What sets your business apart from your competition?
We are a premier cell phone store that sees the need to help our customers kick their smoking habit. While we offer many different pre-paid carriers and great phone repairs, it is smokeX vapor that sets us apart. smokeX is the hot new vapor line from Vapor Pros and we carry it exclusively for our customers.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
We saw a need in the community to have a high-end phone store where customers can come in and feel good about where they do their business. By combining pre-paid cell phones and e-cigs we can not only help people find the best pre-paid carrier for them but also to better their lives through our smokeX vapor.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Most pre-paid cell phone stores are a little run down and a little sketchy. We wanted to have a clean and nice welcoming presence for people when they walk in. So we put in wood floors and great displays to have a high level of professionalism. By offering customers the ability to come pay any pre-paid cell phone bill and get great customer service on phones and repairs, we have been able to build a solid foundation and a great customer base.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Helping customers find the right phone for their budget and seeing them quit smoking.
Like many young girls, Haley Parrish dreamt of one day living in Hollywood. But unlike other girls, Haley didn't want to be a star—she wanted to be the one behind the scenes, making the stars beautiful. She hardly wasted a moment pursuing this dream. After enrolling in a cosmetology program at age 16, she earned her license to style before she even earned her high-school diploma. Once that diploma was in her hand, she made the long trek across the United States to Los Angeles, where she basked in the warm breeze of blow dryers while attending MKC Beauty Academy.
Throughout her studies, Haley enjoyed the tutelage of world-renowned makeup artist Margaret Kimura as well as instruction from celebrity photographers Patricia De La Rosa and Ash Gupta. With her thirst for Hollywood glamour sated, she returned to the East Coast, where she worked as a stylist as well as a freelancer on photo shoots, commercials, and print work. Despite her return home, she hasn't lost her wanderlust; as a member of the Charleston Fashion Week hair-and-makeup team, Haley travels from coast to coast making people beautiful. Her home base is now a salon chair at Edge Salon and Boutique, where she pampers clients with products from Paul Mitchell, Temptu, and Keratin Complex Treatment.
