Katrise Jones - Blowout Tips

If you have dry hair, the condition in the shower. If you have fine hair, condition only the ends. You can only pull off a great blowout if your hair isn't super soaked. Otherwise, it will take way too long to accomplish. Apply any product to hair at this point. A good styling product is a key to the perfect blowout. This step will help you add body to fine, limp hair while women with thick, curly hair need to keep the frizz under control. The secret is to coat every strand of hair with product.

If your hair is dry, work in a leave-in conditioner, a shine serum or a straightening balm. First thing is to coat the ends and work your way up the hair shaft. From there you can comb the product through the entire strand of hair. If you hair is limp or flat, then use a thickening spray or work in a mousse. Try not to use gels as they don't set properly with high heat. Then you can pre-dry and blow your bangs from that point on. You will want to get your hair around 80% dry so you can either air dry or if time is short you can use a dryer to remove any moisture prior to the blowout.

Now for the fun part, you will want to bend over at the waist to boost the roots. Then you can separate hair into sections by dividing combed hair and securing with ponytail holders or clips. Using your fingers, you will pull through the hair starting at the roots. Pull hair a few inches out and hold it while you use the dryer to shoot air at the base on down the strand. Don't use a brush as a brush can retain moisture in the stand and create frizzy hair. Once you've dried the roots, you can continue with the brush as you blow dry pointing the nozzle downward onto the hair. Remember you are following the brush with the dryer at this point. Now that you are completely dry you can use the cool function on your blow-dryer and add any serum of your choice. Good luck!

The Role of the Solopreneur

Here are the three big drivers that helped grow my solopreneur income:

If you are to find success as a Solopreneur, you will need to find the best ways to invest your time and money. If there are tasks, you can offload that take you away from strategy then you should be outsourcing those tasks as often as possible. You as an owner should be focusing on client work, networking, and marketing.


A great solopreneur does the necessary research to figure out their worth. If you want to take your business to the next level, then research rates in your area and know exactly what the demand and pricing are. If you're going to freelance, you can increase your income simply by understanding what other talented individuals in your industry are doing. Don't waste your time with the first offer you get, it's easy to accept work because you need work but selling yourself short can build up a reputation for cheap work and cheap labor. You should proactively identify and target quality clients you know can pay well and sustain over time. One great way to grow your business without hiring full-time employees is to find like-minded solopreneurs and collaborate. They can recommend your products to their audience and vice versa.


Critical components to success are high-quality branding, social media and maximizing your use of tools like Twitter and LinkedIn to the network. All of your promotions should push to your website and blog and drive thought leadership in your space. It takes a little time and hard work but it will eventually trickle into cash flow revenue you can rely on.

Becoming a Hair Stylist

To be a stylist, you need the ability to both understand and convey information clearly and precisely. Hairstylists cannot do their job if they aren't good listeners. A hairstylist is almost a therapist; you are in a sense helping someone fix a problem or improve. So what is the first thing a therapist must do to diagnose an issue? Well, they must be great listeners, and that is the same case with a Stylist.


Not only must they be able to hear what their clients say aloud, they must have the social perceptiveness to understand what they don't say as well. Hairstylists must be service-oriented. Their primary focus is serving their customers.


A hairdresser is a person whose occupation is to cut or style hair to change or maintain a person's image. This image change is achieved using a combination of hair coloring, hair cutting, and hair texturing techniques. Most hairdressers are professionally licensed as a hairdresser, a barber or a cosmetologist. Occupationally, hairdressing is expected to grow faster than the average for all other occupations, at 20%. A state license is required for hairdressers to practice, with qualifications varying from state to state. A person interested in hairdressing must have a high school diploma or GED, be at least 16 years of age, and have graduated from a state-licensed barber or cosmetology school.
