A Dose Of Inspo

After years of being asked to help friends (or friends of friends) with their hair and makeup, Caroline Allec, started Blush and Braids. in 2012. Since weddings typically take place on weekends, Allec told us that her business never interferes with her full-time job, which she tends to Monday through Friday. However, she still needs to work a few extra hours every week in order to prep. Her advice to other Side Hustlers out there, “…keep working on perfecting your skills. It can be easy to take a break once your business is booming, but don’t let yourself lose the desire to always to improve your craft.” [Swirled]
