hi hello

I'M KARISSA

I BELIEVE THAT I SPEND MORE TIME GETTING TO KNOW MY CLIENTS BEFORE I EVER TOUCH THEIR HAIR. I FIGURE OUT WHAT WILL WORK BEST FOR THEIR LIFESTYLE AND THOROUGHLY EXPLAIN WHY SOMETHING THEY WANT MAY NOT WORK AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE TO ADJUST THEIR WANTS OR THEY DO THINGS TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOAL. I ALSO SPENT SIX YEARS TRYING EVERY EXTENSIONS METHOD OUT THERE UNTIL I FOUND ONE THAT I CAN SAY I 100% BELIEVE IN AND WOULD SAY 85-90% OF WOMEN CAN WEAR SAFELY.

IN HIGH SCHOOL, I WAS OBSESSED WITH THE LATEST TRENDS. AS AN ATHLETE, I TRIED TO DISPLAY MY GIRLY SIDE WHENEVER POSSIBLE AND QUICKLY FELL IN LOVE WITH ALL THINGS BEAUTY. MY FRIENDS WOULD ASK ME TO DO THEIR HAIR AND MAKEUP ALL THE TIME AND WHEN I GRADUATED HIGH SCHOOL, I WASN'T REALLY SURE ON WHAT I WANTED TO DO FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE. I TRIED COLLEGE AND JUST FELT INCOMPLETE. I ENROLLED IN COSMETOLOGY SCHOOL AND KNEW IMMEDIATELY THAT I HAD FOUND MY PEOPLE! I WENT THROUGH TWO APPRENTICESHIPS AND ABSORBED ALL OF THE KNOWLEDGE THAT I COULD. I NOTICED THAT THROUGH THE YEARS, MY CLIENTS LOOKED TO ME FOR MORE THAN JUST THEIR HAIR. THEY WOULD COMMENT ON MY FASHION, MY MAKEUP, ASKING ME WHAT KIND OF WORKOUTS I WAS DOING...THEY LOOKED FOR SO MANY OTHER THINGS THAT ONE OF MY FRIENDS SUGGESTED I START AND INSTAGRAM DEDICATED TO SHARING MY FAVORITES. SOMEHOW I FOUND MYSELF SMACK IN THE BLOGGER/INFLUENCER WORLD. THIS BROUGHT ME TO A NEW PASSION THAT I DIDN'T KNOW I HAD...SOCIAL MEDIA. I MEAN SURE, I WAS OBSESSED WITH CHAGING THE BACKGROUNDS ON MY MYSPACE PAGE BACK IN THE DAY, BUT THIS WAS DIFFERENT. I WAS INSPIRED TO RESEARCH AND TAKE CLASSES ON SOCIAL MEDIA GROWTH AND STRATEGIES. I BUILT MY ENTIRE BUSINESS THROUGH INSTAGRAM, THE HAIR SIDE AND WITH MY "BLOGGER" GRAM. MY PASSION LOOKS LIKE A LITTLE DIFFERENT NOW FROM WHEN I FIRST WALKED INTO COSMO SCHOOL.
