We had the good fortune of connecting with Mallory Jade and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mallory, what role has risk played in your life or career?
Risk taking to me is necessary and the only way to go beyond your limits and achieve your ultimate desires and wildest dreams. To achieve the career I have today is literally by taking risk after risk. I chose to move away from my home state, with no promised salon, no promised anything, risking it all to make my name something more then I was taught was “possible” Leaving a salon I was being taken advantage of, before I had a guaranteed position at another salon because I KNEW I was meant for so much more. Choosing my clientele wisely, turning some away, risking not making money that service/day, so I can manifest the type of clientele that aligns with who I am… ultimately attracting the Income + clientele I desire. Risk has become a second language to me, I have become comfortable with being “uncomfortable” for the purpose of. It’s the only way to improve. You never know till you try, and if it doesn’t work out.. you learned something to help you grow, and it wasn’t mean to be. Because the truth is, everything happens exactly as it should, when it should.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am all about the energy, mind, body, and soul connection. Spirituality x sensuality of the feminine. There for, who you are, in each and every stage of your life goes hand in hand to your hair style and overall love you feel and give. Inward & outward flow. I really focus on who a person is, their aura energy, lifestyle, etc, to bring to life the perfect customized hair specific for them. Hair color is an art, I personally can not 100% re create a hair picture because each hair I design is so specific for the person. I say I specialize in color art & souls. I got to where I am by working hard, always being a “student” and knowing there is always room to grow and be better, not taking no for an answer, being so in tune with my highest self and knowing full heartedly what I deserve and believe, taking risks, evolving and accepting myself in all phases, trusting in my universal guidance, and making true connections. No it was not easy, not at all. Some times this life beats you down. There is always gonna be ups and downs in lifes journey. But it’s how you perceive every situation and take it into your own hands to make it positive and make it better! Know your purpose, what you’re meant for, and believe in that 10000%. Having that alignment within yourself creates balance, and a vibrational energy that gets sent out into the universe to attract what you desire. Belief and trust is EVERYTHING I want the world to know that everyone has their own timing and their own journey. Don’t compare yourself to others. You are amazing just the way you are and you are exactly where you are meant to be. Keep believing, and keep being authentically you. You don’t want to be like everyone else!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Im in California for business mainly so I really wouldn’t know to many things because Californians normally take me around everywhere 🙂

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Jay Wesley Olson, owner of my salon bespoke salon! The most amazing mentor I could ask for. I wouldn’t be the artist I am today without him and his belief in me! Alexis and David Thurston, owners of Butterfly Loft salon and PULP RIOT. They have always believed in me and pushed me to be more! They have helped me become the best artist and stay true to my authenticity, while giving me the most amazing opportunities!!
