Today we’d like to introduce you to Tamara Amador.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve always had a passion and the hands to make someone feel beautiful. I’m the girl my friends call if they want me to do their hair or makeup. I naturally take over & when I am in the moment I feel just like Wonder Woman…unstoppable! When I first started Pure Hollywood Beauty three years ago, I never thought my vision and my business would grow as big as it has. I was a waitress at a restaurant and just finished Cosmetology school. When I graduated my brother was moving to North Carolina to attend college. I knew immediately I had the opportunity to make his small bedroom into my studio. I quit my day job and went full throttle with this new exciting business venture. I started with small services such as waxing brows and luckily my friends from my former waitress job came and supported me. That’s how I started building my business…little by little. Currently I have my sister Aixa working with me…my partner in crime lol. She’s worked in a Medical Spa performing laser hair removal so she has experience in the field. Our goal is to have an innovated space where women can shop for all their needs…a one stop shop! Currently, we are providing Lash Extensions of all types, Special facials, BB glows, teeth whitening and Permanent Makeup. We also specialize in shaping and creating the best-looking set of brows. We’ve built a reputation as the best in the business when it comes to that. We also train future lash & brow artists who want to explore the beauty route. Our unique style is based on providing quality and building relationships with our clients! Our return rate Is 100%. We make sure our clients are the happiest when they walk out that door!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Like every business that gets started, it has its up and downs. Especially going into an industry where now it’s overpopulated by lash techs everywhere, it’s almost hard to get those loyal clients. That’s why I believe building a relationship with a client, is so important in this industry because they will remember you and will trust in you especially if they walk out a happy client! There is alot of competition out there but I always say what stands is a lash artist over a lash tech… BE A LASH ARTIST! Lash artist are innovators of new techniques and never stop learning. Don’t feel discouraged because there are so many lash techs out there that be unique and STAND OUT! If that doesn’t help, just take a look at the bread aisle and see how much competition there is but there isn’t anything like the Brand you love! Go hard, never give up and look at your work be your biggest critique because there is always room for improvement and NEVER STOP LEARNING!
Please tell us about Purehollywood Beauty.

But we are mostly known for our amazing work in Lashes and brows. Our clients travel from everywhere just to get their volume, mega volume or classics lashes and of course our long-lasting brow shape and tint. We also specialize in permanent makeup such as ombre’ brows, eyeliner, and lip stain. Our brand is most proud of the way we expand our services because we are sticklers on finding out what new services on the market might work best for our clients. We observe and execute. Our team is pretty strong and without my team, we wouldn’t have the marketing tactics we do, we use our platforms with intention and that’s how we are able to build a strong and returning customer other than building trust-worthy relationships.
Often it feels as if the media, by and large, is only focused on the obstacles faced by women, but we feel it’s important to also look for the opportunities. In your view, are there opportunities that you see that women are particularly well positioned for?
We are now in a world where women are running the world! I’m so happy more and more women are stepping out of their comfort zone and following their passions of whatever that may be! We are now in an era where social media allows us to have our own businesses which are an amazing tool for anyone who wants to follow their dreams. For me, it was starting my own business of making women feel beautiful at all time. I’m always empowering women to follow their own dreams whether it’s big or small. I’m always reminded where I started which was in a small bedroom and branched out to now working with my own employees! I always tell my fellow colleagues always strive for the best, set goals and never give up! Use social media as a positive platform and always use it with intention because its an amazing opportunity to start up a business!
