Today we’d like to introduce you to Savannah Curbelo-Thomas.
Savannah, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
“This is what I want to do… hair. I really want to do hair.” I was in the 10th grade and had styled a couple of girlfriends and my own hair for prom. Shortly after, my bestie let me cut her hair on my bedroom floor. (Thanks Linds, haha.) Once I felt that creative energy, I was in love. Really from the time I could walk, I was stealing lipstick and high heels from my mom and Abuela. You see… I’m half Cuban and we Cuban women are EXTRA! It was meant to be haha. So, I did pursue some traditional college education after high school but I just couldn’t figure out what could keep me motivated. I was bored. And I needed a change. At this point, I was a single mom of soon to be two kids and I needed to make some money and I knew I needed to be in control of my success at this point also. I had to be real with myself and really ask what it meant to ME to be successful. I enrolled in cosmetology school. This time, I was going to choose passion over security and it’s one of the best decisions I have ever made.
So, as you know, we’re impressed with your business – tell our readers more, for example, what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
So, essentially, I am a half social artist, half mad scientist. Over the course of my career, I have spent the majority of my time doing lightening services ie balayage, foiling, global bleaching, and color correcting with a wide range of cutting techniques. I am probably most known for my honesty and my head massages! Haha. I mean once you get a relaxing head massage, does anything else really matter? I think what I am most proud of as a brand are my creative and scientific approaches while improving the hairs health. The trust that you build with your clients when they know you have their best interest at heart is irreplaceable. As far as what sets me apart? Eeeehhhhh, I’m just a girl with a passion. Out here, hustlin hair services. And I love it, I really do. So, there is your answer, haha!
Who have you been inspired by?
Wow, I really don’t know where to start on that one. One thing that has never been lacking in my life is the presence of strong women. From my Mom’s unrelenting drive to succeed and care for her family, my Aunt Shirley’s support, time, and understanding. My sisters, Paulina, Izzy, & Kennedy, who never fully understand my crazy but support me 1000xs over. To so many more aunts, grandmothers, cousins. Seriously, the men have to be careful in our family! Haha! And I have truly been blessed with some of the most amazing friends. From my crazy boos in Arkansas to my even crazier boos in Texas. Never underestimate the power of women supporting women.
