Ice Cream Sandwich + Popsicle Stick + Red/Blue Sprinkles = OtherStucker FUN!
MotherStucker’s ”Most Admired Momma” is the one and only Deata Sexton Gregory! As a stylist, make-up artist, consultant, pageant/beauty coach, Deata’s home base is Salon Bleu https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Salon-Bleu/237636883029742! Her professional industry experience spans 25+ years giving her access to the most current trends, best beauty products and owner/operator inside information. The icing on Deata’s cake are her 3 daughters who light up her life and aid in up-to-date beauty insight! I caught Deata fresh from a beauty conference in St. Louis and packing for her next adventure to the Mrs. America 2013 Pageant as Mrs. Kentucky’s personal consultant.
MotherStucker: I heard (great things!) about Deata before I actually met Deata. My first opportunity to introduce myself was a local pageant preliminary. Deata travels with an entourage (daughters, personal friends, etc. as she is adored!) and I was immediately impressed! As the owner of Salon Bleu (https://twitter.com/TheSalonBleu), Deata always looks effortlessly beautiful. Deata, how would you describe your “Mom” personal fashion style?
Deata: It’s funny how things change! There was a time when I wouldn’t leave the house in anything but a short skirt complete with 4 inch heels. The first 29 years of my career I operated under a “anti-denim” policy. When I opened Salon Bleu I knew it was time for a fresh approach. We all evolve and change is good. Nowadays I wear a lot of Ralph Lauren, boots and bling!
MotherStucker: Whatever you’re wearing it is working! Being a Mom is also a lot of work and Deata does it flawlessly. Who do you look to for your Mom inspiration?
Deata: My own Mom is the ideal Mother. I am mystified by my Mom…What she did….How she did it. It is all her….. She taught me to be positive and believe in my girls. Encourage your children to be the very best at what they wish to do. Help them make those dreams a reality with everything you’ve got.
MotherStucker: I am mystified by you. What your Mom has started lives on in everthing Deata does. You do so much – any scheduled downtime coming soon?
Deata: The Big Redneck Vacay will be the highlight on my summer! It’s not where we are going, but all the families we are going with! Having trouble picturing it? Think “Duck Dynasty Goes Coastal”.
MotherStucker: Duck Dynasty’s Jase is devine, although he could use a make-over for sure. As owner of Salon Bleu I see you work miracles to bring out true beauty. Sometimes that seems equal parts glamour + therapy. Correct?
Deata: Yes! People feel more comfortable talking to their stylist because they have already invited me inside their ”bubble”. You let me infiltrate the barriers you have up guarding you from the rest of the world. My job is to put my skills to work inside that bubble. You’ve already asked me to help you and you’re already open to my advice before we even get started. As I form relationships with my clients I see them more often, hear about their experiences and form lasting connections. These bonds allow us both to show YOU at your true best.
