We had the good fortune of connecting with Victoria Beasley and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Victoria, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Honestly, I didn’t really have a thought process when I first started my business. I just knew that I LOVED doing hair and making other women feel beautiful and happy with they see their hair. Over time I started to put more thought into branding and understanding what I specialize in. Staying in that lane and mastering it to the best of my ability, every single day is still a learning process for me.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
For me I take so much pride in my work and customer service is a HIGH PRIORTIY to me. I love for my clients to feel relaxed and know that their hair is in good hands. One thing that sets me apart from one I’ve been told from clients is my spirit. I’m being so honest when I say this but from my time in cosmetology school to current every client that has sat in my chair has rebooked, all but ONE in my 9 years doing hair professionally. I truly value my clients and listen to their hair care wants and needs. It hasn’t been an easy road between life, being a mom of two and running a business things can get extremely overwhelming. Putting GOD at the forefront of my business and the decisions I make keep my grounded and going forward, I just PRAY and have FAITH as small as a mustard seed that it will all work out for my good. I want my clients and future clients to know that I will ALWAYS care for their hair as if it were my own. I love being their hairstylist, therapist, and sis all in one when they walk into the salon. It’s always a good time when you sit in my chair and I make it my mission to end your time at the salon with a smile on your face when I turn you around to that mirror.
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.
Oooowww… listen I absolutely love food especially BRUNCH lol we do a day in downtown Dallas and or uptown. Some great restaurant’s for dinner Del Frisco’s, Perry’s, Ocean Prime, etc. Some great brunch spots Sixty Vines, Moxies, oh and The Star in Frisco has some really cute spots. We’d definitely go to some wine tastings, sip and paint places are always fun. Go Karts or Top Golf as well, drive in movies are a must as well. Its so much to do here it’s never a dull week or weekend.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
As mentioned I’ve always enjoyed doing hair, from elementary school to high school. I was doing my friends hair lol but I never thought I could make a business of it, I guess I was just underestimating myself. It wasn’t until I had my daughter that I decided to take it seriously, and if I’m being honest it was me noting wanting a lot of hands in my child’s hair. In cosmetology school there was on instructor I had by the name of Mrs. Robin Hudson, she’s most definitely my mentor, second mom, hair angle etc. lol that woman has taught me so much from the classroom to just dealing with LIFE she’s mostly been a praying warrior. Also my mom Tonnie along with my close friends, they support me to no end trusting me with their hair along with their daughter’s hair. It means a lot to me because loyalty and genuineness is hard to come by these days.
