Meet Tanjineka “TanjiTyishe” Hall

Today we’d like to introduce you to Tanjineka “TanjiTyishe” Hall.

Hi Tanjineka “TanjiTyishe”, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
Starting my own business was never the intention. 2019 I took lash training From my lash tech at the time to actually learn another craft. And for a little extra money in addition to my corporate job at the time. Two weeks before my lash training class, I was laid off from my job of two years as a Medical Charge Entry Clerk. Life was shifting and I wasn’t paying attention to the dynamics of the shift. My support system was 1000%, so no worries there. I continued to job search but still lashing at home at the time. With no success during the job search, my clients were steadily growing. Me again not paying attention. I never missed a bill and continued to maintain the life I was living while working corporate. Ok! Now I receive a call from a local lash bar to work as a lash tech. Me thinking, ok I can work here while still job searching. My clients grew greater and larger. My technique starts to get better. The urge to search for a job was getting slim for me and I became full-time so quickly. When I would get off I would be too tired to search.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
More like a“Blessing in disguise.”

Fast forward to 2020 brings Covid-19 pandemic. Everything shuts down including salons (including where I had been employed). Honestly, Covid 19 had me so afraid with panic. I was afraid to go back into a salon with multiple people working. This definitely encouraged me to search for a small suite to operate individually so then I would be able to control my own environment to provide safety for clients and myself. During the shutdown I found a small business suite in Downtown Birmingham, AL I applied and got approved three days before the city News announced that the governor released the shutdown.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a 2x’s Certificate Lash Artist and Certified Brow Artist with a main focus to enhance your total beauty. What set me aside from other Lash Artists is I promote and help maintain healthy lashes. My Lash isolation is LIT lash for lash, and my Lash Retention is BEASTING hold sets on for more than five weeks with fill with at least 45% lashes remaining. I’ve really come a long way with this. Lashing may look easy-breezy, but yet it’s a major challenge. It took a lot of prayers, practice, patience, studying, and research. I’ve learned so much and stayed up to date with the latest education and guidelines in regards to lashing. This is only the beginning, it gets Greater Later.

Have you learned any interesting or important lessons due to the Covid-19 Crisis?
“Blessings From a World Crisis”
