What Do You Look For In A Hair Care Product…Business Ownership!

12 Mar

Hello WordPress! Its been a while yet again…but I’m back!! Since I last blogged I have switched jobs again! Go figure. I HATE working for someone else! I have been saying this for a long time and now I mean it more than ever! I was working for “the hotel” well now I can tell you the name, because I no longer work there. The name of the hotel that I was working for was the Omni! I was there for almost 8 months, however the entire hotel’s staff was FIRED!! Without any notice of any sort, on 01/17/13  midnight the entire hotel was let go by our then employer, Economos Properties. On 01/18/13 the new owner took over, which was an Indian family and the take over was far from smooth. I was very unprofessional to say the least…but enough about that awful place, the awful people, and their bad business ethics.

That whole situation brings me here, wanting to start my own business!!! I have  been wanting to be my own boss for the longest time now, since I hate working for someone else. There are too many variables that can dictate your finances and future. I am tired of being a slave to the system!

Over the years I have been trying to figure out exactly what I want to do with myself, since I loath working for companies, private owned businesses and everything in between. I have thought of it all, in terms of what business I wanted to start. While I was watching television one day I saw a TV segment on a hair care product from a young girl and the product was called, Eden Body Works and it hit me! I need to be working on hair care and put what I already know to use. I am a licensed cosmetologist in the state of Virginia, and I have been since 08/2005. I have went natural and went back to the creamy crack and went natural again. However this time around I have new found motivation; I want to put together a product that will be good for the consumer as well as for my hair. I would love to make my hair more manageable since I have went natural. With me creating a hair care line I get to put my cosmetology license to use, help myself with my natural hair transition, and start my own business all at the same time! This seems like a brilliant idea! I am so excited, and I have so much more to come.

Since doing all of this, I am in the mix of developing a formula and at this point I know what I want to put in my products however I need some help! I am wanting to know what people are looking for in a hair care product. What is important to you? I have created a short survey to kind of narrow it down, to pinpoint what people are looking for in terms of a hair care product. The survey is for my marketing and research portion of my hair care product as well as just basic insight for myself. I am trying to reach as many people as possible, who are willing to take the survey. I look forward to your feedback and help. With this information I can give you, the consumer exactly what you are looking for! Thank you in advance for your participation it is greatly appreciated! With your help and the grace of God , my business will take flight and me working for someone will be a thing of the past. Here is my survey, Once again thanks love!


What You Can Get 4 Cheap Today

Eyes Lips Face

Make-up brushes and eyeliner from E.L.F.

I am an all out bargain shopper. All of my friends and family all want to go shopping with me, because they know that when I come home from shopping it is with a bag of stuff that cost me next to nothing.

I have already mastered shopping in stores, now it is time for me to conquor the world wide web. I have found a few items that are priced very cheaply. I have found 2 sites that offer products that I reccomend and use; well I am waiting for my waist cinecher from Orchard Corset. But as for E.L.F. (eyes lips face) I use there make-up; it is dirt cheap I’m talking as low as 1.00 an item, and the make-up is good.

I was introduced to E.L.F. a couple of years back. I was shopping at a Burlington Coat Factroy and I saw this smokey eye shadow kit that included an eye lash curler. I forgot how much I paid for it, but I am a bargain shopper so I know it wasn’t that much. I loved the smokey eye that I got from the kit. That was the last time I saw the make-up…. At least untill now. I sae mak-up brushesin Dollar General, I know the name brand E.L.F. so I purchased a few. I did my make-up and used my brushes as soon as I got home, and the 3 brushes that I have work absolutely wonderful. I reccommend them to everyone and anyone to use. Once you try E.L will be hooked. Trust me. The brushes work just as good as any other professional brushes. I have Revlon professional brushes, and I am here to tell you E.L.F. works just as good. If not better. On top of the brushes the make-up lasts all day. It is worth a try. You should definetly visit the site. Once you visit the site be sure to sign you e-mail address up to recieve exclusixe offers from E.L.F. That is also worth doing. Everyday I get an e-mail with a coupon code to use during the check out. The only down side to this is that you can only use one coupon per order. One of the current specials are but 1 item get 1 50% off. You have to spend at least 20.00 to use the coupon code. This offer expires today so… Visit the site and buy E.L.F.

Besides make-up I have found a site that offers corsets, shapeware, lingure, and a host of other items. There is something on the site for everyone. The site is currently offering a long torso waist cincher for 6.99 on clearence, as well as a short torso waist cincher for 6.99 on clearence. Check out the link to check out the long torso waist chicher and see what you find. As like all other sites if you sign you e-mail addres up you recieve exclusive offers and coupon codes to use when you checkout.

I hope that these cheap finds are usefull to you. I also want to know if you already use either of the products? If you do let me know are you a constant user, and what are your feelings about the product? You can also give me any other type of feed back. I hope you enjoy!!!
