Alicia Bunch, COO of Lady Jane's, caught up with a very excited Lisa to get a good look at the incredible girl who will represent Lady Jane's in 2019:
Position & Locations: Stylist - Chesterfield, MI
AB: When did you discover that you wanted a career in the beauty industry?
LS: I first realized that I wanted to be part of the beauty industry when I took a tour of a Paul Mitchell school. The creativity and energy everyone had in there was inspiring and I knew I wanted to be a part of that exciting world.
AB: What interested you in being part of the Lady Jane's Team?
LS: When I first got licensed as a cosmetologist, I got a job in a full-service salon doing women’s hair. It was a fun job and I learned a lot but I was really unhappy there and I never felt excited to go to work every day. I soon realized that it wasn’t for me and wanted to try a different route. So, I took a chance and signed a contract Lady James in Chesterfield, MI and after my first day I knew I found my niche.
AB: So, how long have you worked at LJ?
LS: 3 1/2 Years.
AB: Why do you think you were selected as the LJ Girl of the Year?
LS: I think I was selected for my hard work and dedication. I have travel trained in Omaha, NE, and West Des Moines, IA. I was also blessed to be part of breaking and entering with Mojo in the morning a couple years ago, as well as Making the Cut segments. I was even lucky enough record radio commercials for Detroit and Omaha locations. In addition to managing a location and always pushing myself to have great numbers and build my clientele every day. I now have over 300 returning clients every 3 months. I have worked hard to build to this point and can’t wait to continue to grow that number into the 4 and 500s! It’s so important to me to make sure I have happy and satisfied clients. When they get out of my chair, I want them to feel like a million bucks! I am so honored to have been chosen for LJ girl and am so appreciative that my hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.
AB: In the salon, you’re on your feet and dealing with all kinds of challenges. What is it about LJ that motivates you?
LS: What keeps me motivated to come in and tackle every day is my teammates. I work with an awesome group of girls who push each other and motivate each other when we are tired and running on E. We are a pretty busy location and sometimes it can be overwhelming but knowing that I have a great group of girls who all do their best, makes it a fun place to be and keeps us all going during those busy times. My clients also keep me motivated. As stylists, we deal with all sorts of clients. I have had cancer patients who have cried as I shave off their hair. I have had clients hold back tears as they tell me they just lost a loved one and they need a clean-up for the funeral, clients who have gotten cut because they are going to propose to their girlfriend that night. Some of the people we encounter are just in for a “regular cut”. But for some, it’s a huge deal and they want to look their best. And those are the moments I am so in love with my career choice and happy to be there for them.
AB: Other than your career, what are you passionate about?
LS: Other than my career, I am passionate about spending time with friends and family, animals, going to sporting events, and traveling.
AB: What is your favorite product to work with currently?
LS: Manipulator matte is currently one of my all-time favorite products. It does not get hard and crunchy but it has a firm hold and an awesome textured look!
AB: What haircut are you really digging right now for the fella's?
LS: I really like clean cut and sharp haircuts. Right now, I’m really loving a short messy look on top (styled with manipulator matte) and a 1-2 fade with a 0 taper on the neckline.
AB: Who do you look up to as a role model?
LS: I look up to my mom as a role model. She is a very smart, hardworking, generous, patient person whose faith in God is inspiring. She always has a solution to every problem and she keeps me grounded. (Not to mention an amazing cook).
AB: Are you a sports fan?
LS: Living in metro Detroit, being a sports fan is kind of mandatory! It’s a rough road but I will always support and cheer for the lions! As well as the Red Wings and Tigers!
AB: Favorite restaurant or food?
LS: Favorite food is a hard one. But if I had to choose I would pick shrimp and steak.
AB: What are three things you can’t live without?
LS: 3 things I can’t live without is mascara, fuzzy blankets, friends and family.
AB: What’s your motto/advice you live by?
LS: “A mistake that makes you humble is better than an achievement that makes you arrogant."
