Advice & Insight from Moms We Love

The ideal client-stylist relationship is nurturing, built on care and respect, and filled with compassion and shared understanding…a lot like another relationship that’s on our minds as Mother’s Day approaches. Many of our wonderful clients are balancing work and home responsibilities while raising children, and our stylists know how much a quiet hour at the salon means for your peace of mind. In fact, nobody understands better than our stylists who are also moms. Today, we’ll introduce you to four of them working in Boeau Belle salons from Slidell to San Antonio—and share their tips, insights and hard-won knowledge about motherhood.

 


 

Brandi M

Brandi M is Salon Director of Boeau Belle in Slidell at the Fremaux Town Center location.

What’s your favorite thing about being a mom?
Knowing I had a part in creating these two amazing humans who I now get to watch learn, develop, and grow into men.  

How has being a mom grown you as a person?
About three dress sizes… 

What’s your funniest mom moment?
When asked why he insists on eating while going to the bathroom, my then 9-year-old told me it was because of “pure efficiency.”

What’s your guilty mom pleasure?
Sleeping, but I don’t really feel that guilty honestly. So, my oh-so-guilty mom pleasure is having an evening out with my wonderful husband without our boys in tow.  

What advice do you have for the next generation of moms?
Be kind to yourself! You can’t be Supermom all the time and not crash. Let the dishes go if it means you get a nap. Don’t vacuum if it means your little one sleeps 15 minutes longer. And, above all, take time for yourself, too. This is critical for your mental health and well-being, which is necessary for the care of your children.

What’s your favorite thing about being a mom?
Seeing my son grow and develop into a bright, intelligent happy child. 

How has being a mom grown you as a person?
It has made me grow and realize that my world no longer belongs to me—it revolves around my child's every need.

Taking a shower and having an audience. I just saw two little hands on the shower door.

Binge-watching Real Housewives while my son naps.

Relax and enjoy the messiness of it all. :-D

 


 

Mary

Mary is an Esthetician at Boeau Belle in Valley Vista Mall in Harlingen, Texas.

What’s your favorite thing about being a mom?
Seeing how there is a little bit of me in my children and watching them grow.

How has being a mom grown you as a person?
I’m responsible for their well-being. You have to set an example, and you want them to grow up to be good individuals.

What’s your funniest mom moment?
We do puppets shows and have a good time. They enjoy it!

What’s your guilty mom pleasure?
Enjoying a glass of wine and watching cartoons with my kids.

What advice do you have for the next generation of moms?
Enjoy them while they're still small, because they grow up too fast.

 


 

Lacey C

Lacy C is a Stylist at Boeau Belle at North Star Mall in San Antonio, Texas.

What's your favorite thing about being a mom?
Seeing my son grow. He’s always amazing me with the things he says and does. 

How has being a mom grown you as a person?
Many ways. The biggest is that I no longer make decisions for myself. All my decisions have been for the best interests of my son. He is the important one now, and I can't be selfish anymore. 

What is your funniest mom moment?
When my son was about three months old, we were on a 12-hour road trip and my son started crying hysterically. We pulled over, I got him out of his and he proceeded to potty ALL over me. It went up his little back, down his legs, all over my lap, and up my arms. Keep in mind we were only about three hours into this trip. I had to baby-wipe bathe both of us, change our clothes, and drive the remainder of the trip with the residual smell lingering. Mom life at its finest.  

What's your guilty mom pleasure?
Going to the bathroom alone. You never understand just how much of a luxury that is until you have a child. If I get a restroom break without him with me, yelling from the other side of the door or sticking his fingers and toes under the door, it's a good day. 

What advice do you have for the next generation of moms?
Don’t take anything too seriously. You're going to make mistakes, babies are going to cry, you're probably going to get dirty, and if you sweat all the small stuff, you’ll never fully enjoy the time with your child. The less I stress with my little, the more fun we have together. 

 


 

For our clients who also are moms—we appreciate everything you do and welcome the opportunity to help you decompress. We hope you’ll treat yourself (or a mom in your life) to some quality “you time” at Boeau Belle Salon soon.
