Welcome to my world!!!!
Being that this my first blog post EVER, I wanted to introduce myself…HI! I’m Erica!
Before I start rambling on about myself, I figured I should clear a few things up…I AM NOT A WRITER & I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I’M DOING (well, as far as blogging goes). I am very new to this “blog world” and all I ask is that you have patience with me. I’m learning as I go in many areas of my life these days, but I promise I will do my very best.
Now your probably wondering who I am…well, I’m no one special. I’m just a regular chick trying to build a small business into a successful empire and take over the world. Oh, and did I mention I have an UNGODLY obsession with all things hair & beauty related? Seriously, it’s bad! It has become a complete addiction. However, I guess that’s a good thing being it’s my career path.
I am a hairstylist, makeup artist, self-proclaimed extensions guru, and tiny business owner. For about 10 years now I have been custom designing 100% Indian virgin remy hair and 100% remy human hair clip-in extensions. Why clip-in extensions you ask?? What’s remy hair?? Don’t worry I’ll explain all of that in my next blog posts provided I get through this one. I make the hair extensions all by myself at home. No employees, no assistants, no illegal child labor and no sweat shop. All of my business started through “word of mouth”. Thank the sweet baby Jesus that women talk! Through producing a good product, and the chatter of many lovely ladies, I’ve obtained a large clientele.
About 2 years ago, I decided to start a facebook page, www.facebook.com/ExtensionsbyErica, in hopes of generating more business. Needless to say, it worked! As my business continues to grow I figured it was about time to create my very own website, www.Extensions-By-Erica.com. I wanted to be official. Yet, the thought of me creating a website all by myself made me want to cry and vomit at the same time. Did you just get that visual? Gross, I know.
I’m not that intelligent, nor computer savvy and failed to pay attention in school. I was too focused on my hair, social life, and what outfit I was going to wear. Therefore, you can understand my apprehension towards this seemingly large and time consuming task. Sure, I realize I could’ve easily paid someone to create the website for me, but that was not in my budget. So, I accepted my fate.
Now, I do not like to do things “half-assed” (excuse the colorful language). I enjoy working hard towards my goals. I’m a “go hard or go home”, “balls-to-the-wall” type of chick (excuse the colorful language once again). I immediately started researching (stalking) every hair extensions website out there. I needed to know what I was up against. One common thing I noticed amongst the “good” websites was that they all had a facebook page, twitter, youtube channel, and blog. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how this blog was born.
Currently, I’m still working on my website. I hope to have it up and running before my birthday on February 11th. Also, I recently started a youtube channel, www.youtube.com/extensionsbyerica, in which I fully intend to make hair and makeup tutorials. Until then, you can checkout and “like” my facebook page www.facebook.com/ExtensionsbyErica, follow me on twitter – @extbyerica and on www.pinterest.com/extbyerica.
Now that I have shamelessly promoted myself, I want to thank you for taking the time to read my blog and hope that you will revisit soon! I promise to have interesting and informative posts about everything hair, makeup, extensions, and product related. I love constructive criticism so please leave your comments and suggestions! Thank you!!
