Hey Claire! It's so great to have you as our first featured business on the blog! I want start by asking you to introduce yourself, what sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?
First off, my name is Claire Basescu I was born and raised in Uniontown. I started in the beauty industry in 2012 and in January if 2016 I went off on my own as an independent stylist and makeup artist. As well as being in this industry I am also a full time college student majoring in teaching (prek-4 and dualing in special education). In the little free time I have I enjoy spending time with family and friends, working out, traveling and experiencing new things!
So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located.
I work out of Michael Politos Hair studio located at 37 S Beeson in Uniontown. At the salon I offer services including: Color, cut, wax, styling as well as natural and airbrush makeup. I also work as a freelance makeup and stylist going on location for weddings, proms and other special events!
Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?
One of my favorite parts of doing what I do is making others feel great about themselves. Whether it be a new cut and color or their makeup on their wedding day, seeing their reaction when they see each other for the first time is truly priceless! I also enjoy the creativity of my job and how each and every client is different.
Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work?
I strive for my clients to be 100% satisfied with all of their services!
Is there any ways in which your business gives back to the community?
For the past year I have been an active member of FYPN (Fayette Young Professionals Network). I try to get involved in as many activities and fundraisers they have to offer. As well as being a member of FYPN, each year for prom I contact a local high school to ask if they have a student in mind who I could offer a free makeup and formal style for them for their prom night. I am always wanting to get more involved in the community and am always looking for ways I can give back more, any ideas are greatly appreciated!
