In 1983, at the age of sixteen, I entered the wonderful beauty industry, and immediately, I had a vision of owning a salon one day. I knew that owning a salon could not happen overnight, and I needed to have some experience before this dream could be fulfilled. Over the years, I was able to advance to different levels within the business. Many years of persistence led me from shampoo girl to assistant, assistant to stylist, and then from stylist to owner/educator. I want my passion for this business to motivate future hairstylists, or those already in the field, to explore many avenues within the fields of beauty and fashion. I will offer you ways to succeed as a hairstylist, cosmetologist, or salon owner, and I will provide suggestions, tips, and guidelines that I have learned along the way. This book will give you an insight to experiences that are unique to working in a hair salon environment. It has always been my desire to change lives through hairstyles and cosmetology, one client at a time. I sincerely hope that what you read in the chapters ahead will inspire and encourage you to pursue your dreams surrounding your career choices and your daily life. This book was designed to not only give you the knowhow for the salon industry, but also to share ideas of balancing life, work, relationships, and family. So if you are a man or a woman who is interested in: personal growth, improving the quality of service in the workplace, learning how to increase sales, retaining clients, and staying energized by your work, then I suggest you get yourself a copy of this book and embrace a new chapter in your life.

Hello and welcome! My name is Jacqueline Capatolla. I have been in the beauty and fashion industry since 1983 when, at the age of sixteen, I was volunteering as a shampoo girl for a high-end downtown salon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I learned the ropes and my way around the salon, and I found my entry-level position to be so exciting and energizing, and it was a great introduction to my future career. Twenty-seven years after working at my first job in a hair salon, I opened my own shop in the downtown area of Pittsburgh, PA, so I feel I have come full circle. I also continue to own and operate my first salon, which is located in a community that is south of the downtown area. This career journey has been truly exceptional, and I feel that I have been extremely blessed to be working in a profession that I find to be exciting nearly three decades beyond my first job as a hair stylist. I also feel very honored to be an entrepreneur who has the ability to create opportunities for others. I have always written down my thoughts and ideas over the years, and after reviewing all of my notes, I had the urge to write this book. I wanted to be able to share with you my experiences and knowledge that I have gained through this process over the past 29 years. The purpose of this book is to truly inspire you to follow your dreams and your passion. The past three years of writing this book have been very rewarding to me personally. I have been able to see all that I have accomplished during my career through hard work and perseverance. This book is really for anyone who is interested in starting a business or anyone who wants to be successful in their career path. The beauty industry is close to my heart, so I chose to write about this particular business. However, this book can be an inspiration for someone who has thoughts about starting any type of business and for anyone who has the drive and ambition to be self-employed someday.
