I'm a tom boy at heart. When i'm home or on a day off, I wear jeans or shorts and a basic tee. I don't wear makeup, I allow my skin to breathe. I have the same hair style (a mum bun, that I've been rocking long before becoming a mum). How am I going to be taken seriously as a beauty therapist if I don't look like one?
I go way to long in between eye brow waxes and sometimes (allot of the time) I'm looking a little fluffy. How am I going to be taken seriously as a beauty therapist if I don't look like one?
My finger nails are short, I have dry cuticles from washing my hands 50 times a day to keep my clients and baby Sonny safe from germs. I don't like the thought of gel polish destroying my nails, so I don't wear polish. How am I going to be taken seriously as a beauty therapist if I don't look like one?
My hair is curly and has a GAZILLION flyaways which i try to tame with bobby pins.
I gained 20kgs when i was pregnant with Sonny.
My uniform is a little snug.
My eyelashes aren't long enough.
I don't smell like roses and have a beautiful soft voice.

You've just read my mind. I have all of these thoughts on the daily. How ridiculous, right?
I'm here to tell you that you are strong and beautiful in your natural form. I welcome you with open arms into my salon AS YOU ARE.
This year I am focusing on me, as i learn to love myself as a mum, a business owner and a beauty therapist. I am "normal", I am just like you. I'm unpolished and flawed. I do not expect you to be anything but that, and I am on a journey to learning to accept myself in the same way.
Hi, I'm Caity, I don't look like a beauty therapist, but i AM a beauty therapist. Why do I need to LOOK like my CAREER? I don't.
