Finding someone you can trust to rejuvenate your hair let alone cut or style it to your preference is a difficult task.

Rest your worries there is such a place in the centre of Suva.

Different hair constrains which too often tend to dampen an individual’s look and spirits is something Merewalesi Tarokoni has mastered to resolve on a daily basis.

The plumy yet elegant native from Yaroi, Matuku in Lau determined to tap into her passion for hair and beauty has successfully gained ten years of experience in the hair and beauty profession.

“I underwent studies in business and management but opted to stop and pursue my interests with hairstyling and beauty therapy,” she shyly shared.

The 35 year old has never looked back ever since and is reaping the rewards of that decision.

“When I started hair-dressing in 2008, I tried my best to learn the different ways I can improve the talent I knew I had.

“Now I have regular clients from different walks of life who regularly trust me to meet their expectations for the different hair styles they want,” she said.

Trying to change the common mind-set of people about hairstyling and beauty therapy as a last resort for employment, Mrs Tarokoni said that the profession has been her source of income financing her family’s needs.

“Civil servants earn income every fortnight but I earn on a daily basis which helps me support my husband with our family’s daily necessities,”

With her business and management qualifications, she now manages Reazz Hair Salon located at Cumming Street in Suva.

“It is not easy work but if you are passionate and committed to satisfy clients and improve on every hairstyle you do, then you will be able to have confidence in your work,” she said.

Mrs Tarokoni’s  advice to youths who are passionate about hairstyling and beauty therapy is to take the leap of faith and explore their interests.

“From the time I started until now, I have seen a huge growth in terms of products and equipment for this profession,” she said.

“I encourage those who want to engage in their interests for this similar work to go for it and trust in themselves.”

The talented hairdresser hopes that in the near future, more initiatives like unions are formed to continue the growth of small businesses in the hair and beauty therapy industry.
