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

Hi Octavias, where are your from? We’d love to hear about how your background has played a role in who you are today?
Hello, I am Mrs.Octavias Gatson! I am alumni of Ogle School of Hair, Skin, and Nails in Fort Worth,TX. I was born in Atlanta, GA at Grady Memorial Hospital but spent a majority part of life growing up in Shreveport, LA. I believe the future of the hair industry has a lot to offer, and I am so honored to be a part of it. As a kid growing up, I learned how to braid hair, and it was then, that I found out that those skills would expand my horizon for a greater purpose. What is so exciting to me about obtaining a career in the cosmetology industry, is that I get to showcase and promote my many talents. I get to be my authentic self while meeting beautiful individuals each day. With my abilities and creativity, I pray that I leave a lasting impression on each client that I encounter. In this field not only do I get to educate my clients, but I get to know them as well. I get to learn all of their strengths and weaknesses when it comes to their hair and help them find solutions to all of their hair care needs. When it comes to chemicals or certain styles; as a stylist I have to ask specific questions, so I don’t mind getting in deep conversations with my clients. Those conversations are important to me whether it’s big or small!
I entered this field to study the history of cosmetology. It provides me with continuous education that will never go out of business, from braiding hair, weave extensions, haircuts, perms, relaxers, natural hair, and color. You can specialize in just about anything including nails, makeup, and waxing. The cosmetology field makes it easy for students to excel in a career and be successful in various ways.
