If you can dream it, do it! This dream has been brewing since my junior year in college. I was an accounting major sitting in the class that everyone took and dropped several times. I thought to myself, do I really want to be an accountant? I then switched to finance only to realize it did not fancy me as well. I said to myself, “I'd like to have my own salon one day” and landed on a general business major with a double minor in management and marketing. You see, since I was a little girl, I have been pampering tresses. From my grandmother's hair and dolls, to braiding hair after school in the bleachers, to being the hairstylist amongst fellow athletes in college.
Since my 2006 graduation, I have worked and taught in my field of study, obtained my cosmetology and cosmetology instructor licenses, and successfully managed my hair care business. For the past three years, I have been preparing for this venture and I'm so thrilled that it is coming to life. June 2015 I signed the contract to build my very own salon space, Pamper Me Salon Spa Studios! With my husbands support, I have been able to attain funding for a majority of the project. I now need help from my family, friends, clients, and well wishers to cover miscellaneous expenses ahead in preparation for the grand opening. Your donation will be
Pamper Me Salon Spa Studios is a space that consists of 4 mini salons. The beauty professionals that will occupy each space will operate as their own boss, setting their own hours and thriving as their own business. They will be responsible for paying their rent weekly and maintaining the equipment in their mini salon. The mini salon concept empowers beauty professionals to make more money, create and build their own brand and gives them more freedom and flexibility, without the risk or expense of start up costs.
All donations regardless of amount will be very appreciated. Those that donate $250 will receive a makeover, which includes hair styling by myself, and make up by Anna of Color Me Beautyfull. Those that give a donation of $500 or more will also receive a makeover and will be entered into a raffle for a chance to experience a photo shoot by Akibola Studios or a personal training session with Emmanuel - Keys for Fitness.
As you donate to my cause, you donate towards my efforts to give back to the community. I serve in different capacities from donating my services to women at the homeless shelters, speaking to young people about their plans, goals, and self care at various events, and teaching other small business owners keys to success.
AND, you will be a VIP guest at the grand opening!
Thank you for your time and consideration!
