Stylist Spotlight: Emily
If you’ve been following along with our blog posts, you’re probably familiar with our celebrations when it comes to our stylists. Our entire team here at Posh is what makes our salon so special. The people behind the scenes and behind the chairs are the people who make our guests’ experiences so positive.
Today, we’re highlighting one of our newest Stylists, Emily. Emily moved here from Charleston, South Carolina, and began working at Posh in March. As someone who always enjoyed doing her friends’ hair, it wasn’t until a few years ago that she decided to take the leap of faith and become a stylist. After finding herself ready for a change, she decided to leave her hometown in West Virginia and make the move to Charleston. It was here that her friends and family encouraged her to expand her talents and it was here that she enrolled in cosmetology school.
After graduating from Paul Mitchell the School in Charleston, she began doing hair until her move to Williamsburg in March. After buying a house with her soon to be husband (yes, her wedding hair and makeup will be done by the Posh team!) and their dog Major, she has enjoyed exploring the area. While she still loves getting the chance to go home to West Virginia when she can to spend time with family, kayak, or enjoy the mountains, she’s excited about her adventures ahead here in Williamsburg.
In her time off, you can find her spending time with her fiance and dog or sitting by the pool enjoying the summer. In the salon, you can find her behind the chair giving clients sun-kissed highlights that blend flawlessly.
To get to know Emily a little bit more, read on below for her answers to some questions about her life here at Posh!
What attracted you to/brought you into Posh in the first place?
Posh was my first pick when I moved to Williamsburg. I searched for the best and I definitely received it! Posh seemed so polished and refined. Also, the continuing education was a HUGE deciding factor for me. We get the opportunity to be taught by amazing artists from Aveda. How awesome is that?!
How is Posh different than other salons?
Posh has a certain vibe that you feel when you walk in. Everyone is positive and confident. That type of energy is contagious to others!
How do you start your days at Posh?
I start with a great cup of coffee and a positive mindset!
What are some of your favorite things about working at Posh?
I absolutely love my coworkers. I couldn’t ask for a better work family. I have been so warmly welcomed by everyone. It’s hard to make friends when you move to a new town, but these people have made it easy!
What are some of your favorite things about working with clients?
Everyone has a story. I love hearing where people are from, where they’ve been, and where they’re going.
Do you have any favorite memories so far?
Sometimes you have the best conversations while folding laundry. These are probably my favorite times!
What are your goals for the future?
I just want to do my best at whatever life sends my way!
