A cosmetologist is faced with daily challenges. But the great part of these challenges is at the end of the day we can leave them in the salon!
It's not a stressful career that raises your blood pressure constantly, only in short bursts!
Just remember to take care of yourself. When it gets to be too much, take sanctuary behind the break room door and BREATHE.
The next client will be better!
Gather your strength, calm your nerves and get back out there because you can't make money from the break room!
"You can't tell ANYONE!" Uum, I work in a salon. That is not something I can promise. #cosmoprobs— Cosmetologist Probs (@CosmoProbs) July 11, 2014
