My decision to become a hairdresser was made in 1991, when I helped my sister get ready for the Marine Corps birthday ball. No detail left untouched, after the last hair was tucked and sprayed, the look on her face and the pep in her step was all it took for me to know that hairdressing was what I wanted to do.

I made my sister’s day. I was a day-maker.

To this day, seeing someone’s face light up after a fresh haircut or a complete transformation still makes me feel the same way it did in November of 1991. I’m still a day-maker.

Over the course of my two-and-a-half-decade hairdressing journey, I have had so many wonderful experiences. These experiences have really helped me mold who I am as a hairdresser and has allowed me to understand the true impact I have on being a day maker.I stood on the sidelines of Kansas City Chiefs games at what was then called Arrowhead Stadium –being one of the few entrusted to take care of the cheerleading squad on game days and beyond. I have driven a few hundred miles to grasp as much color education as I could find to add to my toolbox. I have flown to Vegas to congregate with 5,000 other hairdressers so we could learn, share stories and dance. I’ve learned the power of being a servant leader and to help other hairdressers build their dreams to. Continuing to learn and grow as a hairdresser and leader has brought me to present day. I am beyond grateful that I get to take allthe wisdom and knowledge I’ve gained to continue to help people put that pep in their step by creating beautiful looks for them; and be a day maker.

When I am not behind the chair, I always have my hands in something... refurbing old furniture, gardening, cooking, baking....you name it. My husband of twenty-fiveyears and me are very active with our church, volunteer with Husky Haven of Florida and have SIX Siberian Huskies of our own: Zeppelin, Riley, Bear, Chloe, Lucy and Daisy.

ABOUT Rochelle - Contemporary Stylist

The love of hair. I knew it from a very early age. That is exactly why I became a hairdresser. I love the beauty of all of it, how versatile it can be and I absolutely love that I can make people feel beautiful by doing their hair.

I’ve always wanted to become a hairdresser. I grew up around people of different races and ethnic backgrounds. I was always intrigued at different hair, textures, and styles that were around me. My family and friends would ask me to do their hair and it never ceased to amaze me at how much it would affect me by how much they loved how they felt as a result of my doing their hair. They viewed themselves differently. As I got older, all those feelings never faded away. Persistence.

Before I had the opportunity to follow my dreams, I became a mom. Hairdressing took a seat on the back burner so I could take care of my child. In 2016, I met my amazing life partner who always pushed me to follow my heart. My number one supporter will follow and have my back to go down any path I dream of.In August 2021 my grandmother passed away. There was a huge storm that cancelled all flights going into New York. Determined to get there, I took a plane,a bus,and two trains to make it forher funeral. After accomplishing that feat, I realized how much one could do in a day and then imagined how much could be accomplished in one year. When I got back, I told Luis what I had realized. He pushed me to go to school for cosmetology.With my newfound epiphany of perseverance andhis support, I knew it was time. I quit my job after being a pharmacy tech for 11 years and started cosmetologyschool in Sept 2021. In July 2022,I graduated while seven months pregnant, got my license and I am now starting my career.35 years old and now a mother of two. All of thiscouldnothave come at a more perfect time for me. Every step leading me here was a step I had to take. It just shows to never give up and never stop dreaming.If you have that feeling telling you what you should be doing, follow it. It is a gift and it will not do you wrong.

\What I am looking forward to the most in my career is changing lives. When you look good, you feel good and when youfeel good you have the confidence to take a chance in life. I will neverstop learning so I can keep growing and become the very best version of myself,while making people beautiful.
