Alicia Bunch, COO of Lady Jane's, caught up with a very excited Alexa to get a good look at the incredible girl who will represent Lady Jane's as the 2021 Rookie of the Year.
AB: When did you discover that you wanted a career in the beauty industry?
AC: Ever since I was a little girl, I loved everything to do with hair and makeup. When I was older, I started doing mine and others hair and makeup for theater and dance recitals and As i got older, my friends weddings! It always seemed like this industry was calling me!
AB: What interested you in being part of the Lady Jane's Team?
Lady Jane's is so different from a traditional men’s salon. It demands so much more from its hairdressers in terms of quality and ability. I’m so lucky to have been given a chance to show what I can do!
AB: So, how long have you worked at LJ?
I have worked at Lady Jane's for two years!
AB: Why do you think you were selected as the LJ Rookie of the Year?
AC: I feel like I was chosen because of the energy and curiosity I have for hair styling. I am always looking for ways to improve and hone my craft! It was such an honor to be recognized by the company. This opportunity has been such a blessing!
AB: In the salon, you’re on your feet and dealing with all kinds of challenges. What is it about LJ that motivates you?
AC: Like any job, hairstyling comes with its own unique set of challenges. I love what I do, and that’s such an important part of overcoming the daily stresses and difficulties! It’s important to keep reminding myself where I started and how far I’ve come with Lady Jane's.
AB: What has been your most challenging LJ moment so far?
Obviously, working with the public can be challenging. You never know what someone is going through, so I always treat people with kindness no matter how they act towards me. I always try to live by Matthew 7:12, “Do to others as you would have them do to you."
AB: What has been your proudest LJ moment so far?
Any time I give a client the perfect haircut and they tell me they will never go anywhere else again. Nothing better than knowing they are 100% satisfied and happy!
AB: Other than your career, what are you passionate about?
AC: I am very passionate about animals. It is my goal to love, care for, protect and support as many animals as I can throughout my life!
AB: What haircut are you really digging right now for the fellas?
AC: I always love a 1 fade with a little length on top. It’s such a clean, functional, fun cut and suits such a wide range of appearances.
AB: Who do you look up to as a role model?
AC: There are so many people in my personal life I look up to, but I adore Dolly Parton!
AB: Favorite restaurant/food?
AC: Any vegan restaurants and anything with avocado!
AB: What are three things you can’t live without?
AC: I can’t live without my loving friends and family, my animals, and sunshine!
AB: What’s your motto/advice you live by?
AC: Be Kind to every “kind” and remember if it’s meant to be it will.
AB: Ten years from now, where will you be…
AC: I hope to be excelling and advancing in my hair styling career and starting my own little homestead and rescuing animals!
