Watch the documentary HERE.
LET’S CREATE A DIALOGUE ABOUT THIS❗️
This young lady is using her God given talents to feed her family just like you and I (Hair-Braiders) But in some states in this jacked up world we live in, you must be a licensed cosmetologist in order to do so. When of course they wouldn’t teach you a damn thing about braiding or protective styles.
THIS IS THE GOVERNMENTS WAY TO MONOPOLIZE WHAT THEY CAN.
BUT THIS IS WHY I TELL ALL MY STUDENTS TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF YOUR STATE LAWS ON PRACTICING MY TECHNIQUES❗️ I would hate for this, (be it unfair), to happen to YOU ❗️I myself have had GA’s secretary of state visit me when I worked out of my home, by the way of a disgruntled patron 🙄... It has happened to the best of us!
Although you’ve tried your best, there are some people you just can’t please. But then you realize that’s their MO. You're told how terrible all of their prior hairstylists have been, naming everyone they’ve been to since birth 😩...🤔 But then some of the stylist named are some of the best in their game tho 🧐🤨.... So some of you may have noticed the questionnaire on my site and if you want to know Why!...... it’s to screen my clients 🙌🏾.... I just can’t deal with the mess!
I reserve the right to service or deny service and preserve my peace from the headache of being scammed for a free or discounted service 😩. Now don't get me wrong, I take full responsibility if I am to blame. Buuuuuut since my perfectionist complex won't allow me to give less than my very best every time to all of my clients, whom I like to call my "Walking Billboards," that's a rarity.
But listen there is nothing wrong with feedback or even criticism. Let it help you catapult forward from them. Accept them as lessons learned and create solutions to better move forward next time. But what you don't do is take it personal! Look at it from a less emotional stand point, as an indication of what changes are needed for either the betterment of your client relationships or your sanity ....LOL
I believe that was a quick rant and Business Lesson 😳 ANYWHO
Thankfully I am a woman that does thorough research on anything I do. So when they came knocking I was ready❗️ They said that I’ve been accused of operating a salon out of my home. In which I replied that I don’t wash hair etc. and that all I do is braiding. Which I learned from my previous knowledge through Beauty Professional colleagues of mine that you have the right to braid with or without a license and the right to perform said business(es) in a commercial or residential building(s) for money in the State of GA, Which made me well within my rights and only warranted a written statement for their records.
Do you know your State Laws in the (a fore)mentioned? TELL US WHAT ARE THEY AND WHAT CITY & STATE? And what are your thoughts?
(LIKE WHAT AND HOW SHALL WE MAKE CHANGE)
