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

Hi Alexyss, have you ever found yourself in a spot where you had to decide whether to give up or keep going? How did you make the choice?
I think we all have once stumbled upon a time where we were not happy and wanted to give up, but I believe that if you are doing anything that makes you happy and you see the change within yourself why give up? Giving up is something that I have struggled with before but the love for my career kept me going. It is very important to see how far can you really go and how good you can work under pressure to determine how dedicated you are to keep going. Personally I don’t think you should ever give up on something that you truly believe in no matter how hard life gets, because when that time comes it’ll all be worth it!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I think what sets me apart is the transparency of how I am with my clients. I am honestly most proud of how I haven’t given up on something I actually love doing. I’ve taken the time to learn more about lashing to sharpen my skills even more and I am very excited about where it will take me. Business wise what helped me the most was learning to balance my personal life, school life, and business life. Once I got those 3 down I was practically unstoppable. Sometimes you have to take breaks to clear your mind from all the work you’ve done to still have a clear mind. It personally was not easy but after 3 years I think I have mastered it so far. Overcoming the challenges I had to see what worked best for me. I used to over work myself but I was not doing anything but hurting myself in the end. I think in the beginning of your career all you are worried about is making the money. Once you realize that it is not just about that the better off you will be and the better your work will become. I have learned to balance my life, take more classes on what I love doing to perfect it, and that you cannot please everyone. I want the world to know that no matter how old you are never give up on what you love! I am a 23 year old lash tech/college student and I love doing lashes and everything that I have been through whether good or bad I regret nothing. I love the person I am becoming.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would eat at either Taste Bar, Graces, and have drinks and hang out at Turkey Leg Hut. I can’t really name places to check out but I will say Houston is full of many places to just have a good time.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would love to give a shout out to all of my clients. Most of them were with me in the beginning going through it all from when I was working in the beauty shops, hotels, and empty apartments. I would not be the young woman I am today without them.
