Meet Shae Rowe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shae Rowe.

Hi Shae, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I basically got started blogging with just posting my interest on Instagram and Facebook. I always loved fashion and experimenting with make-up and hair. Once I got into Instagram, I started to post makeup looks I would try and different hairstyles I would attempt on myself, and different looks I was getting into. It finally made sense to me to just start my own blog. I wanted my own space to express myself that wasn’t solely on Instagram, so was born.

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?
Definitely not. I did my website myself, which technically is no cake walk so that was a bit of a challenge. But during the time I decided I wanted to take blogging seriously and actual create website, I was working at a job I was COMPLETELY unfulfilled in. Trying to stay motivated while working someplace that wasn’t making me happy was very difficult. I also got in a car accident while I was starting to create more content and build my blog so that added a twist at the time. A lot of life was happening at the time, lol.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I like to think that I specialize in creating a top to bottom look by myself. Whenever I do a shoot for my blog or to post content on Instagram, everything from my hair, makeup, nails to creating the look itself is done by me. I make the wigs and I do the full-sets, too lol. I like to think of myself as my own glam-squad. I always had the mindset that you don’t know what you can do unless you try, so that’s sort of led me to try to perfect all different forms of beauty so that I can create the looks I see in my head. I am proud that when people see my looks on Instagram or they see me in person, whether it’s my hair, makeup, or nails, they typically think someone professional did my work. I am completely self-taught at everything I do and so it makes me proud when people assume it’s professional work that was paid for.

We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
I define success as being self-sufficient and creating your own happiness. I believe that if you find a way to create the life the makes you happy on your own, you are a success.
