A bottle of blonding cream is Angela Barnes-Fitzgerald’s magic weapon. In her hands, it’s the ultimate tool for taking a client’s hair from drab to fabulous.
“I love highlighting. I like the transformation. I like the end result. I love to make people blonde.”
Angela graduated from The Educational Opportunity Center in Troy and started her hair career fifteen years ago, leaving an office job behind. She says her mom helped her realize her dream.
I’ve always had a passion for doing hair. I’ve been cutting and coloring my mom’s hair since I was thirteen years old. My mom pushed me and I’ve been doing it ever since. I owe it to my mom, who stood by me while I followed my dream. I like being artistic. I just love it.”
Angela worked in two other salons before knocking on Make Me Fabulous’s door. One year later, she’s thrilled she made the move to Make Me Fabulous, a warm-hearted, enthusiastic addition to #teamfab.
Inspiration is high on Angela’s priority list, saying #teamfab is one of many reasons she feels such passion for working at Make Me Fabulous. Angela raves about the culture at Make Me Fabulous and the huge impact her experience there has had on her life.Working with brides and creating up-dos for the bride and bridal party are also high on Angela’s list of favorite things about her career.
“I love the artistic nature of it. I love the excitement of how the brides are. It’s the most joyous day, so fun to be part of their day. I love the creativity. It’s relaxing for me. It’s like therapy. It can be stressful, but I love the whole aspect of it.”
