Life & Work with Tosha Wilson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tosha Wilson.

Hi Tosha, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I was raised here in Austin, Texas. I grew up on the northeast side of Austin. My passion in life was to sing and make it on the big screens and have my own cosmetics line. after I graduated in 2012, I ended going to nursing school and also putting together my own cosmetics line, but in all honesty, I wasn’t all the way focus or consistent with the cosmetics line so I just let it fade away so I could just stay focus on school after I finish school. I started working for the state of Texas. I ended up starting my own hustle on the side and that was dyeing hair. I would just put colors together and try them on my head and I would love it and people would always ask who colored your hair and when I told them I did my own coloring, they were shocked. So I eventually started coloring other people’s hair and recreating color looks that they want & I fell in love with coming up with colors and giving girls a new look. After a while, I decided to make it a business so in February 2019, I made that possible I came up with PASTYL BEAUTY a year later, I decided to add my own cosmetics line to pastyl cause I love Make-up at first, I was very indecisive about what I should do. Still, I went with my gut feeling to go for it and I can honestly say it was the best move I made with my business, which is now called PASTYL BEAUTY COSMETICS.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It hasn’t been easy. I think every entrepreneur have struggled when they first start out. When I came across mines, I got a little worried. Sometimes I didn’t know what to do, but I made a way to get back on track.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Specialize in coloring hair of all types, I’m also a beauty consultant. I’m very known for my unique hair coloring skills. I’m very proud of the way I have overcome all my obstacles in life and manage to still keep a smile on my face through it all because I AM A SURVIVOR. What sets me apart from others is that I’m a natural born hustle, and I find it’s easy for me to relate to other people that’s been thru what I been through. Many people I grew up around look up to me & admire how much I had grown.

What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love that downtown LA, I don’t have a dislike ❤️
