NETWORKING: DON’T BE AFRAID!

NETWORKING: DON’T BE AFRAID!

Introducing Heidi Akpaette

Heidi Akpaette is a hairstylist for weddings and bridal styling, which has been her passion for ten years. She started her business, 139 Hair by Heidi, with the intention of providing onsite wedding hairstyling to brides and she hasn’t looked back! Networking is key to her success, as it is for all of us. In the last few years, she has been able to grow to offer talented makeup artistry as well as an intimate team of stylists. She is passionate about serving brides and honored to be with them on their wedding days.  She also started the Up Do Collective, an online collective of stylists of all levels who want support with their creativity, learning, and collaboration. I asked her to write about her philosophy on networking for The Stylist Lounge. Without further ado, here’s Heidi. Blog, and the Up Do Collective.
