As I was listening to a recent hair extension student tell me about the lack of properly trained hair extension experts in her city I couldn't help but think of the tremendous opportunity SHE was seizing by taking a class with me. It's the common denominator in just about every success story. The person on the receiving end of tremendous wealth and opportunity says, "I saw a need and I filled it."
If you see you that salons in your area are not providing good service or products - be the first in your area to change that! Nothing markets itself better than a good product or service. Word will get around and you will be successful! In the hair extension business, amazingly, many salons are still only offering braided, cornrowed or glued-in (or bonded) methods of hair extensions.
I knew I could be of service to the hair industry when I saw a need in salons for stylists to learn methods of hair extensions that were without braids, cornrows and glue. Since that time I have produced 10 hair extension training DVDs and done many video makeovers and demonstrations for national and international television. None of my techniques use cornrows, braids or glue.
I've enjoyed a great career in cosmetology by simply filling a need where I saw one. I encourage you to do the same. Even if you're not familiar with every salon in your area, just look around at the people you encounter at restaurants, grocery stores, banks. If you see what I see in so many cities and towns (outdated or just plain bad hair extensions) you can bet your services will be met with appreciation and rewarded with dollars!
If you're a salon stylist, owner or student of cosmetology I encourage you to thoroughly review the hair extension classes and DVD's pages on my website, www.Lisha.com Stop complaining about business and do something to enhance what you're offering to the people in your city or town. Let them know you've got something new in hair extensions for them to try!
