I have been a hair stylist for 15 years. I have worked on the north side, east side, west side, and south side. When I finally accepted the fact that I would be a salon owner my first desire was to change the image and reputation of African American salons. We are known for poor customer service, mediocre talent (especially when it came to cutting and coloring hair), salon full of gossip and drama, and poor time management. My second desire was to be in “our neighborhood”. It didn’t make since to me that we didn’t have nice salons in our area. It’s such a foreign thing. This place has fulfilled every desire that I could have imagined in these last three years. As I plan my relocation my desire and business model is still the same but there are still some key elements that I’m missing like community service, educating and training students, offering more add on services, and a few others that I’m pondering on. Happy birthday to The Beverly Salon! I’m so thankful that God trusted me to be the visionary for this business. The good has out weighed the bad and finical overflow has taken over like never before for myself and my team. This is a kingdom connection!!!!
