Our readers want to get to know you first, tell us about YOU what is your story?
Hello! My name is Alyssa Sanchez I am 27 years young, and a Colorado native! Momma of a 3 year old precious baby boy! Owner of Shear Beauty salon located in Greeley, Colorado!
Now let's talk business, what do you do? Have you always wanted to have your own business- what inspired you to go down this journey?
I am currently self-employed at Shear Beauty by Alyssa. My primary focus is hair for both men and women! I graduated cosmetology school in 2014 and shortly after I attended barber school. Half of my clientele is men, I love clippers, so men’s cuts are something I’m very passionate about. I knew when I was 16 years old I would one day open my own business/salon doing hair. My sister Jasmine and I would stay up really late doing our hair for the following school day. Since then it’s always been something I enjoy doing. It makes me really happy every morning when I open the doors at Shear Beauty; I feel accomplished. I’ve worked at multiple salons and barbershops the 5 years I’ve been licensed. It’s been an interesting journey and I’ve embraced it along the way, it’s really molded me into the stylist I am today! I am truly so blessed and grateful for creating opportunity for myself.
What advice do you have for moms who want to start a business?
Life is full of lessons, what has motherhood taught you?
Motherhood has taught me joy. It’s the sweetest joy being a mom. It has taught me love with no boundaries, kindness, patience and maturity. “Ain’t no hood like MOTHERHOOD.”
