Why I started my business
I wanted to create a healthy environment for my employees to learn to work together as a team, helping and taking care of each other so they could balance a career and family while benefiting from a flexible work schedule.

Why I do what I do
I enjoy making people feel better about themselves. Hair is often an extension of who you are so when your hair looks great you feel great.

My tools of the trade
My ears! I listen to people so I can understand how they feel about themselves and help them feel safe in the chair. This way I can help them express who they are through their hair.
