Hi, yall! I'm so excited about this opportunity to share my heart and passion for this industry with ya'll! My name is Kaylee Harbin, I'm 21, and I graduated from Texas College of Cosmetology, Abilene in November of 2015. I'm in love with what I do!
Rewind about 3 years ago, that definitely wasn't the case. 3 years ago, I'd just graduated high school and was suffering through nursing school. Now, nothing against nurses, but it was absolutely not my cup of tea. I knew I wanted to help people, and I had a desire to serve people, I was just wasn't sure nursing was my calling. After my husband was given orders to Dyess AFB, Abilene in the summer of 2013 I knew I was done with nursing school. After stirring with what to do and going back and forth for over a year, I decided that maybe cosmetology school was something I could do. Like I said previously, I had the heart for people, I had some talent with a curling iron, and I was fairly certain coloring someone's hair couldn't be that hard. So, I visited the school, got the tour, met some of the girls, and began feeling like maybe this could be it.
I started my first day so excited and full of jitters! And before I knew it, that excitement turned into full blown passion! I'd never yearned to learn more than I did my year in school. My instructors were the best of the best and instilled in me, not only the principles I would need but also the confidence that is demanded of a stylist. I aspired to be the best stylist I could be! And that brings me to where I am now. I'm currently working for the Salon at Ulta, continuing to learn and grow everyday. Design and finish is where my heart is and I'm working everyday to be a well rounded stylist and advancing my knowledge and expertise in color. Everyday brings new challenges and new experiences. I'm so blessed to do what I love everyday and to be given the opportunity to be of service to my clients. I recently read another blog that posed the question "if you didn't get paid to do what you do, would you still do it?". My answer is yes, a million times over, yes!!
