Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Hix.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
In high school, I attended the college fair and stopped at the booth for beauty school. It took about 30 seconds and I instantly knew I’d enjoy the program. I didn’t know anything about the industry but I was fascinated and it sounded like so much fun. Plus, my school offered a program where I could attend high school part-time and beauty school the other half of the day. Not to mention, the program would put me through all of cosmetology school, with books and supplies for $200.00. Meaning I could graduate high school with a career to fall back on. I knew I could never afford college let alone find something that excited me the way this thought of the beauty industry did. I ended up graduating beauty school and became a licensed cosmetologist by 17!
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?
I knew I had a passion about the industry and loved connecting with clients and creating a relationship with these women and making them feel empowered and beautiful but to be honest, after working in a salon for my first year, I came to realize I hated cutting and coloring. I didn’t know what to do but I didn’t want to quit. I moved to San Diego from Washington state shortly after I came to realize that and I decided to step away from being behind the chair. I stayed in the industry and began managing a salon in 4S ranch. I dabbled in styling for special events and the more I dabbled, the more I fell in love with the “just styling” part of it.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I am a Southern California bridal hairstylist and am most known for my whimsical boho braids and romantic hairstyles. I find so much joy and excitement in meeting my brides and taking inspiration styles they show me and making it their own.
We’d love to hear about any fond memories you have from when you were growing up?
When I was a little girl in 4th and 5th grade, I had a fascination with hair and braids. I’d have my mom braid my hair in the tiniest little braids with colorful elastics for school and I felt so confident and empowered after my hair was done.
