2020 ROOKIE OF THE YEAR INTERVIEW

Alicia Bunch, COO of Lady Jane's, caught up with a very excited Angela to get a good look at the incredible girl who will represent Lady Jane's Rookie of the Year for 2020.


AB: When did you discover that you wanted a career in the beauty industry?

AM: I’m not entirely sure, I know it sounds cliche but, the Industry, in a way, chose me. I never thought I would be doing hair but, as it turns out, I really love it and the biggest shock of all is I’m pretty good at it.

AB: What interested you in being part of the Lady Jane's Team?

AM: I liked that, with Lady Jane’s, I had the freedom to conduct business the way I wanted to. I’ve worked for companies before that handed me a script and a uniform and that was who I had to be. I don’t have to do that with Lady Jane’s. Here, I’m good enough just being myself.

AB: So, how long have you worked at LJ?

AM: About a year and a half now.

AB: Why do you think you were selected as the LJ Rookie of the Year?

AM: Wow, this is a difficult question. I honestly have no idea. I’d like to think that my work ethic and my relationship with my clients is what got me selected. That’s what means the most to me and that’s what I’m most proud of.

AB: In the salon, you’re on your feet and dealing with all kinds of challenges. What is it about LJ that motivates you?

AM: Honestly, my clients. I love what I do. Another cliche, I know, but this isn’t work to me. It’s my life. I go to work excited to be silly with my co workers and goof off with our clients and laugh all day.

AB: Other than your career, what are you passionate about?

AM: I’m very goal oriented so I’m driven and determined to accomplish those goals and move on to the next. It’s what I live for. Also I’m passionate about rock, paper, scissors and sharks ( both the animal and the cleaning supplies), food and pajamas.

AB: What is your favorite product to work with currently?

AM: Always American Crew. I’m digging the new Matte Clay in recent times.

AB: What haircut are you really digging right now for the fella's?

AM: I like the shaggy looks. I love using my razor and creating more texture and movement in the hair.

AB: Who do you look up to as a role model?

AM: It changes periodically but right now it’s between Batman and George Foreman.

AB: What has been your proudest LJ moment so far?

AM: Winning Rookie of the Year, although I’m awkward and far outside of my comfort zone, this is the first time EVER I’ve been recognized for my work. The fact that I did it by being my 100% true, honest and my awkward self makes it that much more incredible. My team in Peoria, AZ is a dream. The girls I work with all genuinely want to see each other succeed. They push me to my full potential on days when it’s hard to even put a smile on. I couldn’t have made it to this point without their love and support.

AB: Favorite restaurant or food?

AM: This question puts me under so much pressure, I’m going to go with a very generic answer so I don’t regret what I say later, PIZZA! All pizza from anywhere. Especially Costco.

AB: What are three things you can’t live without?

AM: My contacts, (the ones I put in my eyes, not the ones in the Rolodex) my mom’s homemade fried chicken and chapstick.

AB: What’s your motto/advice you live by?

AM: “Be excellent to each other, and party on dudes!”


About ANGELA MCCOMBS



ANGELA MCCOMBS: ROOKIE OF THE YEAR FOR 2020!

Before cosmetology school, I had a lot of different ideas of career paths that I wanted to pursue. When I was just 16 years old, I was given the wonderful opportunity to go part time to a technical high school to take classes that would count for college credit. I was very interested in the beauty industry since my grandma and great grandma had both been hair stylists. I graduated high school with not only my diploma but also my license as a cosmetologist!

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR: WHAT IT TAKES TO BE WICKED AWESOME

I believe a huge part of success is loving what you do. I believe I grew as a stylist by having such a wonderful mentor as a manager, and having such a great team of girls to work with.

TO LJ... AND BEYOND

I think positive energy and teamwork is what’s most important when it comes to work. Clients can really feel bad vibes in a salon. Positive energy is a rule I live by. I look forward to devoting myself to getting better each day and to set an example for others to benefit..

ANGELA'S PHILOSOPHY ON LIFE...

“I would have to say honesty. Honesty is hands down the most important thing to me. If you live an honest life, you live a good life.“
