Lexxi: An Inside Look at Life as a Transgender Hair Stylist
As a writer focusing on LGBTQ+ issues and representation in media, I'm always interested in sharing untold stories from within marginalized communities. Today I had the pleasure of speaking with a transgender hair stylist named Lexxi Ts about her everyday experiences and journey so far. Her candid social media posts provided a glimpse into both the mundane routines and unique challenges of living authentically as a trans woman.
Getting Ready for Work
In her morning video posted to TikTok, Lexxi documents her preparation for another day at the salon. Like many of us, she checks the weather and hopes for good client traffic. But as a trans woman, even routine tasks like doing her makeup come with an underlying effort to be gendered correctly by strangers. Dermablend's full coverage helps Lexxi feel comfortable in her presentation without sacrificing her artistic flair behind the chair.
Life at the Salon
Working with hair provides Lexxi an avenue for creativity and connection with clients. However, she notes that some reviews on her profile undermine her expertise by misgendering her or making inappropriate comments about her identity. As the only openly trans stylist at her shop, client biases add an invisible labor of discretion and discretion. Still, she finds solace in the regulars who see her simply as the talented professional she is.
Navigating Prejudice with Positivity
Despite facing misunderstandings from a small minority, Lexxi's videos overwhelmingly spread a message of self-love, empowerment and living authentically on her own terms. With grace and humor, she navigates the daily ambiguities of being visibly trans in a often cisnormative world. Her refreshing candor offers hope and visibility for other trans people still questioning how to best express themselves. Most of all, Lexxi shows that true beauty comes from within, and one's soul cannot be hidden regardless of outward appearance or the opinions of others.
Creating Change through Representation
By broadcasting short snapshots from her routine, Lexxi edifies viewers on the reality of trans experiences while countering prejudices with disarming charm. Over time, greater representation in media and everyday roles like hair stylist can help foster more widespread empathy and inclusion. Though progress remains, courageous trailblazers like Lexxi prove that living authentically is the surest way to change prevailing societal norms. I look forward to following her continuing journey and am inspired by her message of hope, resilience and using one's platform to uplift others.
In the meantime, please join me in showing Lexxi your support on TikTok as she goes about her day helping clients feel confident in who they see in the mirror.
