The last year has seen a meteoric rise in the hairdressing industry.
Amberley Barber’s work in 2015 saw her earn $30,000 a year.
Barber told NHL.com she is a professional hairderer.
She has since moved to a new position and is looking for more work, but still hopes to work at the salon for the rest of her life.
Barber said she began hairdering in the early 2000s after watching her mother work in a salon in California.
“I wanted to work as a hairdressed professional because it was such a glamorous career,” Barber said.
Her father was also a haberdasher.
The idea of working as a professional was something she grew up wanting to pursue.
So when Barber decided to pursue hairdeling, it was an easy choice.
In addition to earning a salary of $35,000 annually, Barber said she also made $40,000 in the year prior.
After earning that, she said she was able to make more than $60,000.
It’s not uncommon for a person in the industry to earn between $40 and $60K a year, Barber told NHL News.
For her, it’s about being flexible, not about going to extremes, she added.
But Barber said that wasn’t the case in 2015.
If you’re in the top 1% and you work for $40K a month, you’re not going to get a promotion, she noted.
There’s a certain amount of money that you can get for a lot of years and I think that’s where you make a difference, she told NHLNews.com.
Even though Barber is in her late 20s, she says she’s been working at the same salon for over a decade.
At this point in time, Barber is the only person in her family to work in the profession.
We’re a family-owned business, she explained.
As a result, Barber hopes to continue working her way up the ranks and help her family continue to make a living.
You have to keep working at it to make the sacrifices that are necessary to keep a career going, Barber added.
“You have a responsibility to the people that you love and the people you care about and the families that you work with, Barber explained.”
I think that the reason we’re here, it has nothing to do with money, it just has to do to be able to live your life the way you want to live it and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for that.
