Amelia Haskins - Hairstylist

Hairstylist specializing in blondes, balayage, creative color and braids!

Operating as usual

Choosing the name of my business was really f**king hard.
I went through so many names and did so much research before I finally ultimately decided on @rebelfolkhairco.
However, in my research I found something scary. While the vast majority of the people using the “rebel folk” were fellow creatives like me who wanted to stray from the conventional norms, there were a few who used the term to spread hate. They use the term to describe those who still believe in the Confederacy. What they promote is disgusting, unacceptable and racist.
I sat with this information for a long time and weighed whether minority was enough to keep me from naming my business what I wanted.
Ultimately I decided that I wasn’t going to let that hateful group of people dictate my actions. I decided I wanted to take back the word rebel and use it for good instead of evil.
I believe it has been corrupted by a group of hateful individuals who mask their hate as “rebellion.” These are not rebels. They are not standing up against an authoritarian government. In fact, these “rebels” are standing behind a fascist dictator and supporting an authoritarian government. They do not get to take ownership of that word any longer.
To me, rebels have always been those who stand up for equality and justice. Who fight against evil. They’re willing to be uncomfortable and stand up for the greater good. That’s who rebels are. That’s who rebel folk are to me. People who aren’t afraid to stand up against those who say “well that’s how we’ve always done it.”

I’m proud to be the owner of @rebelfolkhairco. Anyone who uses the term “rebel” to promote prejudice and cruelty, is not welcome in my place of business. That space is reserved for those who truly fight against evil fascist regimes, not for those who hide behind a lie to conceal their hate. @ Rebel Folk Hair Co.

ATX - I am in town and taking appointments. If you reached out to me and haven’t heard back from me yet, please reach out again! ⠀

I’m a total weirdo and that’s a good thing.⠀
.⠀
Last week my friend @tinadesetahair and I talked about how we wish people would just own their weirdness more. How we wish everyone would stop trying to fit in and just let their weird flag fly.⠀
.⠀
I’ve always know that I was a weirdo. That I wasn’t like everyone else. I never felt like I truly “fit in” anywhere, or with any group of people. I still feel that way. At church, I’m the loud mouth who swears like a sailor and has crazy hair and doesn’t know how to sugar coat the truth. Around my friends, I’m the goody two shoes who doesn’t drink or smoke and goes to bed early and just wants to hang out with my dog. So why would the hair world be any different? ⠀
.⠀
Over these past few months I’ve realized that I’m really not like a lot of stylists. My story is different than theirs. My path is different. My skills are different. My weakness are different. The most important part? None of that means I don’t deserve to be here!!! ⠀
.⠀
I’m a weirdo. I look different. I act different. I approach my career differently. I approach my life differently. My journey is a lot different than most people. That’s okay!! I know what is best for me and no matter what anyone says to me or about me, I know who I am. I’m a weirdo and I own that sh*t. I let my weird flag fly every damn day.⠀
.⠀
Plus ya wanna know the best part about being a weirdo? You find the other weirdos! All my closest, dearest friends in hair or just in life are all weirdos who took their own path. The ones who rejected the cookie cutter outline of life and made their own trail. Those are my humans. The trailblazers. I’m proud to be a weirdo. ⠀
.⠀
Your comments about how different I am and how I’m never going to make it in this industry because I don’t fit the mold don’t phase me anymore. My clients love me and feel safe with me because of who I am. I am genuine, I am honest, I love with my whole heart and I care too much. That’s what makes me great. That’s why I’m going to be successful. That’s why I’m happy, because I don’t let other people’s bullsh*t define who I am. I’m me. I’m a weirdo, and I love who I am.

Remember when spring was just starting and we were all so stoked? It was starting to warm up, things were beginning to bloom and everything was wonderful! ⠀
.⠀
Now our eyes can’t stop watering because of allergies and the weather can’t make up its dang mind on if it’s beautiful or terrible so we don’t know how to dress and everything is awful. ⠀
.⠀
Here’s a little reminder of when spring was new and still made us all happy. ✨🌿✨⠀

Sitting in a hotel room in Vegas trying to recover from this weekend and feeling grateful AF.⠀
.⠀
I’m grateful to all of the amazing educators who flew from all over the country to share their knowledge and make us better stylists. I’m grateful to my friend @beyond_vivids for seriously being the biggest support to me over this past month and constantly making me feel like I belong. I’m grateful to all my new friends for exploring the mountains with me. I’m grateful for a house full of wonderful humans who were all SO SWEET to my baby Gretch. I was so worried y’all were going to be annoyed with her but now she has a whole group of new best friends and is EXHAUSTED. I’m grateful that I have a family in this industry that believes in me, supports me and accepts me for who I am, even when I’m different than them. ⠀
.⠀
In a world and an industry that constantly tells us that we’re not enough, I have a whole network of people to help me remember my worth. I’m so f**king grateful. Thank you @pulpriothair , @alexisbutterflyloft , @davidbutterflyloft for putting together this community that means so much to me. 💕⠀
.⠀
I LOVE Y’ALL.⠀

