From Hairspray to the hair salon: Actress Nikki Blonsky is now logging part time hours at her hometown beauty parlor on Long Island in order to make ends meet.
"Its true. I'm working at Superstar Salon as a makeup artist and more. I'm proud to be working and paying bills but I'll NEVER lose sight of my dreams," she said.
The part-time gig doesn't mean she's out of the spotlight for good, however..
Nikki Blonsky was kind of big for awhile.
The star, who most recently appeared on ABC Family's Huge, says, "Just 'cause I'm part time working doesn't mean I'm giving up on my dreams; don't give up on yours."
"I might book something big soon. Keep positive," she told her Twitter 2,775 followers.
The actress recently earned her cosmetology license, and for what it's worth, Blonsky's customers appear to be happy with her work at the business.
"I was so surprised today when I showed up at Superstar to get my makeup done and it turned out to be Nikki Blonsky applying it," wrote one customer on Facebook.
"She did a great job and I really look like a SUPERSTAR. Thanks to all the wonderful staff and I wish all the best to their newest employee cosmetologist Nikki Blonsky."
