Hey there friend WELCOME to my very first blog!
I am very excited to begin something new. Some of you may know me and some of you may not. So let me start by introducing myself, my name is Bri. I am a mom of three, a wife, a business owner, PT (part-time) target team member, scoutmaster and now blogger. Yes my life is pretty crazy!
I have almost no down time I am always doing something. My husband tells me that is when I am most happiest, when I stay busy. I got to say he is not right about a lot lol but, that he is 100% correct!
Here I will share my journey into becoming a business owner as well as other fun things like nail art trends, home care remedies you can do to have the best Nails and Skin you heart desires and a fun mix of some recipes. I don't know how long this will last or go for but as long as I can continue to write, I will be here it is going to be a fun journey.
So lets get into it...
If you are here you may know I own Simply Chic Nail Studio and Spa. My dream was born in May of 2020 and opened in August of 2020. I am going to jump back a bit because as you now know I wasn't always a business owner. Doing hair, nails, and taking care of my skin has always been a passion of mine. I mean my kids have never been to have their hair cut by anyone other than myself. With the exception of my son who is now 12 years old and won't let me cut his hair anymore but he is a 12 year old boy so, if you have kids you may know boys at that age are not to into hygiene. And I mean boys and mens cuts were never my strong suit anyways, so I am totally fine with not doing his hair. Before I went to beauty school I literally had no clue what I wanted to do when I grew up. I worked at a grocery store just doing my thing trying to get by being a young wife and mom of 2 kiddos. As I had said before I always cut my kids hair myself. Well it did not go un-noticed. I would always get asked where I took my daughter to go get her hair cut and, I of course would say I did it myself. Well one day I was asked "why don't you go to beauty school". I had never really thought about it. So I did my research which probably consisted of a span of just a few weeks. There wasn't very many beauty school in my area. I did look at the pricing and pros and cons for getting one license vs a full cosmetology. I decided on becoming a full cosmo because I was 100% set that I wanted to become a master hair colorist but I also did not want to limit my skills.
Fast forward to two and half years later in 2014, I finished school and found my first salon job which was not at all what I had expected. I worked at a Nail Wax and Dry bar. Which it was not at all what I had in mind I wanted to become a master hair stylist and they didn't offer any cut or color services. Low and behold I ended up finding my niche doing nails which was 100% not what I thought it was.
Now fast forward to 2020, six years
