We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexandrea Smith and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alexandrea, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my business was very scary , I was unsure and always had the “what if’s “ and honestly I’m so glad I took that leap of faith because if I didn’t I wouldn’t be where I am today.💖

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I am a cosmetologist, I knew the industry was for me because I loved the art behind makeup so once I graduated I attended natural image beauty college and once I graduated I put my all into my business and never stopped promoting or putting myself out there. It’s all about word of mouth and taking good care of your clients. I am now not only a cosmetologist but a professional makeup artist & lash tech.
I also have created my own cosmetic line. I am working on creating a strong team to open my shop next:
It was a hard journey from where I started but I am super glad I didn’t let any obstacle stop me.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would definitely take them to my favorite restaurant with seafood down here and that is Polypop. I would also take them to visit the beach. We would also go shopping at the mall and just enjoy the days.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I really want to thank each & everyone who has ever supported me and my business!! It means more to me than they know because I have built my own name and self up from scratch since the beginning. I really had no idea my business would be in the position it is in today will full books I am so blessed with amazing clientele they support me in any & everything I do 💖
