These are actual email questions regarding various visas from our clients. (We have protected their identity and privacy).

Q: Can I receive an O-1 visa as a hairstylist?

A: We have done numerous O-1 visas, and USCIS is often much more flexible on this visa than they are with other work visas. However it comes down to the quality of the recommendation letters. In addition, secondary evidence such as articles about you, any type of awards or prestigious invitations within your industry, pictures of prestigious salons using your hair styles as advertisements. (These are just ideas and not mandatory)

So what we would like on our side is for you to write a resume, and list the secondary evidence that you can eventually produce. In addition, the possible recommendation letters you can get, we just need their name their job title, and a couple of sentences which demonstrate that they have some expertise or some influence in the field.

With that we can do in an evaluation regarding the potential success of your O-1 visa case.
