Day after day I would sit and think for hours how I can better my craft, I always think about how I need to network more but then, I would back track. My mind would full up with images and situations from the past where I would just say forget it. Many times I would think about just quitting this industry but it’s in my blood.
I could never understood why salon lifestyle is so catty! I know that competition is healthy but at the same how can I do my job to make someone feel better when half of the time I’m concerned with the emotional and stress causing aspect of this industry. There have been so many times that I would go home crying not because I didn’t have a productive day but because not feeling comfortable in my working evironment! Who would want to work anywhere that they don’t feel at home!
Instead of isolating my situation I started to research and even watch some reality shows that reflect exactly what I am going through. My findings were exactly what I thought,I knew that I am not the only one that goes through the depressing and catty nature of the salon! It’s so bad that many stylist decides to either keep bouncing from shop to shop or they simply just freelance! Now I’ve done both , but trust me by the time I graduated from beauty school and finished my apprenticeship I was both exhausted but motivated more than ever!
Instead of allowing the negativity to defer my art like I have been doing I’ve just will let go and let God! He knows my dreams of changing this whole industry! One day at a time I will get out of this tank full of sharks and swim free in the ocean! In other words do what I came to do make ppl beautiful
When the 2015 Grammy’s was spectacular! I couldn’t wait to see what fashions these icons were going to bring. Some icons I was actually shocked because they transformed and left their shenanigans at home except for Kanye but we all knows he’s unpredictable; which is why we love him so much. But him and his lady sure step their game up and broke the Internet fully clothed.Lady Gaga was a complete shocker! She kept it simple but elegant. Beyoncé of course kept it regal especially her ring! But last but not least my fellow island girl Rihanna broke barriers and let the world know that they would never know until the time because she is different and that she is an timeless icon.
Elegance was the theme and so was the fashion for some reason this year a lot of the red carpet fashions was phenomenal, different but “dapper” as my Yaya would call it. Yea I did just say “dapper”!
In my Nana days fashion was nice and neat, they made sure that everything would fit them perfectly, because what you wear do represent your first impression and sometimes that’s all you have is that one chance!
With that one chance, for that one night where the whole world tune in to see their favorite musicians and icons they had to make a statement. They had to be dapper for the night. These five icons defined Dapper!
This year Grammys to me was very refreshing because you don’t need to show too much to make a statement or to get noticed all you need is to be dapper!
Do you think that they did a good job representing what dapper means?
Who am I? I am Cece Shearimani I am a hair stylist/MUA that has a futuristic look on hair, fashion and beauty! From since I was a little girl I was mesmerized by the art of cosmetology and the art of fashion! I wanted to know all and everything about these two. The visual and emotional stimulations that they provide was something that I truly could not get enough of.
Everyday I would notice that how much my culture and environment would make me think how can I make my mark or as many would stay what is my legacy! And everyday I would ask myself that same question.
Through hair, fashion and beauty I want to change the world! Shearimani knows that every living thing on this earth has a unique purpose and Job and it’s my job to magnify, celebrate and enhance it through my art!
Being artistic us to be free and I want to be free and so show the world what freedom looks like through my eyes. I just want to be free, welcome to my world! A place where beauty plus fashion equals you! Be you and do you!
P.S. One day I was really just laying in bed and thinking how can I reach my audience and how? That’s when something clicked and I realized what other way than to start a blog. I have always been a fan of blogging because of the freedom of speech! So please feel free to be free as well!
