A Chat with Hanayahairstyles
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We stand out from our competition by being readily available to you at your convenience. Being traveling stylists means that we are available before and after hours, and this also gives comfort to those who may be suffering from hair loss or prefer a more personal, one-on-one experience.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
My inspiration for starting this business was when an elderly woman asked me to do her hair at home. She was embarrassed for others to see how her hair looked under her wigs. I then realized that making people beautiful behind the scenes is just as important as in a salon store front.
What do you love most about your job?
I love seeing the reaction on a client’s face when they realize how much of a drastic change it is to have their styled by someone who actually cares about the health condition of their hair and scalp. I enjoy teaching people how important hair maintenance and care really is.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
One woman whose home I went too after hours (around 10 p.m.) cried after seeing hair on her head. She had suffered from hair loss due to chemotherapy. I installed a full weaving procedure and gave her a natural soft cut. She cried and hugged me for about five minutes! Amazing feeling!
