Beginning was easy for you?
Luisa: Of course not. The beginning was very difficult for me since I had to deal with very special customers, especially with children who move all the time. With children you have to be very patient and very careful when cutting their hair because they have very sensitive skin and I was afraid of hurting them with my Clips.
The best part of your Job?
Luisa: See people happy after they see their cut. I enjoy sharing my experiences with the clients. Not only a good cut matters but a good talk also.
How do you learn new haircut/ styling?
Luisa: Learning from people with good skills as I always seeing those People who are barbers as well. Who has more skills then me specially with one of my favorite barber who is a girl.
Luisa: I been following a Barber for 4 years on Instagram. She is my inspiration. Her name is Johanna(Instagram Profile).
Instagram and online platform helped you a lot?
What are your hobbies?
Workout, soccer, then she replied “lol” and said Eating.
Do you have any Future plans?
Luisa: I live each day fully and I create good memories with my 3 kids who are my life and everything. To stay with them happy forever with wonderful memories is my only plan.

I Asked Luisa if she wants to share her view on a newcomers and anything she would like to tell and encourage Females to become a Barber and here’s what she said:
“They have to have an attitude, positivism you would have to like it of what your doing, be prepare for everything. Being focused on what they do, being patient, being positive, cutting hair is not easy but neither is it impossible to learn. Remember you get what you give.
Everyone can be a barber but not everyone can do a good job.”
