Today we’d like to introduce you to Demi Schulz.
Hi Demi, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I was born in Moldova, a small Eastern European country with kind people and amazing wineries. I have a bachelor’s in Marketing. I speak six languages. I moved to America a year ago. I chose this path because that’s all I know to do the best and I like to get lost in the service of others. I started my nail journey eight years ago and it became a real job in recent years. I am a perfectionist and a big critic.
The nail industry is underestimated in Kansas. The quality standards are low and most nail places are outdated and unsafe. This is a rapidly growing industry with huge potential; We can’t afford to use the old methods. That’s what I want to change. I want everyone in Kansas to feel safe when getting manicure/pedicure service. I want people to have a different experience than a traditional salon! I want to be the bridge between Europe and Kansas regarding trends and techniques. I have big plans for the community and I hope to bring a positive change to the industry.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
In my student years, I had to make enough money to live a decent life. I didn’t want to ask my parents. I always feel uncomfortable asking for money from others. I always worked two jobs. Weekend night shifts at the warehouse, school during the day, and nails in the afternoon. I think that was a real challenge but it was something I wanted to do. I had a goal in front of me and I knew this is the right thing to do. It helped me build discipline and save money.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I do gel nails with detailed cuticle work, also known as dry manicures. I am known for very detailed clean, qualitative work and intricate designs. Thanks to the technique I use, the manicure lasts 3-4 weeks and improves the health of the nails.
I am proud of every manicure I do. Every work is a part of me. I have a unique style because I use a European approach that is not well adopted in the United States. For example, I think I am the only one to use this method here in Kansas City.
