Life & Work with Grace Herrick

Today we’d like to introduce you to Grace Herrick.

Grace, we appreciate you taking the time to share your story with us today. Where does your story begin?
My passion has always been to make others feel like the best version of themselves. I loved doing hair from a young age. With the support of my loving family, I enrolled in cosmetology school fall of 2017. I then graduated and got a position at a local hair salon. When I started my family I knew it was time to spread my wings. It was my dream to be my own boss one day and now that day is here. Many people have helped me get to where I am today and I thank them for that.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Owning your own business is not a walk in the park by any means. I was new to the business side of cosmetology so I had to learn from the bottom. Having a newborn at home while starting my business was not easy, but if you believe in yourself you can accomplish the unthinkable. I’m excited for what the future holds!

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I am a Hairstylist, and I specialize in Balayage, Color, and Hair Extensions. Something that always makes me proud is the way my clients feel at the end of a service. The best feeling is when a client looks at themselves and says to me “I feel beautiful” because that is my goal every single day. I always want my clients to feel like I am their safe place. They can vent to me about anything and everything, they can laugh with me about the silliest things, and they can always trust me.

The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
You will always go through ups and downs but it’s how you get back up that matters. Due to the Covid-19 crisis lots of companies have been knocked down, but if we can get through this we can get through anything!
