Introduce yourself and profession to our readers:
Hey Beauties! My name is Star Johnson and I'm a Licensed Aesthetician specializing in beauty treatments and skin care. I'm the owner of BeautyMark Studio in Atlanta and when I'm not enhancing beauty I'm writing! I'm the author of Love Drug Book Series!
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest?
Actually I ran from the beauty industry, I thought it wasn't for me. My mom was a hair stylist for over 30 years, I grew up in a hair salon. My inspiration has and will always be my mom. I saw her open two hair salons as a kid, and eventually balance a consistent clientele and a thriving real estate career. So, as people say I got it honest!
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
The best advice I can give is something that was shared with me, Be Motivated - Don't Mimic. I learn so much from others in this industry and the best lesson is there room for all of us!
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
My biggest professional challenge would be reinventing my business every year. Clients get bored with complacency, and I strive to keep them engaged and excited about what's new at BeautyMark and the beauty industry in general.
What is next for your brand/business in 2017?
BeautyMark is embarking on a new territory! I'm also a writer and I'm in the process of finishing my current Book Series Love Drug and by mid 2017 I plan on starting another series titled BeautyMark about the Beauty industry from behind the chair! Lots of short stories and good laughs!
