Welcome to another episode of the BMS Podcast! This week, Danielle welcomes Licensed NBR Artist Christina Fuentes as her co-host to share her story of discovering joy and success in the hair industry. In this blog post, we’ll delve into Christina’s journey from her early days as a stylist to her specialization in NBR, all while prioritizing her well-being and family.
Embracing Change and Pursuing Passion
Christina’s career began in 1998, and she quickly earned a reputation as a top-notch stylist.
However, while she adored her work, something was missing.
Christina wanted to focus on something that would genuinely light up her heart and give her purpose!
However, her quest for fulfillment led her to specialize in the transformative NBR hair extension method.
The Power of Niche Marketing
Now, let’s talk about one of Christina’s major lightbulb moments – niche marketing.
By putting all her energy into perfecting the art of NBR, she became a magnet for clients hungry for the very best in hair extensions.
Christina realized that by offering a specialized service, she could create an extraordinary experience and deliver results that left her clients feeling like royalty.
This shift in mindset and marketing strategy led her to build a clientele who cherished her expertise and saw their lives transformed.
Overcoming Burnout and Prioritizing Family
Like many in the industry, Christina faced burnout.
Working long hours and juggling a variety of services began to take its toll on her well-being and quality time with her family.
Recognizing the toll it took, she made the choice to transition to a studio closer to home.
This change allowed her to be there for her kids’ activities and soak up precious moments with her loved ones.
The Art of Letting Go
Now, letting go of long-time clients? That’s no easy feat.
But Christina handled it with grace and professionalism.
She reached out personally to each client, explaining her decision to focus solely on NBR and even recommended other talented stylists who could continue to pamper them.
Taking a tip from what she learned within The Academy, she used voice memos to add a personal touch when letting her clients know of the move, ensuring they felt valued.
Finding Joy and Success
Fast forward to today, and Christina is thriving in her charming studio, Stitch Hair Atelier, where she exclusively works her NBR magic.
She finds immense joy in transforming clients’ hair and lives, restoring their confidence and achieving their hair dreams.
By putting her well-being first and creating a work environment that aligns with her values, Christina has uncovered a sense of fulfillment that goes far beyond the numbers on her client list.
Christina journey in the hair industry isn’t just about styling hair; it’s about chasing your dreams and cherishing what truly matters.
