Hello, my name is Anne Michelle. I am freeing people from unwanted hair permanently, with Electrolysis. I have been doing this for over 30 years….
Now probably most of you when you hear hair removal you think pain. One client that helps that image, stand out for being the most noisiest lady. A farmers wife. I was holding my clinic behind a curtain within a hair salon, Vanity Fair. This lady had had Electrolysis before and was very happy to have found me as I am quick and gentle. I had cleared hair from her face, now she wanted her bikini line done. But when ever I worked on it she would become very loud. “ Ooh, ooh, aaah!” She was fine, it just helped her cope with the sensation by expressing with noise. Not long after starting her bikini line. She came in. The hairdressers were quiet. This lady started “Oooh,ooh aaah,oooh” I chatted away. At the end she thanked me, paid me, rebooked and off she went. Well, the senior hairdresser came and said “what were you doing to that poor women, do you like hurting people?” “Not at all” I explained “in fact clients remark how gentle I am.
This woman needed to be noisy to help her take her mind off the sensation. When that woman came again. I mentioned that the staff were alarmed by her noise. So she went and talked to the staff. Could they please get their hairdryers going when she comes, to muffle her sounds. And thus she would ask the staff each time when she came in, “please get your hairdryers going.”Ooh, ooh, aah!
I was born in Wanganui. The youngest of 3.
By 27 years old, I was divorced with 2 children- a girl 8yrs and a boy 18 months. My mother suggested I train as an Electrologist. ”What’s that?” “Permanent hair removal with Electrolysis.”
I got passionate! It became my focus: “to free people from unwanted hair”
I remarried at 35. Had two more children, a boy and a girl, and became self-employed or as I’d like to think of it – self managing.
I needed to step away from my “the beautician” competition/image, to show my specialist status and emphasized the Electrologist.
2006 I wrote a business plan. A business plan, which gives forward thinking.
To put down what I really want, and how to do it.
Since 2008, I have brought in a computer program database to simplify the paper work and be more effective for my client’s welfare. I am looking to the future. Preparing for retirement. Hiring a staff member.
Being self-managing is a constant challenge. I’m always looking for ways to improve myself, and improve my business – Anne Michelle Electrologist.
