ABOUT Patience B. Moore
I was never a big hair and make-up buff. In high school I had my hair professionally shampooed and styled once a week because I didn't know how do it myself. Later in college, many of my friends had dreadlocs, and I began to twist their hair. Hey, who would have known that I would be really good at it. Next thing I know, I'm styling and cutting hair.
After graduation, I realized that I wasn't happy in my career choice. I called my parents and had a long talk with them. They asked me, "Baby, what makes you happy?" With tears in my eyes, I responded, "Doing (sniffle sniffle) doing hair." My father said, "Then why don't you do what makes you happy?" That week, I enrolled in cosmetology school.
Make- up is another story. I knew I wanted to do make-up but I didn't know how. I had recently read Reggie Wells make-up book and he said "the best make-up school is the cosmetic counter." So I started working at a local department store make-up counter, giving makeovers whenever and on whoever I could.
One year later, I found myself finished with cosmetology school, at an award winning salon in Brentwood, TN striving to become an amazing stylist/make-up artist! Fast forward to 8 years later, I found myself at one of Franklin's most sought after salons still coloring and cutting hair.
I have worked numerous award shows, NYC Fashion Week, and with various celebrities. I've been blessed to travel the world for hair. I truly love what I do. Being a hair stylist and make-up artist isn't just about the outer look. It is about showing an already beautiful person how glamorous and stunning they can be.
