A Chat with First Impressions Salon
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are unique, [with] low prices. We do all styles in all ethnic groups. We also offer barber and nail services.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration to start my business, before I became a licensed hairstylist, I would volunteer to do strangers’ hair. Once I completed the work on their hair, I noticed a change in their attitude. It was positive and inspiring. I knew this was what I wanted to do in life—make people happy.
What do you love most about your job?
I love to do hair, I love making people feel good, [and] give them a sense of pride and motivation.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
My client, and I quote: “This is the best hairstyle I’ve ever had, I looked in the mirror and cried, I felt beautiful.“
