How Nailit started
During the first lockdown in this pandemic, like many others, I attempted to give my husband a haircut. I watched youtube videos and got myself some tools. The haircut was a disaster. I gave him two banana-shaped holes around his ears by attempting a fade. He had to turn his camera off during meetings at work for several days after my masterpiece. Subsequently, I offered his regular hairstylist money to help me with the next haircut via Zoom—to my surprise, she refused. Then I got furloughed for a few weeks. The break was much needed as taking care of two small children with both my husband and I working full time was easily the hardest thing I have ever done since I got my PhD. We had virtually no help with house cleaning or childcare. Still, my brain kept spinning with this idea of getting online help from professionals while attempting to bake macarons (and failing), folding sourdough bread (and failing), cutting my kids hair (and failing.) Then it hit me: There’s gotta be someone willing to take my money to help me cut my husbands’ hair. I just needed to find it. Since then, I cut my own bangs with online assistance and opened a website. We now have an amazing community of professionals ready to help you master your next DIY at-home project. You will end up helping those whose careers were disrupted by the pandemic. This is what nailit is about.
