Ive retired from the hair industry, because that wasn’t the artist I wanted to be.
Hair was a transition from the military, and a job that paid me decent. There were several cool barbershops coming up and I wanted to get on the bandwagon and saw a way to monetize my artistic abilities.
I went into hair thinking it was the adult option, and I quit perusing my art, and focused on hair.
Now that’s over and I can do the art I’ve always wanted to do, so that’s what I’m going to do, I’m much happier anyways and my art isn’t being invaded by toxic environments.
