Rising Stars: Meet Jada Welch

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jada Welch.

Hi Jada, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started doing my own hair throughout middle and high school. I practiced braiding and extensions on my friends and family around the same time. I’ve always had a passion for art but I couldn’t really find a niche in outside of graphic design or curating. Really had no interest in going to college at all. I been waitressing and soon after enrolled in cosmetology in 2017, three months out of high school. I feel it’s definitely in the same field. I enjoyed receiving visions and ideas from others and transforming them. I started taking it more seriously and turned my hobby into a career around 2019.

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?
Yes and no. Clients started coming out of nowhere really. Personally, I would’ve never paid for the work I produced at first. But my friends and people I met in cosmetology school definitely pushed me. I’ve always had a good support system. Taking classes was always encouraged since this field is constantly changing. Really the only challenges I’ve run into would just be difficult customers. Some people you can never please and that’s pretty frustrating.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize currently in braiding hair. Feed in braids, knotless braids, box braids, etc. I’m most proud of being able to retain regular clients. I feel like my punctuality and professionalism set me apart in this industry. Outside of work, I’m introverted. But behind the chair, I make sure I get to know all of my clients and try and give them the best experience. I think my background in customer service with waitressing and hosting helps tremendously.

If you had to, what characteristic of yours would you give the most credit to?
Humility Professionalism
Neat work
