Today we’d like to introduce you to Katurah Adams.
Hi Katurah, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I started out as a freelance makeup artist! I always loved makeup and beauty as a young child. Growing up, I would sneak into my mother and grandmother’s makeup bag playing with their foundation and lipstick. I have always worked in the corporate world started at the age 18! In 2010 I was living in Atlanta and I had been laid off work. I started watching makeup tutorials on YouTube, started buying all the products and starting practicing on myself. Everything I learned from here on out was self-taught!
Fast forward, I decided to go to esthetics school because I wanted to do more than just makeup. So in 2018 I graduated from Atlanta School of Esthetics and two months after graduation, I moved to Dallas, TX. While in school, I knew I did not want to work for anyone, and I put my plan into motion to take the plunge and become a business owner! It didn’t happen right away I had a few bumps in the road, but the beginning of 2021, I stepped out on faith and found my salon suite!
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?
It has not been an easy road! I moved states a few times, so I always had to start from scratch! I have no rich family or financial support! It’s been all me! My own money, blood, sweat and tears! It’s been moments where I wanted to give up and say this isn’t for me I can just go back to the corporate world and know for sure I will have a steady paycheck! Deep down inside, though, I knew God gave me my gifts and my passion for this field. Its been rough being in a city with no friends, no family and building my clientele! I am definitely still learning every day but the risk is always worth the reward!
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Touch of Katurah Beauty Bar is located inside an upscale salon suite in Frisco,TX. I am a licensed Esthetician, Makeup Artist. I specialize in Organic skincare and luxury beauty services for men and women. What sets me apart is my strong faith in God, my passion, my resilience and my love for people and making them look and feel their best. I’m most proud of my brand is that I know when a person sit in my chair or lays on my table, they will leave feeling inspired, encouraged, and beautiful. In the near future, I would like to start my own skincare line, cosmetics line and be able to travel all around the world to make people feel beautiful. I currently offer facials, makeup, brow tinting/lamination, lash extension and will be adding microblading in the near future
The crisis has affected us all in different ways. How has it affected you and any important lessons or epiphanies you can share with us?
Yes, I have learned that life is precious and you only have one. You could be here today and gone tomorrow! So live life to the fullest! No regrets.
