Ali Spittler, one of our two new nail technician apprentices, is our awesome #WCW today! Prior to joining the Beautifully Polished team, Ali worked at a local Poulsbo bakery, and had never been to the salon, or really ever seriously considered a career in the beauty industry. When a salon client, and friend of Ali's, heard about the apprenticeship opportunity offered here, she thought it would be perfect for her. Ali's love for nail art goes way back, and she was constantly trying new things on her own nails. The apprenticeship program offers an on-the-job-training approach that's affordable, and keeps the student in the locale where they'll be working. This felt like just the right fit for Ali, and she definitely jumped in with both feet to her new line of work, and the salon family that came with it. Hailing from the tight knit community of Port Townsend, WA, Ali appreciates the bond that's been forged with her fellow co-workers, and with guests to the salon. She enjoys the safe atmosphere that is fostered, for women, (and even some brave men!), to come in, relax, and be themselves.
When Ali isn't at the salon, she spends a lot of time visiting her friends and family up in Port Townsend, and catching concerts and movies whenever she can. Her favorite new skill as a nail apprentice is currently gel manicures, but we have strong sense that acrylics will be up next, because she has tons of natural talent! If you haven't already, come meet Ali for yourself, and let her show off her awesome techniques! Ali perfectly illustrates why we should always be ready to step through newly opened doors, and into new opportunities, because we never know what could be around that next corner of life. We're so happy to have an addition to our clan that is fun, expressive, and hard-working! Ali brings a great energy to the BP family, and we can't wait to watch her successes grow!
