Here is a photo of my salon, I have been a part if Sola Salons for a little over a year now and it is the best thing I did for myself and my career.
This is me, Pang
You guys, you do not know how many drafts of this I have done. It’s exhausting trying to talk about yourself without too many details. This is my last draft (probably not)
I never knew what I wanted to do. Well… yes I did but my grades didn’t reflect that I would do well in school to get to graphic designing. My first love was art. It was the only way I knew how to express myself because I was a sheltered asian. Before I applied to beauty school, I applied to MCAD I got in and turned it down. I took my shot at the Aveda Institute. Another artistic career path but less school and less papers. It changed my life.
My one goal with beauty school and still holds true today, I never want to go back to school, NEVER. So I had to make sure I was going to be okay with this creative career choice.
The last 10 years has been a huge hustle for me. But I also was young and I didn’t want to grow up. Even though I didn’t have deep roots with a salon, I still kept a steady following with kitchen hair. I would drive all over the Twin Cities after working my crappy salon jobs to do color and hair cutting in-home.
What really drove me into starting my own business was my move to LA In 2016. I went out there to try and pursue hair and makeup. Loosely tried and I wasn’t mature enough to stay and stick it out. My plan when I got home was nothing. So I thought why not try to rent a chair and make money that way. I started renting and that’s where my passion for hair was lit and I saw the full potential of this career. For once I was making money and was proud of everything I was doing.
In 2018 I moved my business to Sola Salons in Maplewood. Here I have full control on how I wanted to run my business, create a safe space for anyone, carry products I truly believe in, generate the clients I’ve always dreamed of, and still maintaining my creative career, how magical is that?
Who would’ve thought that the growing process with this career would be a roller coaster ride of emotional ups and downs. My tiny but mighty salon has brought me so much happiness and gives me a reason to keep it alive. I cannot imagine myself in a different position in life. I would like to thank myself for working hard, but most importantly anyone who has sat in my chair for the last 10 years, you guys rule the most.
I can not wait to share my space and work with you soon,
Your favorite Stylist
