Do you enjoy make-up, but need a little guidance on how to SLAY your look? Are you into fashion and looking good?! Well we interviewed a true Glam God who can lead you in the right direction!
Representing Chicago, IL, Iesha King is a Nurse, Cosmetologist, and Beauty Blogger (BOSS STATUS!) Iesha tells us that she is driven by her family and the motivate her in every way!
“Whenever I’m doubting myself or feeling low they are right there to tell me how great I am. My passion to succeed for them is what drives me day to day.”
“The most difficult part about blogging for me is finding the time. Being a wife and mother of 3 who also works as a nurse full time, you can imagine I don’t have much free time lol. But when you love what you do, you find the time. I wouldn’t change a thing.”
So what got Iesha into video blogging? Iesha tells us that she loves to make people feel good about themselves, whether its nursing or beauty. She’s always had an interest in beauty and fashion, and began doing hair when she was just 9 years old.
“People always asked me my opinion on different beauty ideas all the time. My interest really sparked for blogging when I started Beauty school in 2011. Beauty school gave me so much confidence, I felt like I could conquer the world. I finally got the courage to start my channel a few years ago and I have no regrets. Best decision ever!”
For Iesha, the feeling of being able to help someone feel more confident about their looks, is what she loves most! She loves to show her viewers that you don’t need a lot of money to look and feel beautiful. With most of her requests being for hair and clothing haul videos, Iesha’s vlog channel focuses on many topics such as beauty, fitness, clothing hauls, vlogs, and more! Her channel is all about not only looking good but feeling good too! Iesha normally records her vlogs over the weekends, with her goal to upload videos every week! Iesha tells us that one her channel begins to grow more, she plans to go full-time with her vlog! (NIICCEEE!)
“I choose my content on what I feel my viewers would like to see. In almost every video I ask my viewer to let me know what they would like to see from me. I also answer any questions they have for me.”
Iesha got her first big breaker as a vlogger when she hit over 10,000 views on one video and says that it definitely motivated her to do more. To date, Iesha has made over 30 videos and has over 200 subscribers! (YOU GO GIRL!)
“I can definitely see my channel growing this year. I have so many great things coming this year, that I want to share; that’s my main focus this year! Being a small blogger, it’s hard to get people to watch your videos. My main obstacle then and now, is getting people to subscribe. I have over 20,000 views on my videos, so I know people are watching. I want to help as many people as I can.”
Vlogging isn’t the only thing Iesha does, as she offers services of wig making! Due to her getting so many questions on her wigs, Iesha started her very own wig business this year, called GLAM Wigs by Iesha. Her custom wig line is growing day by day, and she is now taking all wig orders! Make sure you keep up with Iesha as she will be attending the BE You Natural Hair Fest, on April 14th, 2018 in Chicago IL. Make sure you visit her Facebook business page for updates and more! Iesha tells us that she has many new videos, coming very soon for her channel.
If you’re interested in becoming a video blogger, Iesha has the following advice,
“My advice to anyone wanting to become a beauty blogger would have to be to stay consistent, the more you put in the more you get out. The sky is the limit when you put in the work. And don’t forget to have fun! Some people may believe that it is easy to vlog. I can be the first to tell you that it’s not! To make good quality videos, there’s a lot that goes into it. You have to have the right lighting, right camera, right set up, etc. Then there’s the editing which could take a while. Patience is definitely key! You have to really love what you’re doing to make your channel successful.”