To all the misfits, outcasts, weirdos and loners, I salute you. 🤘⠀
.⠀
In an industry full of people trying to tell us how to dress, how to act, what to say, what to eat, how to live and what to be, I’m here to celebrate those who said “F**k that.” This industry is so far from one size fits all, and that’s the BEST. PART. ⠀
.⠀
No matter what you want to specialize in: there’s a place for you. No matter what your style: there’s a place for you. No matter what you look like: there’s a place for you. ⠀
.⠀
Let’s celebrate each other’s differences. Let’s embrace our diversity. Let’s stop giving a flying f**k about fitting in. Let’s stop with the fake bullsh*t and just be who we want to be. ⠀
.⠀
For every stylist who feels like a weirdo, there are a 1000 clients who feel the same. You will find your people. All you have to do is be 100% yourself and put yourself out there for people to find you. If you build it, they will come. ⠀
.⠀
We got this. 🙌⠀

SLC/PROVO FAM! ✨⠀

My favorite part about this rainbow? The green. Here’s why.👇⠀
.⠀
This lovely gal trusts me to do whatever I want on hair with one condition: NO GREEN. No neon green. No emerald green. No greens. None of ‘em. Get ‘em out of here. ⠀
.⠀
However, we all know when we’re doing rainbows we need a transition color between our yellows & blues or they’ll make their own green whether we like it or not. So, I had to get creative. ⠀
.⠀
Between my yellow (equal parts Lemon and Firefly) and my blue (Nirvana with a couple lines of Aquatic) I did a smaller line of my transition color which was Seaglass with Lilac. She was already an icy level 10 underneath but I wanted to be extra careful that the Seaglass didn’t turn into an unwanted green hue on her hair. Here’s the result! 🙌⠀
.⠀
What I love about Pulp Riot is that they encourage mixing your perfect shade, not just for unique colors but also to factor in underlying pigment! I’ve tried just about every direct dye under the sun and no other line has consistent, quality color that delivers the promised results every time!!! Moral of the story: @pulpriothair forever and ever and ever and ever. Also, just because your client objects to a certain color, doesn’t mean you can’t get creative to get those dreamy rainbows. ✨⠀
.⠀
Check out #pulpriotrecipes for a ton of gorgeous unique shades by Pulp Riot artists! ⠀

Hey fam. Thank you all so much for your kind words on my last post. Y’all don’t even know how much it means to me. Thank you for all your love and kindness. 🖤⠀

It is really hard for me to write this, but in an effort to honest with y’all I’m just going to rip the band aid off and do it. I’m no longer at Vain. We were not the right fit for each other and we decided to part ways. They are an incredible salon full of inspiring stylists and there is no bad blood between us. ⠀
.⠀
My only regret is the inconvenience to my clients. I deeply apologize for the rapid change. I don’t yet know exactly where my next home will be but in the meantime I ask for patience. I assure you that finding a place where you feel safe, relaxed and treated like the wonderful humans you are is my top priority. I’m going offline for a few days to gather my thoughts and make decisions on my next steps. ⠀
.⠀
Thank you in advance for your patience, understanding and kindness. 🖤

From flash flood warnings to 90 and sunny in 12 hours: spring in Texas. ☀️⠀
.⠀
Hope you’re all enjoying our break from the rain today. ♥️⠀

This contest has really been one of my favorites! I have seen so much beautiful work and discovered so many talented artists just from this hashtag!! ⠀
.⠀
Thank you @pulpriothair for continuing to inspire us and push us to do more! ☀️⠀
.⠀
The Pulp Riot artist community is so supportive, kind, talented and I’m so grateful to be a part of it. I’m constantly in awe of how involved the company is curating this positive community and truly listening to artists. I can go on forever about how much I love Pulp Riot and everything that makes them different but for now I just want to say THANK YOU. ⠀

Hi friends, I hope you’re all riding out these storms safely. ♥️⠀
.⠀
I think we passed the worst of it here in Austin yesterday. Looks like it should clear up this afternoon. I lost power for a little bit yesterday but we got it back. How are y’all doing in this lovely Texas spring weather? ⠀
