I’ve been working from home all day, preparing for the week to come…I think most of what Stylist do is prep! Prepare an Image in your head then hunt for designers to help make your image come to life. Which involves a lot of leg work! Leg work meaning key tapping and mouth gabbing!
It’s been quiet a while since I’ve worked as a Stylist and it seemed that not only had I forgotten what a day of returns will do to the body but also what a week of trying to get Appointments will do to the mind!
The process of emailing and calling is mentally draining! It’s almost like being on an emotional roller coaster, one minute your up once you have the contact info to a specific showroom and the next minute your down when they send you an email saying they’re all booked up or unable to allow you to come in for whatever reason. I’m pretty much used to it and usually do things animal style and send out way more emails needed, so I figure if I send out 100 emails and make 50 calls I should at least end up with 10 or 15 appointments if I’m lucky!
I don’t think a lot of people realize all the work that goes into one look! I dont’ think people take into consideration the hard work, love and committment the teams behind the Artist put in! I understand you won’t like everything you see, but understand ppl work hard to produce every thing you see, no matter how big or small… We put in work!!!! So RESPECT that!
