Why launch your own place, after so many years working for others?

"I think that is kind of the goal for most people that do hair … I was just very ready to be on my own and … be self sustaining and self reliant,” she said. “As I’m learning, owning your own businesses is a lot of work, but it's definitely worth it.”


Running a one-person shops means all of the work is on her shoulders, but it also offers a flexibility that isn’t always possible working for others.

“Now I can work on my own time, which is nice. Especially after the last couple years, I think people are realizing how important time with family and friends is,” she added.
