Occupation: Salon Owner and Hairstylist @lashesandcurlsstudio and Balayage Educator @sunlightbalayage
Favourite Design.ME Product:My favorite DesignMe product by far is the Quickie.ME Dry Shampoo for Brunettes, hands down. Finding the perfect dry shampoo has helped the overall health of my hair, it’s longer and healthier than ever. This product allows me to go longer between shampoos and not use as many hot tools on my hair on the daily. I seriously couldn’t live without Quickie.ME!
My name is Yara, and I am a salon owner, hairstylist & balayage educator. I have been in the industry for 10 years and have loved every second of it!
Helping others feel beautiful has been the perfect creative outlet for my inner artist and it has allowed me to help hundreds of women emotionally, by bringing out their natural beauty. Needing a little bit of a confidence boost is something, I believe, most us have experienced at one point or another.
I have felt that way myself more than I care to admit!
Especially after a life-altering accident that took place in the Spring of 2019, in which I fell off a second story and was immediately paralyzed from the waist down.
My life changed in an instant and the uncertainty of what the future might hold felt like it was consuming me whole.
One of the my biggest driving forces during recovery was my deep desire to return back to doing hair behind the chair and taking control over my life again, even from a wheelchair.
I had to dig deep, soul search, fight hard, push through my limitations and break boundaries to be able to return to the salon and run a successful business as a leader & as a stylist.
Before I knew it, I was back to working a great schedule, teaching the art of Balayage to other stylists & leading a growing salon.
All seemed to be going according to plan until another unexpected occurrence happened. A global pandemic. A lot of the same feelings from my accident came up, but I now knew how to navigate the unexpected a little better!
Being a hairstylist, business owner & wheelchair user all at once, during a quarantine, can get very overwhelming.
The worries and the unknown are often crippling to the soul.
I thankfully have some incredible gifts that never leave me: the talent that lays in my hands & a positive mindset to keep me going. 💞
On the worst days, I remind myself that the power of being true to who I am can't be taken away in any circumstance. I find that with a little bit of makeup, some good hair & a renewed spirit, I’m able to look in the mirror, be proud of being me, & never giving up, no matter what! 💓 #quarantineconfidence
It feels good to know that despite never knowing what life may bring you, you always have the choice to have a good attitude & make the best out of it!
By choosing positivity, self love, acceptance and sympathy, you will always come out on top.
Furthermore, as stylists we all possess the superpower of being able to give the gift of confidence to others & to ourselves, when we needed.... all in the tip of our fingers! 💖
