Tracey Hardaway

Hi, I am Tracey Hardaway, creator of From Beauty School to Boss © – –  an online course that provides next steps education, information, and inspiration to help you create an independent beauty business with confidence.    

About Tracey

Since 2001

I am Tracey Hardaway (wife, mother, author, coarse creator, new dog lover (Lee) and next steps coach to aspiring beauty professionals).  Since I still love helping women dealing with hair loss, I create bespoke hair enhancements (wigs, weaves, & toppers) too.

Getting my cosmetology license was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. If someone had said to me back then that one day I would take all of my lessons learned, research, successes, and failures and become a coach for aspiring beauty professionals, I would have laughed and called them crazy. Here I am, many years later, helping others–like you–pursue a bigger dream. With my from BEAUTY SCHOOL to BOSS © program – I provide concepts, principles, tools, and resources to help beauty professionals start independent businesses with confidence and how to position themselves to be a magnet for their ideal customers.  

I want to show you how to not waste time by starting your beauty career as a junior stylist/assistant – you have already earned 1500 hours of the experience needed to be your own boss.

Working as a junior stylist, assistant, for commission, or as an employee can be a trap that often causes burnout, discouragement, disappointment and worse – quitting the industry. 

Beauty School provides the foundation.  From Beauty School to Boss © provides next step education, information, and inspiration to help you create an independent beauty business with confidence straight out of beauty school.

BS2B is an amazing ebook! I learned so much from Tracey’s story! I can’t wait to follow in her steps!

Very informative read!! I learned a lot about Tracey from a personal aspect and a from business aspect. Although I am not in the beauty business, the business pointers Tracey gave I can use in my career to improve my brand. I highly recommend!

Beauty School to Boss is very well written and to the point. It is relatable and inspiring beyond the hair/beauty industry

Hair Stylist. It's a joy to walk into her salon because I know that when I walk out, the results will be beautiful. She is the creme de la creme of stylists.
