Check Out Dilgash Mizoory’s Story


Today we’d like to introduce you to Dilgash Mizoory.
 

Hi Dilgash, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start, maybe you can share some of your backstories with our readers?
Ever since I was very little, I have always gravitated toward the arts. That carried over into my teen years and then eventually into college. I took a few classes while in college, mostly art related, without clear thought as to where I wanted my career to go. While still in school, my older sister brought to my attention that there was a beauty school close to our house that she was interested in attending. She at that point, had finished school and wanted to attend beauty school to see if she would like it. She and I signed up together and a few weeks later were both in beauty school. It was there that a fire ignited for me, I started to think of doing hair as more of a long-term career. I really started gravitating towards cutting hair and then eventually coloring as well. After about a year in beauty school, I graduated and immediately took the state board exams to get licensed, and from there jumped into the workforce. I got my first job working at a salon in my hometown, I started out assisting, and it was there that I learned a lot of hands-on experience that one normally can’t get in beauty school. After about a year of assisting, I was ready to start seeing my own clients and before I knew it my schedule started filling up. Although I really liked working in a salon environment and working with coworkers, I was ready for something different. I really wanted to provide my clients with a space a little more exclusive and private. So, I opened up my own “salon” and named it Lili Hair Studio, named after my mom Lili. It’s really more of a relaxed studio where my clients can come and enjoy some quiet downtime while getting their hair done. I have been working in my own suite for 5 months now, and I’m absolutely loving the freedom and independence it has given me. 

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
One of the hardest challenges I’ve faced thus far has been taking that leap and starting my business. It came with challenges that were very foreign to me, including finding a balance between being a business owner while still working full-time behind the chair as a stylist. I’m still learning every day and will continue to learn 5 or even 10 years down the road, I’m sure. 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
At the beginning of my career, I really gravitated toward cutting and focused mostly on improving in that area, but as my career and skills progressed, I realized that color was just as important, if not more so, than delivering a great cut. I love coloring as a whole, but creating layers/face-framing layers on medium to long hair is when I shine and most in my element. I want all of my clients to leave my chair feeling beautiful and confident. 

What do you like and dislike about the city?
Living in Saginaw, it’s not often we hear many positive things being said about our town, but I will say I have some of the most supportive and loving clients which most are from Saginaw and surrounding towns. I wish we could be more supportive and open-minded when it comes to new businesses opening in our area.
