A Chat with Amanda Petersen at Salons by JC- Riverdale Village
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I offer customized hair coloring and correction, men's, women's and children's haircuts, styling, updo's, brow/eyelash tinting and facial waxing!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have always loved hair. I have had a passion for creating wearable art for years. I truly love what I do and put my heart and talent into every service I offer. I wanted the freedom to create on my own terms and time frame, since I like to be detailed and pride myself on quality over quantity.
What do you love most about your job?
Using my creative talents to help my clients feel great about themselves is the most rewarding job I could have ever dreamed of! I am an artist at heart, and aim to make a positive impact on peoples lives. It's not just styling hair, it's trust, caring and respect for one another.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I was done with a color and cut, turned my client to the mirror, she started crying and told me she had never felt beautiful before and that I gave her that gift. I teared up knowing that I had such an impact on someone. She gave me the biggest hug. That touched me so deeply, Ill never forget that.
