We had the good fortune of connecting with Jordan Hix and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jordan, what habits do you feel helped you succeed?
• Consistency • Being ambitious (getting up early, not procrastinating) • Practicing mindfulness • Taking action despite being afraid or anxious
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Styled by Jordan is truly known for the intricate braids and effortless hairstyles I create. None of creating my style was easy. In fact, in beauty college I didn’t even know how to braid hair. When I set out to turn this passion into what it is today, I spent endless hours practicing on mannequins to models and offering free hairstyling. You don’t start day one being perfect at your craft. You don’t begin making $900 in 4 hours on day one. You build up to that. You grow and evolve but that’s all the fun of it.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
If my best friend were visiting for one week, here’s our itinerary! Coffee: • Better Buzz Coffee • Gran Havana Cigars (they have incredible coffee, I promise!) • S3 Coffee Bar. • Communal Coffee Eats: • Fig Tree Cafe (for brunch) • Madison on Park (both brunch & dinner are the best here) • Buona Forchetta (for an Italian dinner) • Island Prime (for a fancier dinner) • Humburtos Taco Shop (for the best California burrito) Places To Go: • Sunset Cliffs • Liberty Station • Coronado Beach • Balboa Park Shopping: • Pigment • Moniker General • Gold Leaf • Thread & Seed • Home & Hound
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Many people & things motivated my growth within my business and the industry. From my favorite books like Girl, Wash Your Face from Rachel Hollis, to my friends that own their own businesses, to my mom showing me true resiliency.
