Moving? Again?

Ever read something and think... Holy hell that is me sooo hard??? I was just browsing Pinterest in a moment of boredom and I came across this: "Cancer is a mysterious sign filled with contradictions. They want security and comfort yet seek new adventure. They are very helpful to others yet sometimes can be cranky and indifferent. Cancer has a driving, forceful personality that can be easily hidden beneath a calm and cool exterior. They have a deep psyche and intuitive mind that is hidden from the world. Cancer is deeply sensitive and easily hurt. They are complex, fragile, unpredictable, and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement... Cancer needs to be needed. They have an excellent memory and are very observant and can read people very well." Hi. this is me... in a paragraph.

^ so real ^

I have always been into reading my horoscope and a few years ago my bestie of all besties had this book sitting on her coffee table and we become obsessed with it. It was Darkside Zodiac. It described all of the downsides to your astrological sign. I can't lie I read each and every word about cancers darkside and was like... whoa, hold up. I am a cancer. through and through. I let this affect me for a while until I decided to do more research on the good things about a cancer... don't worry guys I posses those qualities too! Where am I going with this you may be asking yourself.... well here I am being all cancerous again  "want(ing) security and comfort yet seek(ing) new adventure." 

So last year around this time my employment was as a full time stylist at Suggestions Salon. I loved it sooo much, but I got to a point where I needed something new, So I dropped my hours to part time and started freelance styling more and more & ended up working with an artist development company doing a myriad of things and it was great. It challenged me and I worked with all of my favorite humans and was able to style musicians on the regular. Toward the end of the summer I was offered a position as the in house stylist at a provo based clothing company. and I was like.. well neat this is made for me! Styling 3 days a week and doing hair 3 days a week! Life was magical. Well..... as in true Tara fashion a few months passed and I needed more of a challenge. So I started looking for full time positions in the styling world. I continued to style, freelance and do hair while on my search. I was able to land a great job as a marketing and styling assistant for a clothing boutique here in Utah and with this change I had to make a change in my hours doing hair. Up until this point, deciding to cut back on my salon hours & having less freelance time was one of the hardest choices I had made in my job world. I decided to go all in and work 9-5 m-f and then continue taking hair clients 2 nights a week and all day Saturdays. It was a serious transition having to be somewhere 8 hours a day... what do you mean I can't take a 3 hour lunch, or style a shoot in the middle of the day?? But after the initial adjustment  this has worked really well for me for the past few months. Like most humans the "New Year" bring a sense of renewal and change and when I was home in San Diego for the holidays I had this nagging feeling that it was time for a change again.

I am finally getting settled into my new marketing job, and I am quite established at Suggestions Salon, so what could be missing? I wrestled with the options I had infront of me. 

I am an entrepreneur by nature. I have had a handful of random.... and half asses business ideas that my poor parents have supported me and and I have never followed through with 100%. (Don't worry M1M1K will be making a come back... new face & all....just wait for it) 

But one thing has been constant since I started it and that was me being a hairstylist. I have been doing hair for 5 years and it has a huge part of my heart. So I have decided to follow my entrepreneurial heart and go out on my own and continue to be a hairstylist & focus on make up artistry again! 

My time at Suggestions Salon was incredible, I learned so much and I met some great girls, some of which I know will continue to be amazing friends! I was able to establish a clientele of amazing humans who are now my friends and I am ready to take it to the next level... I am headed to a new salon folks! 

Don't worry ladies and gents. I am only heading a bit south to Provo and I am beyond excited to start this adventure! To all of my existing clients: thank you for your constant patience in my ADD moving from salon to salon. To my new & old clients: If you need to make an appointment with me send me a text, an email, a facebook message, snap chat, tweet, DM me on insta for all I care.. you get the point. I will take good care of you :)

Yay for new years, new things and new adventures! 

k bye bye
