From Our Editors
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I'm an award-winning Master Hair Stylist (3x Bronner Bros. Champion), so I truly understand the importance of ensuring every hair style is customized to my client's hair type and texture. I've had so many clients tell me they thought they were getting the best until they sat in my chair.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After nine (9) years of working at JCPenney Salon as a lead Master Design Stylist, I felt it was time for me to take the leap of faith and open my own salon. So I packed my things and moved to Atlanta, GA and opened Platinum Hair by Merlande.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing my clients' facial expressions when I hand them the mirror. They are in pure shock because they can't believe just how good they look. They were already beautiful before but I can see they truly beautiful both inside and out.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I've had a client drive over four (4) hours to be serviced by me because they cannot find another stylist who can replicate what I've done for them. It doesn't get any better than that!
