In the lead up to our launch this August, we are excited to showcase our Top HANX Power Women. You really are in for a treat. This week we have caught up with our fave nail superstar, Sharmadean Reid. Sharmadean, former fashion stylist and brand consultant, founded WAH Nails in 2009. Alongside running the most sassy nail salons in London, she has set up FutureGirlCorp, written two books, is rocking virtual reality in her salons and somehow found time to start work on a new salon software system for beauty pros. No wonder Her Royal Highness The Queen awarded her an MBE.
Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do
I’m Sharmadean Reid MBE, founder and CEO of WAH Nails, but I’m also currently working on a beauty booking system for salon owners and beauty professionals. I’m a Gemini and I love beauty, tech, art, girl culture, raving, nature and cars.
What is your idea of ‘taking control’ with regards to your life?
Being able to control my mind and emotions.
When was the last time you took control and did something your way?
I took control of my life last Friday by just deciding to have the day off, mooch around and read. Making decisions like this are so important for practicing self love and self care.
What motivational mantra do you live by?
You have the same number of hours in the day as Beyoncé!
Quite frankly, we think you're nailing it Shar.
