What inspired you to open The Studio? The Studio has been in business for a few years but when we decided to move locations and start a full service (hair, nails and skin) it was all about more opportunity. We had grown out of the small space we were in previously and ready to expand into an upscale full service facility.
What is your professional background? Prior to attending Cosmetology school in 2012, I was the lead paralegal for a local defense attorney. I’ve dabbled in a few different careers but Cosmetology is my true love!
What is your business background and how did you find your location? Besides owning my own business, I’ve worked for several small business owners in town. We were able to snag our amazing salon space from Ream Properties.
What services do you offer? At The Studio we offer all types of hair services, manicures and pedicures and microdermabrasion/facials. Additionally, we facilitate spa parties to Bridal groups, little girls birthday parties or just anyone wanting a few hours of relaxation with some friends/family.
What are your hours? Mostly by appointment 6 days a week.
