Many people may dread going to work everyday at their mundane 9-5 jobs. I, on the other hand, LOVE going to work everyday!

If you know me, you know how much I love the beauty industry and love being a stylist. For those of you that don't know me, let me explain to you why I am so passionate about my career

My passion and interest for the beauty industry began many years ago, but my professional journey started in 2007 when I attended Salon Professional Academy (SPA) to study cosmetology in Fargo, North Dakota. My drive to succeed was established when I was the only student in my class to graduate SPA with honors. At that time, I realized I did not want to have the job of a stylist; I wanted to make it a career.

After graduating from SPA, I was hired at Rheault and Friends Salon and Spa where I worked for four years. I am so thankful for the opportunities that came with my employment at Rheault and Friends. My experiences there helped me become the cosmetologist and person that I am today. For that, I am eternally grateful.

In April of 2012, I decided to take the next step in my career and become an independent business as a booth renter. I moved my location to Cloud 9 Salon and Day Spa. My decision to booth rent as Cally Jo Salon has been such an amazing journey. I have grown my business incredibly with hair and airbrush make-up for photo shoots and weddings, as well as in the salon with cuts, color, specialty services, spa services and much more. I am so pleased with my decision to open Cally Jo Salon at Cloud 9 Salon and Day Spa, it has truly been a dream come true.

Since I started in the beauty industry, I have always believed in giving my cliental the best possible experience when they sit in my chair and in order to do so, I am constantly taking classes to further my education. I have taken several in-salon classes which include Redken color classes as well as precision cutting and styling classes. I received the opportunity to take a class from a top Moroccan Oil educator and I was also certified as a Keritan Complex smoothing specialist.

Along with all of the in-salon training, I never wanted to settle for average and have always wanted to push myself in any way I could to become the best stylist I could possibly be! I have also taken many classes outside of the salon. I have attended the Redken Symposium, which is a three-day educational hair show in Wisconsin. I attended the Redken Color 911, where the top hair artists around the world showcase new trends, cuts and colors. I also received the honor to become a trained Pureology Expert in their amazing complete sulfate-free product line.

The more education I receive, the more I fall in love with this industry. The love for the beauty industry sparked an interest for me when it came to updos and making people feel special for their important occasions. This interest grew into a passion. I decided to complement that passion and it was then that I decided I wanted to become trained in airbrush makeup so I could make the package complete. I was trained by a makeup artist in Fargo and continue to grow my learning with classes, practice and a lot of fun but hard work. 

My airbrush techniques are not only for special events. I started working with a photographer to do hair and makeup for photoshoots of every kind: Boudoir, pinup, fashion, bridal, teen, and glamour. It is am amazing environment to work in and I love every minute of it. Making someone feel and look as beautiful as they are in the inside is such a rush.  It is so rewarding to see someone look at themselves and say “I feel absolutely gorgeous!” That is my ultimate goal and that is why I am in this industry to make every single person I work on feel that same way.

Aside from working wedding, photo shoots and getting to see my amazing clients everyday, I decided to take on one more exciting step. In the spring of 2013 I joined the team of Market America and am an official distributor of Motives Cosmetics. 

I fell in love with their custom blend line, where I have been trained to be a custom blend consultant to help people find the perfect foundation color for their skin; “Beauty in every shade.” If you have a hard time finding the right foundation color for you that is where my custom blend consulting comes in to play. It is an amazing company to work with and cannot wait to grow my team.
