MEET YOUR STYLIST-
Hey there! My name is Brianna and I am (or hope to be) your stylist! I will be celebrating my 21st birthday on October 2nd, and I am the mommy of the sweetest baby boy named Sawyer James.
I have had a passion for hair and makeup for years. Growing up, I was always asking my mom and little sister to let me play with their hair. My sister wasn’t a fan, but my mom loved it! I taught myself how to braid when I was four, and remember sitting in my Kindergarten classroom at story time braiding anyone’s hair who would let me. For the longest time, I said I was going to be a Veterinarian, but in 2016 I did an internship at a vet’s office and decided that wasn’t for me... so I switched to Neurology. I was diagnosed with Tourette’s in Kindergarten, and Anxiety and Depression in 2014. I had always wanted to learn more about how the brain worked and how to fix it, so that seemed right for me. Then I took a college Anatomy and Physiology class and dropped it after the first week and realized that maybe that wasn’t for me either. So THEN I applied to Dental Hygiene school, and was ACCEPTED. However, in January of 2017, I found out that I was expecting a little one in August of 2017. I put my college plans on hold to start raising my baby, and the more I thought about it, the more I kept finding myself repeatedly googling cosmetology schools in my area. It had always been a hobby of mine, however, I always thought of it as a hobby, I never thought it would become a career. Then I came across @pmtsraleigh . I walked into my information meeting with my three month old son in my arms. This was the first thing I had done for myself since Sawyer had been born, and I was SO nervous. “Who goes into a meeting with your potential school with a baby?” “They probably think I’m crazy.” I had so many thoughts running through my mind, my anxiety was going crazy. But the school made me feel so welcomed. Sawyer cried in the middle of my meeting and I had to make him a bottle, I was so embarrassed and felt so rude. I thought that was the end. Still, I applied and was ACCEPTED.
I love everything about Cosmetology, and hope you enjoy watching my journey! - 7 hours ago
