth, so the products last much longer. I used to have greasy hair after a day or less because I was using so much conditioner to compensate for my dry and frizzy hair. Now I can go 2-3 days before I need to use dry shampoo (even after doing hot yoga everyday!). I wash my hair 2x a week and I am working up to 1x a week. It air drys so nice, the wave and curls I always wanted! It no longer is frizzy and out of control, and it holds a curl or stays straight when I style it until the next wash. I just do a touch up every morning or add a little dry shampoo if needed. I was already telling all of my friends about how my hair has improved, I thought why not help my girlfriends out and start a business of my own?
I am so excited to face fears and try something new that I am passionate about! I want people to feel confident about themselves and I am so excited to help women and men with their hair.
