Today we’d like to introduce you to Kalyn Rainey.
Kalyn, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Originally from the suburbs of Chicago IL, I moved to LA in August of 2016, right after finishing esthetician school. With only $300 in my account, no job, and no place to stay, I was determined to make a way for myself in a new city.
I always knew the beauty field was my lane, but it took time to figure out my exact niche. After a couple lash extension courses, I knew that was what I wanted to do. I worked in multiple salons before opening my own beauty bar in January of 2020, right in the heart of DTLA. The year 2020 hasn’t been an easy one, but I’m extremely blessed to still be here and my shop still open.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It hasn’t always been an easy road. Not having family close by and learning who you can trust and depend on in a new city is always a challenging task. But even with the distance my family has shown a tremendous amount of support and love. and that’s all I could ever ask for. I’ve made some amazing connections that have also made this journey a lot easier. Now that I’m finally settled it’s only up from here, especially with God on my side.
Please tell us about KRXCO Beauty.
I am an esthetician, and I specialize in lash extensions. My business will also service clients in need of hair/nail/ or waxing services. As a business owner, I’m most proud of how I connect with my clients, and I believe that’s what also sets me apart. I like to think that I create a space for clients to come in and just be themselves. I give them the floor to vent without judgment in a safe environment. I also keep my customers in mind when setting my prices as well, I service a lot of young college women and want to be sure they can look and feel good at an affordable price.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I would stay single (men are to big of a distraction) lol, and I would save, save, save!
