How I got a job at the salon.

Hi guys, so today I will be writing about the day I got a job at the salon! ENJOY!

It was a hot summer day in July, I was crazy about make up (still am) and was always on the look out for sales because you know your girl is broke! I woke up from a really good sleep, bolted down stairs for some breakfast where good news was just waiting for me at the table. My mom informed me that the Revlon lipsticks were on sale so within a heartbeat I was out the door. Well, of course, I took a shower, got ready and listened to my mom tell me not to buy the whole store. Thankfully Shoppers drug mart, a pharmacy, is only 20 minutes away from where I live so I had the opportunity to walk and lose some calories so I didn’t have to feel too guilty about drinking an iced cap on the way there, hehe!

Anyway, I was on my way, sipping on my iced cap, hoping people had not already snatched some of my favorite colors and suddenly I see my hair dresser walking out of his salon with one of his assistant. I stopped to say hi because that is usually what I do when I see him. I was not his frequent customer because I wasn’t blessed with that Rapunzel hair. I don’t even know how to explain it to you guys, my hair grows one inch in one year. Literally. So basically I’d be paying him a visit once in two years but while I was in that chair getting my haircut we’d be having great conversations about life. I’d let him know what was going on, he’d always listen and try to give me the best advice. Surprisingly, every time I did bump into him he’d always remember our last conversation and tried to keep up with my crazy life. I was actually introduced to him from one of my good old friends so we’d also always talk about her which gave us a mutual topic to keep the conversation going. He’s a 60 year old man so I guess he really knew what he was talking about and gave great advises. Anyways, I said hello to him and asked how he was doing. He replied he was doing fine and asked me what I’m doing with my life now. I wish I had something good to tell him but I did not so I replied I was not doing anything at the moment due to some issues which I did not go further into details with because that would take up the whole afternoon and it seemed like he had somewhere to be. He looked puzzled and right away said these exact words, “alright, why don’t you come in the salon and I will mold you into a hairstylist.”

I could not believe what was coming out of his mouth! Did he just offer me a job? That too a hair styling job? Is this even real life? I love these girly things! But of course, on my face you couldn’t tell that my brain was doing back flips and I decently replied with an alright. The conversation kept going on but my brain was still taking in the fact that I had not even applied for a job yet still got this offer. This was my first actual, real job. I just could not believe it, it was such a great feeling to be offered a job. I don’t think I was that happy in years. I was thinking, maybe this is it. This is what was planned for me from above. Maybe I’m supposed to become a hair stylist and that is why we crossed paths. This is the directions I’m supposed to be going in and I was so ready. So, he told me to come in on Thursday and we parted our ways. I arrived at Shoppers, quickly glanced around and picked up the lipsticks I wanted. Usually, I look around for about 20 to 30 minutes and try on the make up testers and see what was new in the stores but there was no time for that. I wanted to go home and give the good news to my family! I ran home and told them the good news and they were ecstatic! My mom advised me to take the opportunity and start fixing my sleep schedule. So that’s it my friends, that is the beginning of my crazy experience. Trust me, you guys want to hang around because this will get pretty interesting. Alright that’s it for now guys, tune back in about two or three days for my first day experience. Love you guys<3
