Conversations with Vicky Lee

Today we’d like to introduce you to Vicky Lee.

Hi Vicky, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I’ve been a hairstylist for almost six years. Prior to becoming a hairstylist, I graduated with my bachelor’s in Accounting and worked in the tax and entertainment industry for eight years. I’ve always had an interest in the beauty industry, freelancing as a hair and makeup artist for events and weddings. As much as I tried to pass the CPA exams, it just wasn’t happening and that was when I started re-evaluating my career and what I wanted for myself. After my 30th birthday, I realized I needed to either buckle down and pass the CPA or give the beauty industry a try. In 2015, I enrolled in the cosmetology program at Citrus Community College. Since taking the leap and switching careers it’s been a rewarding journey.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
During my time at cosmetology school, I finally felt like I was meant to do this because I was able to understand the material being taught and graduated “Student of the Year.” My struggle was more from a mental aspect because I’ve always taken the stable and secure route. I also tend to have self-doubt and second guess my decisions. The idea that I need to be my own cheerleader and recognize my skills and potential was all new. This industry is not something you can just follow a pattern and succeed. I needed to mentally understand that comparing myself to all the amazing stylists out there was not healthy and that I can be just as good if I focused on applying myself and mastering my skill.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I’m a hairstylist known for and specialize in balayage and cuts. I’m proud to have achieved stability in a short amount of time in this competitive industry and being able to build personal relationships with so many of my clients. I do work a bit slower and only on one client at a time currently. I view it as a positive because I am able to give them my full attention.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I like that my area is suburbia meets city vibes. It’s a diverse crowd of people and culture.
