We had the good fortune of connecting with Vladeen Hargis and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Vladeen, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
The thought process behind starting my business was a submission to a lifetime desire of going after my passion. I was born and raised in New Jersey and started styling hair since kindergarten. I became the friends and family hairstylist and it seemed to have followed me all of my life. Despite my instincts, I followed the safe and traditional route of getting educated, working a job, move up and still there was something missing. I wanted to help others while also feeding my own appetite to style across the board. Starting my business was the final attempt for facing my fears on my terms. As a result, I made the decision not to live in regret and truly explore my passion; and this is how Style’N Out was born. I have always had a connection to hair, fashion and things permitting creative expression. I chose to stick with what does not feel like work and also helping others. Today’s economy forces businesses to offer convenience in addition to filling a need for the consumers. It is my belief being a mobile stylist grants flexibility in addition to removing obstacles that may stand in one’s way for beauty services. Being a mobile stylist reduced financial risk while still granting anyone who needs a stylist an opportunity to look there best. Overall, there is an exchange of a filled heart after completing a requested style. The honor of knowing I played a role in making another feel amazing; gives me great satisfaction. These feeling come with a sureness and confirm my business Style’N Out was the missing peace.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Our art as a whole is the full makeover experience. Styling hair and fashion is our primary product and additional services are rendered upon request. What separates Style’N Out is that we truly care about our people and the health of one’s hair is our top priority. We will not perform anything or offer any services that will not compliment one’s natural beauty. Our services are guaranteed to give the look desired while still ensuring the styles compliments each individual look. Our services entail a thorough consultation accompanied by professional recommendations for a flawless final look. What separates us it not only our luxury services; but also, that we come to you! We are excited to grow and touch the members of the Arizona state community as our Journy has not been easy. We are small and relatively new to the area and meeting people is not always easy; However, we have already received such an amazing response from those we have had the opportunity to style. Thus far simply networking and promoting has helped us and we hope the support continues. We have learned to stay humble, appreciate all things, learn, and continue building while walking through the journey. We have been reminded nothing is impossible and with faith; greatness will be achieved. Essentially, we want the world to know Style’N Out is here and when it comes to hairstyling and fashion we can help, and you won’t regret it.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I am still new to the area and still learning a great deal myself. With what I have discovered thus far I would suggest a spa day at Spa Avania and simply discovering more of Scottsdale. The second place I would recommend is dinner at Reserve.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?

I would like to dedicate my shout out to my immediate family. This would include my son, husband, sisters, mom, and dad. The culmination of each of individually has afforded me perspective, strength, support, and courage to get up and do my best. My son was the last but strongest peace of the puzzle. He is who truly gave me the final push as I wanted to be the role model that teaches him; anything we want is possible; If we are willing to do the work for it.
