Hey ladies! I have recently decided to move BACK to Southern California but I am only familiar with the San Diego area. Ideally I would like to be in the Los Angeles area. While I have traveled there plenty and can get around relatively well I would love some advice! I'm a hairstylist and would obviously start fresh and I am already losing my nerve to make the jump as I've had people tell me I won't be able to afford it and will struggle.

Is anyone else a stylist out there, making it on their own? I'd love to get into a commission based salon full time but if not immediately possible I'd be open to working at a blow dry bar like I already do and then maybe assisting or something else part time. I just need to be able to make the rent and not be stressing like I do already. 

What am I looking at as far as renting a decent studio or 1 bedroom apartment by myself while working full time as as stylist? Is that going to be impossible starting out? Will I have no other choice but to go towards a roommate situation? Any and all advice you have would be lovely.

Kammi, I really have no idea about how easy it is to land a job in So Cal in your profession. But I must tell you that this group has gone pretty quiet. So you should also post this to the General Discussion forum. You may get more answers that way.

Perfect. Thanks!

Well, some of your details are vague. LA is a huge city and area. Where are you looking to live and work (do you have an area in mind)? This detail is a big factor for jobs as we'll, as some areas wi be easier than others. Do you have a budget in mind?
