Stylist Bionka Alston
United States - Raleigh/ Durham / Chapel Hill
Stylist Bionka Alston - Hello my name is Bionka Alston. I am one of the Triangles top innovative stylist for more than 10 years. Healthy lifestyles are a must today. People want everything from head to toe to radiate. Healthy hair is more than just a glossy shine. It comes from within. People are misinformed when it comes to having beautiful, healthy hair. Whether its naturally curly, straight, or coiled, hair should be beautiful...and you should feel and act like yours is. Hair extensions are such a big part of our society today. People dont realize that too much of this is not conducive for follicles to produce healthy shiny hair. Everything is okay in moderation. I am not against using commercial hair, I am however for healthy hair. I believe that many consumers have not been properly educated in even the basics of hair care. It is a licensed professional stylists duty to make sure that every client is educated.
What is your business goal?
One of my business goals is to increase my client base to support a salon, spa, and boutique. Educate people about choices that will benefit them totally, not just in one area of life. It is not just about making money or having a large business for me. People need to know that they can count on their stylists for sound accurate advice, and if they dont know the answer then at least they know that their professional stylist will stick with them through it.
What is your business history?
I have worked in salons as well as owned my own salon. I have many years of experience in hair care. I am a stylist who doesnt just believe in you looking good when you leave my chair. I want you to be able to maintain your style and have the confidence you left my chair with. Healthy hair is a reflection of both the stylist and the client.
Any tips about your industry for our users?
Just know that you get exactly what you pay for. A person that has not been properly educated cannot educate you, nor can they offer any solutions to any problems that arise. Proper hair and beauty knowledge is an art and skill that cannot just be "picked up".
What are your long term goals?
To have a chain of Salons, spas, and boutiques that educate consumers totally. To let people know the dangers of relaxer damage, what diabetes does to hinder hair growth. The effects of weight loss or gain on healthy hair and skin. The benefits of protein for the total you.
