What does a typical day at Luxy look like for you?
I start off my morning by checking to see if any inventory items need to have any backorder tags placed. I will check to see when orders are being shipped and then I will update the Shopify site. After, I normally check on our backorder reports and communicate with the Customer Service team for any updates.
Once that is all done, I get to work on personal projects throughout the rest of the day, which allows me to learn something new everyday and allows me to have flexibility within my own work schedule!
Describe your WFH outfit
Anything comfortable for sure! Leggings or sweatpants paired with a baggy t-shirt is what I mostly wear when I’m at home.
Why did you decide to pursue a career in this field?
I have always enjoyed the analytical and problem-solving aspect of doing an undergrad in Biology, but knew that it was missing a collaborative component to it. That is when I decided to go into Business, where I knew that I could apply my analytical skills to a field that was more people-oriented. I also used to watch Luxy Hair videos on Youtube growing up, so seeing that I could apply my passion for business to a company that I've looked up to in my life was really special!

Sazan Hendrix! She always has the best hairstyles that match perfectly with her makeup and outfits!
