Today we’d like to introduce you to Hilda Colmenarez.
Hilda, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I am an industrial engineer from Venezuela. I worked for 5 years in sales. One day I decided to start my own business and that is when the idea to have my owned beauty salon came into place since then I have been completely dedicated to this business.
By that time, I began to prepare myself in different areas of the beauty business, but I fell in love with one of them “Eyelash Extensions”. I started to practice more and more and, in my country, that opened the doors for me to become in a beauty specialist. In 2016, I was able to meet many people who came to me for the quality of my work. Due to the terrible economic and social problems that Venezuela was facing, my husband and I decided to leave our country. In july of 2017 my family and I arrived in Miami, where a studied the career of beautician and I dedicated myself to work in the world of beauty until today. Since then, I have been working in Miami with excellence using the best materials to provide to my clients the best service.
Today, with three years of experience, I started to teach this beautiful but demanding job. I love to teach and share my knowledge motivating women, who like me, can fall in love with this job. I am very grateful to God, my family and to this beautiful country that opened its door to me.
Has it been a smooth road?
I could say yes, but not impossible. It is very important to do something that you like so much that you do not call it work. Learning this job is not easy, but if you train with expert professionals and work with the best materials, you can achieve simply stunning jobs. You just need perseverance and love for what you do.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into Eyelashbyhilda story. Tell us more about it.
I am a beautician and specialist in eyelash extensions certified in Skin Care by the state of Florida. I specialize in make eyelash extension and in eyelash extension trainings because I love the way it changes the look of the people and the fact that we can look beautiful at all times. What distinguishes me is that take the necessary amount of time to recommend what type of eyelash goes with each client according to their eyes expressions and likes. Today I owned my Instagram and Facebook page where I conduct a lot of my marketing and where a show to the public my work and my specialty. I also used these two platforms make publicity the classes that I am at the present giving in the spa Lash Doll Miami Studio.
What do you feel are the biggest barriers today to female leadership, in your industry or generally?
In today’s world there are not barriers for women to become leaders. We have shown to have the strength and leadership skills to do it. It is a fact that we have some women Presidents, Deputies, CEOs of big companies, etc. In the world of beauty we are the main consumers which allow us to be easily familiar in this area. Uniting studies, professionalism, organization and perseverance to work and do the things we can motivate many women to achieve success.
