I recently spent some time with Jamie from Beautifully Blended Hair Boutique to take some updated business head shots for her to include on her website and social media. I have worked with Jamie in the past on a gorgeous group senior photo session, you can check those photos out HERE, HERE, HERE AND HERE. Beautifully Blended Hair Boutique has grown so much since that session so I thought it would be nice to catch up with Jamie again and share some of my favorite pictures from her business head shot session.
Please take a moment and get to know Jamie and see how her business evolved and why she loves her profession and check out some of my favorite shots!!
How did your business come about?
The start of my own business was really perfect timing. My mother is an entrepreneur, making me fully aware of the hard work and dedication that goes into running your own business. With that being said, I was fully up the challenge. When the perfect location opened up I didn’t hesitate. I run my own suite in Phenix Salon Suites in Middletown, NY. A suite setting gives the business owner the opportunity to have all the perks of your own space without all the added stressors that come along with that.
Tell me a bit about your business, what makes it special?
I’m a one-woman show! I work by appointment only which enables me to give each client my full attention. I can proudly say I have a fantastic relationship with all of my clients. I have learned how crucial environment is to a successful business. Beautifully Blended Hair Boutique has a very calming vibe, soft pinks accents with neutral walls. I searched high and low for the perfect lighting, which is everything when it comes to hair coloring! It is imperative to me that my clients feel at ease when they are a guest in my salon.
How long have you been in business?
Can’t believe its been over 3 years now!
What is your favorite part of being your own boss?
Having control of my schedule! I think everyone would agree (parents especially)—there’s nothing more annoying than being at work with nothing going on, knowing how many other million things you could be accomplishing in that time. If I’m not working, I’m not there. If I know I have something coming up, I simply don’t schedule anything that day. The flexibility is everything to me with two kids.
What are some of the products or services your offer?
I offer full color services (Highlights, Balayage, Ombre, Low- Lights, Pravana Vivid Colors). I also offer keratin treatments, haircutting and of course styling.
What is your favorite product or service you offer?
My favorite service is a color transformation. Whether it’s a full head of foils or creating a multi-dimensional red, transformations are my favorite. It is so incredibly fulfilling to me to be responsible for someone’s happiness in that moment. To have the ability to lift someone’s spirits just really makes me happy. I always follow up with my clients, especially the first time I see them, I want to make sure they’re expectations have been met. It’s extremely important to me. If there’s a piece that I know should be blonder for example I will be the first one to call it out and ask if they can stay for me to make that piece just a bit brighter. I’m a perfectionist.
How can people get in touch to make an appointment with you?
The best way is directly through my website where they can book online ----> www.
