16 Oct No Pain, All Gain: Fashion Week Made Easy
Recently, I had the pleasure to call in to Ariel & Shya’s internet radio show, Being Here. The episode theme was “No Pain, All Gain,” and I found the show thoroughly inspiring. It may just be why I had one of the most easy, relaxed, painless and fun Fashion Weeks ever.
I am a professional hair and makeup artist, working all over Europe on photo shoots, editorials and recently at the prestigious Fashion Week fashion shows – working as a hair stylist for designers such as Balenciaga, Fendi, Hermès, and more. But I remember when I first started working with hair – I was lost in my story about not being talented enough and how much hard work and pain it would take to become a good and successful business person (and a successful hairstylist). I also had the thought it would take years and years of practice to be able to work at shows at Fashion Week. With the approach of Ariel & Shya and Instantaneous Transformation, I started seeing new options. I could listen to my story or I could go for what I desire – working at fashion shows and having it be painless, easy and fun. HERE is a link to the episode – have fun listening, I’m caller number two!
Quick side facts: Being Here has tens of thousands of listeners all over the world each month and you can download it for FREE through the Podcasts App on iPhone (or other podcasting apps). I find this very handy for traveling by train, plane or when listening on a break.
In the world of Fashion, there is a lot of focus on “being cool,” understated, “artistic,” or hiding behind the coolest outfit – now I’m discovering my own personal “cool,” which includes being successful, enthusiastic and having fun working. And Yes! It really is that simple and easy – and you can have it too.
