MY HAIR STORY
My name is Felixia Barias and I have been a licensed Cosmetologist since 2007. I have had about 8 years of haircutting experience since I received my license in 2007. Before attending beauty college, I had no idea what my future of working was going to look like and was fortunate enough to attend a trade school and academic ones.
I attended Sacramento State University and University of La Verne. My academic experience had led me to several human service jobs but realized later on that I wanted to continue to cut behind the chair.
I learned that being a Cosmetologist has given me an element of artistic expression that I have been missing during my other work experiences. I treat cutting hair like molding a clay because its like creating a sculpture for me. Now in my thirties, I have come to the conclusion that the hair industry is where I want to be.
TO SERVE OTHERS
I want to help people because I want to give value to others. I believe that giving value back to the community will enhance our well-being as individuals. I want to help individuals value their craft and their personal development as they continue their careers as Cosmetologists. Also, I want to help people because it makes me feel good.
Many times when students graduate from their beauty colleges, they are pretty much on their own when it comes to looking for work and buying their own equipment and supplies. Now that individuals have graduated from school, there is so much more to learn about hair outside of their respective beauty colleges.
In today’s world, there are many platforms that many people use to learn about their craft, but many times its just information overload without catering to the individual.
The purpose of this website is to make choosing professional clippers easier for Cosmetologists The goal of the website is to create a space where I can share my experiences as a Cosmetologist and my experiences using and shopping for clippers. This site will also be a platform where other Cosmetologists can give feedback on their preferred clippers to work and improve their craft.
