Check Out Yuri Althy’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Yuri Althy.

Hi Yuri, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My name is Yuri Marie I’m a Licensed Cosmetologist currently based in Orlando, Florida. I am a graduated from Paul Mitchell the school Orlando. I have been doing hair since the tender age of 12 and discovered my passion for bridal artistry during cosmetology school. I now specialize in bridal hair and makeup services to offer my bridal parties a luxurious experience! I’d like to say I’m 28 years wise, but I come from very humble beginnings.

I do believe my story is still being written as I discovered my purpose behind my passion for hair. I kinda went against the grain to pursue my passion. I’m haitian and if you’re familiar with the Haitian culture it’s either you’re in healthcare, educator or lawyer. Anything else was a scratch in the head. Lol After years of battling with pleasing others, I decided to just go for Cosmetology school and I have not looked back. I’ve put all of my energy towards expanding my skills since! For some people it may be a hobby but honestly a true artist understand the full fulfillment that comes with making someone feel beautiful about themselves. No to mention not only do I get to meet amazing individuals on a daily basis like Stacy Francis (American Singer) but I get to connect and work with even more amazing artist in my field that is willing to pave the way whom can also learn from.

Just to name a few, I’m very humbled to have worked with Jo Michelle, Respectable Orlando makeup artist, Dee Carington; well known featured hairstylist from GA, Shaka Khan Ones of Orlando’s best loctician, and many more. As I continue to grow within this rewarding industry I’m hoping to leave my legacy behind and to touch not only in the physically form but to impact the world with the many Gifts that God has blessed me with. I aspire to educate and share my story as dive into health and wellness as my second career of choice. I’ve come to understand that our passions always has a way of aligning itself with our purpose. In closing, there are two quote that replays daily in my mind to keep me going… “where there is no vision, the people shall perish” (proverbs 29:18) “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough” -unknown Blessings -The Evolution Of Yuri Marie…

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
No, it hasn’t all been smooth and I don’t think it will get smooth until I’ve reach my final destination. Acceptance from others was a big deal to me… then figured that really didn’t matter I did have a baby in the midst of trying to find myself but I turned that situation around and my son is now my # 1 reason why I go so hard.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I specialize in bride Artistry hair and makeup. I’m known for my signature creative bridal styles. What sets me aside from others I speak three languages fluently Spanish Creole English Making it very easy to target a wider audience without having a language barrier.

Risk taking is a topic that people have widely differing views on – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
I have been a risk taker all my career! I went on a limb to quitting my 9-5 jobs multiple occasions. Although sometimes it didn’t work out I learn from those mistakes and understood that having a plan of action is needed. I base my perseverance in believing that God is ahead of me and what’s for me will be for me.
