1. Describe what it is that you do.

I am the owner of Stefanie Olesen Accessories. I design hair accessories & my company is based out of Asbury Park, NJ. I found my passion for designing headbands while I was still in college, and have been taking the steps towards building my brand and making a name for myself ever since. I love what I do; not only do I want my customers to feel beautiful in my products, but I want them to be as comfortable as possible!

2. What accomplishments are you most proud of, thus far?

I am very proud of each and every one of my designs. I love seeing my visions come to life, and nothing makes me smile more than seeing a customer wearing one of my pieces! It is amazing to see how I have evolved as a designer just in the past year; I am proud of the opportunities that have been given to me, and I am grateful to have met so many wonderful people along the way.

3. What are your ultimate goals? Short term, Long term.

My short term goals include perfecting my website, building my image & social media platforms, & perfecting my designs. I also plan on continuing to get my products in local boutiques.

My long term goals include getting my products into department stores & well known online boutiques. Another long term goal of mine is to travel & get my products in local boutiques all over the country.

4. What or who inspired your interest?

There are so many different things that inspire me. I love walking around NYC to get inspiration. I get lost in the fabric & bead stores just thinking about what I want to create next. I also get inspired by other designers’ work & things that surround me.. I also love getting suggestions from different people!

5. Do you have a favorite piece from your collection?

I don’t think I have just one favorite.. I love all of my pieces!

6. What keeps you motivated?

I look up to other successful designers that started with an idea just like I did – it makes me work harder and keeps me motivated.Although it gets really tough some times, I always keep my head up & try to stay positive. Nothing comes easy, and this is the path that I took because I know that I have what it takes to do something amazing with my life..and see where my small business has gone in the past few months reassures me that I am doing something right.

7. What is your favorite quote?

“Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” -Muhammad Ali

8. What are you working on NOW?

Right now, I am perfecting my summer line! I am so excited to launch it and share my latest creations with everyone!

9. Since allure and cure embraces some guilty pleasure,

What is YOUR guilty pleasure?
MAKEUP! I love makeup & always have. Many people don’t know this, but I also have been working as a makeup artist since I was about 17. I have an entire makeup counter in my bathroom..and I have about 30 lip glosses in my bag!
