As we have built Tailored, we have worked to create a community that fosters the individual. We continue to ask, “What is the story that you want to tell?” What does your image say about who you are? Our image tells a story, intentional or not. Color and cut tell a story of style and preference, as does makeup worn or not worn. But, more importantly than all of the external factors, the way we carry ourselves tells a story. Are you confident in your skin? Are you comfortable with who you are? How does the external impact the internal? What is the inner dialogue you have with yourself?
We are committed to fostering and building something bigger than ourselves that impacts the guests in our chairs and, therefore, the community we are a part of.
Here at Tailored we have collectively decided to commit to growth. We are
committed to growing in our craft, to refining our skill. We are committed
to growing as individuals to be the healthiest authentic version of ourselves. We are committed to growing as a team to support one another and serve our guests. We are committed to fostering and building something bigger than ourselves that impacts the guests in our chairs and, therefore, the community we are a part of. Rebecca has been with us from the beginning. She has worked for us as a makeup artist from day one and transitioned into a stylist a year later.
“When I think about my growth as an individual and my growth in becoming a hairdresser, they are almost one and the same. Our work and our personal lives are intertwined-they shape each other in ways we sometimes can’t even see. Becoming a hairdresser has allowed me to grow in many different ways: communicating effectively, thinking outside the box, stretching my creativity. In an ever-changing industry, growth is necessary. As hairdressers, it is our responsibility to commit to growth in order to serve our guests as best we can. Every visit we have with a guest gives us the opportunity to get to know them better. We get to know their personality and style preferences and can assist them in telling their unique story.”
Growth is hard and-more often than not-uncomfortable. Despite it being hard, we desire growth in and out of the salon, for us as a team and as individuals-and not just for ourselves, but also for our guests. Growth
gives life. And we want a life lived to the fullest, whatever that looks
like to each individual.
