Today we’d like to introduce you to Kelly Quinones.
Kelly, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
For me it all started when I came to a point in my life that working as a dental assistant was not enough to provide for my family. I felt insecure about my job more and younger girls did this position. It was physically demanding especially being in a managing position without the title. I could see it now the older me not being able to compete with the younger assistants. “I’m still in my prime” I thought to myself if I was going to change careers it needed to happen soon. I hit a cross road in my life and I didn’t know where to go. This tension and heaviness was so real and so present. I wanted a chance for a good change. I felt driven and determine without having no planned to run too. I finally surrender all my troubles, doubts, fear, anxiety everything in the presence of God! When I mean I cried out, it was me like a child to a father. I left all the heavy load for God to handle and went on with my life. I had nothing to give, but simply believe in Him that he will redirect my path to where He wants me to be.
Months had passed when I started to see God’s hand at work. Twice at going to my usual hair appointments, On random days I was ask by these lady’s that asked me if I could put a pair of strip lashes on them. I was puzzled because I don’t work their yet they asked me this strange question. My hair stylist notice both of these times it happen and says to me; “I think God is talking to you because that’s not normal for a total stranger to ask you out of the blue to put a strip of lashes on them. You should really think about doing eyelash extensions.” Now I’m stud with all this because I’m remembering what I prayed. So that night a start searching all about the classes of eyelash extensions and decided to take that leap of faith.
Now I ended up renting a small room at the same place where I got my hair done and Our Beauty was created. Working two jobs and being a super mom to my two boys. The struggle was real…within the 3 years I left the dental assistants position and took another leap of faith and relocated getting my own location. And we simply been growing since then.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Everything was a struggle but one thing I will say is that when you are uncomfortable with your life you will move to make those changes happen in your life then being comfortable, which keeps you in the same routine because there’s no obstacles to challenge your lively hood.

Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
As a child I was always very imaginative and creative. From trying to design a dress from scratch for my younger sister. That was a big bust! But I worked at it all day long trying to make it happen. I still remember it looked very Roman style. With all the sowing parts showing everywhere. It was hilarious but to me it was the best dress. My sister worded the dress at least around the house and of course after I made her feel bad of working so hard to make it look beautiful for her. (LOL) That was fun for me.
