Today we’d like to introduce you to Kreshia Fields.
Kreshia, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I’ve always known I was going to be a hairstylist because the joy I felt as a child every time I would style then take down my doll’s hair to only style again I still feel that joy today. Growing up, I wore so many different hairstyles because I loved trying new styles and dolls just wasn’t doing it for me anymore lol. My plan was to attend cosmetology school right after graduating high school but after losing my mother in a tragic car accident things went differently. I attended my first cosmetology school in 2007 and later on felt that wasn’t the school for me so dropped out after three months. At first, I was disappointed in myself because I felt I gave up but later on, I understood why things went the way they did. Timing is everything if your not ready to receive something in that timing you won’t and know I can see that wasn’t my time. In 2010, my husband and I had our 1st set of twins so at that point, I went full mommy mode and my goal had to put to the side until I could come back to it.
Then surprise three years later, I’m pregnant again with another set of twins so its full mommy mode times 4. Once the oldest set went to Pre-K I took that opportunity to go back to cosmetology school. I attended Paul Mitchell the school Esani and I took that opportunity with so much gratitude and it showed. It was so different from my first cosmetology school experience and it was because it was my TIME. During my time at Paul Mitchell I felt like a sponge I wanted to soak in as much information as I could. Attending school and raising four children under five years wasn’t easy but I was determined. I was awarded the Paul Mitchell spirit award and that made me proud because it’s a reminder that no matter how hard the road is no matter the obstacles being kind through it all is the key.
After graduating, I worked at a few different salons I learned a lot from each one but I never felt that was the place I belong so I knew it was time to take the leap of faith and get my salon suite. In December of 2018, I opened my salon suite and the journey along the way was very challenging but always putting GOD first will always be my way of getting things done. The things that were thrown on my path to stop me from getting to my goal gave me a strength I can only give GOD the credit for. The road isn’t easy but I’m doing what I love so it’s beyond worth it.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road hasn’t been easy because I’m still currently building my clientele but it’s worth every tear I’ve shed. As long as I stay dedicated to my vision it will all pay off.
