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

Hi Teresa, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
How long it takes to become successful. It takes a lot of days of not being busy at first and taking the time to promote yourself. It’s easy to get discouraged and wonder if you’ve made the right choice.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Nothing good ever comes easy. I’m in an industry where there are so many other talented stylists. I’ve always known my purpose was to create art. I see every head of hair as a canvas. Working with colors and meeting beautiful and amazing people along the way. You are not going to be everyone’s cup of tea, and everyday is not going to be a good day. This was hard for me to wrap my head around in the beginning. But, over time you realize that the people who are supposed to be in your life will find you. And if you are doing what you love you don’t feel so much like it’s work. Experience has brought me to where I am today and I feel proud of myself for putting in years of work to be better than I was yesterday.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite places in San Diego are sort of off the beaten path. I love spending time at Felicta park with the giant old trees and pathways into the forest. I love taking friends locally owned small businesses like Kettle and Tea in Escondido for coffee, Or, shopping at Love and aesthetics for some unique home decor and jewelry. We’d have to put the safari park on the list especially if any new baby animals have been born. We’d go to The Waley house because you can’t pass up possibly seeing a ghost at the most haunted house in America. And of course the beach! La Jolla and Del Mar have the prettiest beaches in San Diego in my opinion

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
We are in such a competitive business where it’s easy to feel threatened and feel like others are waiting for your downfall . I feel so Lucky to have such wonderful co workers now at Revive. Lisa Riedy, Blaire Smith, Brenda Buenrostro, Kevin McComb and Oleg. We all support each other and I genuinely feel they want to see me do well. I recently re read the book The Success Principles. It’s always good to get back to the basics on what your goals are, and what needs to be done.
