Doing What I Love Is the Best Career I Can Have
Lisa has been exploring in the field of makeup and beauty since she was in university, but she never thought that it would be her lifelong career. After graduation, Lisa began her career in PR and Marketing.
Things changed when she looked for a new job. She joined a professional makeup class for her interest and she loved it. She then considered being a full-time makeup artist. Two years after that, Lisa continued to learn about makeup and hair styling. Three years ago, she even set up her own makeup studio Himawari Makeup Workshop and became a bridal makeup artist. She has been doing her favourite thing since then. Lisa has served over 200 newly-weds, and left them with the fondest memory of the very special day!
Why Did You Choose HelloToby in the First Place?
Thanks to my background in marketing, I know how to promote my company and contact potential customers through different channels. In 2017, I learned about HelloToby through my friends and found the app easy to use, so I decided to use HelloToby to expand my customer base. After completing my Pro profile, I found my first customer very soon. Since then I've had a high rate of successful hiring, therefore I am still using the platform today.
How Does HelloToby Help You with Your Business?
HelloToby has given me chances to contact my potential customers directly, which is more useful and efficient than social media ads. From March 2017 to June 2018, I successfully received 60 orders through HelloToby. 30% of my current customers come from HelloToby. HelloToby is a constant and stable source of customers to Himawari Makeup Workshop.
On the other hand, I have found business partners from different business fields through HelloToby. Not only do we provide bridal makeup and hair styling service, but my team and I also provide pre-wedding photography, wedding photography, and also banquet makeup and hair styling service.
What is The Secret to Your Success Achieved in HelloToby? What Advice Would You Give to New Experts?
Firstly, completing Pro profile is very important. A lot of customers have said that they get to know more about me, my work experience, makeup style and skills through my profile. Secondly, customers' ratings are important as well. Good ratings and frequent sharing greatly increase your chance of getting hired.
I believe that every makeup artist shares the same dream. We hope to set up our own studio eventually, after we have enough experience. So if you want to start your own career, start promoting yourself using HelloToby and build your own customer groups.
How Do You Stand Out from the Crowd and Became A Top Pro?
I would describe my service as serious, detailed, and cost-effective. Makeup is a very personalised service, therefore customers' preferences are mostly subjective. But anyhow, customers can tell if you have good makeup skills and attentive service. I think this is why I stood out from the crowd.

What Are the Frequently Asked Questions?
Most questions are about quotations and other services and fees. Others asked for sample pictures, how the wedding process is like, suggestions on makeup duration, and my past experience.
Quick suggestion for the makeup day: On the previous day, suggest your client to wash their hair with shampoo only. That will make the hairstyle last longer. Also, they can exfoliate and moisturise more, making the makeup stay longer.
