Beauty from the Inside
a little girl I always dreamed of being a hair designer.
I always wanted to make people beautiful. However
looking through a child’s eye it was just
making people look pretty. When I grew up and made
that dream a reality, I realized there was so much
more involved beyond physical appearance. Everyday
we touch people in many different ways.
realized this several years ago when one of my guests
was going through chemotherapy. She started to lose
her hair so we ordered a wig for her; it wasn’t
that bad until the evening she came in to shave
her hair off. Until that time my job had always
come easy to me. Doing hair was a great gift God
gave me. That night had significant meaning. I was
actually taking off the one thing I was good at.
At that moment I realized there was more to my job,
more then just making someone’s hair look
great. I had to look deeper past the beauty outside;
I had to look at the beauty within. So I reached
down inside my self and gave her everything I was.
goal as a hair designer is to always make sure every
person that leaves my chair feels great. I had to
achieve the same that night. My client had to leave
me feeling good about the way she looked. So I made
her laugh and realize that hair is just hair, its
not who she was. I told her to look at it this way;
she could have a different style everyday. I made
her feel good and when she walked out the door I
hugged her and gave her a kiss and told her I’d
see her next week. As the door closed behind her
and the tears ran down my face, I thanked God for
giving me the strength to make her still feel pretty.
Although at times when the hair was falling on the
floor and the tears rolled down her face I wanted
to die. I didn’t want to fail her I wanted
her to still feel good, even though this was probably
one of the most difficult things she had to go through.
women, our hair means everything to us. It was probably
at that moment I realized we all have a special
gift to give to every person we come into contact
with. It is more than just making them look good.
That person in our chair may be on the edge and
we may be the person to pull them back. We might
be the only person that they talk to all day. Everyone
has value and wants to be seen, so we need to give
fully all that we are; our great gift God gave us,
and our understanding. Remember that person you
think is a pain, may actually need hearing something
good from you.
