Editor’s note: Answering The Purcell Register’s five questions this week is Tina Reimer, owner of Studio 221 Salon.
Q: Where did you go to cosmetology school?
A: I chose State Barber College in Oklahoma. I was trained to do men, women and children (family) cut and styles, perming and coloring.
Q: What piqued your interest in being a stylist?
A: I believe my interest was piqued at a young age when my mom gifted me with a Crissy doll with retractable hair.
Q: Was there a person or instance that got you interested?
A: After being a stay-at-home mom to a beautiful young daughter, I decided to take on a career. My daughter’s hair stylist encouraged me to go to hair school and told me I had a job waiting when I was done. I went for it, and looking back, it was the best decision I could have made for me and my daughter, Suni.
Q: What is the most gratifying part of your job?
A: The most gratifying 50 percent is knowing my clients leave feeling happy and 50 percent is being a listening ear when a client is going through a difficult season in life or celebrating with them through the joyous times in life. Over the years I have been blessed with so many clients that I’m honored to also call my friends.
Q: What do you find the most challenging?
A: The most challenging could be the constant and fast changes in our hair industry and being more prepared about what’s to come and educating myself to stay ready. It’s gratifying and a challenge and I’m here for it.
