FOILMETEAM: 👩🏼💼👨🏻💻👩🏻👩🏼(sorry Monique, this is the closest I could get to your emoticon as Apple are clearly prejudice with these emoticons)!!
This week, we thought it was about time for you to all get to know the Foil Me team a little better; so first up is me, Emily Ciardiello, creative director & co-founder of Foil Me.
Believe it or not, I used to be a high school teacher! 👩🏼🏫 With a passion for helping others, I loved working with children; watching them learn and grow and now I am lucky enough to have two young, beautiful boys of my own - if I'm not working, I am spending time with my little family and catching up with my friends (some of whom I've been friends with for 21 years)!! 💗 Now I feel old!! 😩
Foil Me was created in 2014 when my husband & co-founder of the business, Iliano, saw me getting my hair foiled and I frequently witnessed my gorgeous best friend & hairdresser, Amy, 💇🏼 cutting up foil, but more of that to come when you meet Ili! 🔜
I am proud to say that I did a lot of the ground work to get Foil Me on its feet - I visited multiple local salons here in Adelaide 🏘offering our foils & revisiting them to get feedback & learn what was not so loved & loved about them so we could improve them to better suit your needs (& we continue to do so). We didn't know what other brands were out there when we started - we just created a foil based on the feedback we received.🤷🏼♀️ I've had to work super hard to not only get our name & brand out there, but to also learn about the amazing profession that is hairdressing! 💗 I've developed such wonderful relationships & discovered that you guys really do have one of the most rewarding, but hardest jobs out there!! 💯 Where we are now is such a humbling & rewarding feeling & I couldn't be more thankful for our Foil Me lovers support!!
One thing you may not know about me is I practice transcendental meditation! I have been for close to 3 years & it's something that has helped me listen to my intuition, & trust myself & my team - Foil Me wouldn't be where it is today if myself & the Foil Me team didn't stand by each other. Thank you if you're u've read this far! Much love and respect, Emily xx
