Daily Inspiration: Meet Rasz Stewart

Today we’d like to introduce you to Rasz Stewart.

Hi Rasz, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
It all started in 2016 with a HUGE leap of faith and a big push of encouragement. I’ve always had the talented skill of braiding, but I didn’t discover I was worth it until early 2016. I had unleashed a beast that was determined, ambitious, and driven for greatness.

I got where I am today by using what I like to call my “Royal Keys”. Staying consistent, branding, networking, my amazing clients, and last but not least believing in myself.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No, it’s been a few construction signs and bumps along this road LOL. There will always be some type of struggle in order to define the best you. A few minor struggles were tardiness (really not a morning person), product shortage, satisfying every client.

But my main struggle was my mental health. Servicing multiple people with different energies every day is very tough and requires a lot mentally, physically, and emotionally so take care of yourself.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a professional licensed braider. I specialize in Knotless Braids & Kid Braiding Styles. I’m known for my neat and fast braid ethic. I’m proud of my dedication to continue and never quit no matter what.

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
My entire salon home BlushNBraids Beauty Bar: Jo, Brazia, Kisha, and Miah. They’re my Braidsisters and we help each other in any way possible. The love for them is unconditional. My family and friends, every single last one of them who’s ever supported me since the beginning we’re all we got!

A very special shout out to Meric. My clientele and followers a huge THANK YOU goes out to you guys, without y’all I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’m extremely grateful and appreciate all the love and support I receive(d).
