We had the good fortune of connecting with Grace Espinoza and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Grace, how do you define success?
Success to me is defined as purpose, it not in the stuff or financial gain that I receive but in the peace and freedom in what I do. I always ask myself 2 questions before I determine if I’m successful. Do I have peace with where I am and am I free in what I’m doing.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a Elite hairstylist. What sets me apart is the value I add to each and every person who sits in my seat. I do this by listing to every story to personalize each experience. Allowing Beauty to exude from the inside out! Where I am today as a professional is by a statement I received, “write the plan and make it plain” my journey was tough but perseverance and always remembering the plan allowed me to keep going! What I want people to know about me and my brand is that in all things there is purpose and hair and creating that safe place to conversate is mine!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take them on a nice trip to bishop arts district where there are many food options but my favorite is the art and local artist that come out to play live music weather it’s on the side walk or in the restaurants the are jamming out and I love to dance!
