Conversations with the Inspiring Jordan Medel

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jordan Medel.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Jordan . So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I am a licensed Cosmetologist and certified Lash Artist. I graduated from Bellus Academy Poway and have been in the beauty industry for the past three years. I also have experience in Hairstyling and Makeup Artistry. After a year of being licensed and working in the beauty industry, I now specialize in my true passion which is eye lash extensions.

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?
Making the decision to go to cosmetology school was pretty big for me. Thankfully, my family has always supported me no matter what. Not many people realize how complex it is to be a cosmetologist. You learn several different umbrellas of the beauty industry; hair, skin, and nails. That doesn’t even include all of the other training you can do, like makeup or eyelash extensions. You learn all of that for a whole year and then, once you get your license, you’re suppose to go out in the world and apply everything you learned to your day to day life. I thought I was going to be a hairstylist, but after trying that out, I decided it wasn’t for me. Luckily, I also learned those other umbrellas of cosmetology. I then, started to peruse makeup and shortly after that, I found eyelash extensions. I was thankful to have learned all these different aspects of beauty and am so happy to share it with the world.

Starting out was tough, I always had to remind myself to never give up and to always keep trying. You really have to work hard at anything you do and just know that in time, your hard work will pay off.

what should we know about Jordan Lashes? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
I am a San Diego based lash artist and specialize in eyelash extensions. I work an incredible lash bar called, Bumble Lash Bar, in Golden Hill. I truly pride myself on making other people feel beautiful and good about themselves. Every day I go to work I can’t wait to see the smiles on my client’s faces when I hand them the mirror.

Do you have any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general? What has worked well for you?
I have been lucky enough to have a great mentor throughout my journey. I would definitely suggest networking through social media and don’t be afraid to reach out to people and ask advice, that’s how I met my mentor. Find someone who wants the best for you and is willing to do whatever they can to help your success.
