Our brand started as a small one woman show in 2006 with a young girl who had an artistic flare and a heartfelt vision of compassion for touching the lives of others! It all began somewhat unconventionally as I had never planned to end up being self-employed. However, after a few years in a more traditional style salon, I found I was unable to fit in with a lot of the expectations put upon me in that environment! It was a tough walk as I felt much respect and admiration for the women around me yet I still felt I was not the same.
Thrust into the crossroads of my career there were many questions and hesitations on my mind: should I continue on; was it even a viable choice; how was I going to get established; was I even any good; where would I go; what did I really have to offer that this world hadn't already seen?
It's rather hard to sum up a journey like the one that has lead us to such heights! As the founder I can honestly say that I have realized the path that we walk shapes us. The choices we make form the course of our lives and the things we believe in guide us and give us the strength to carry on. Those whom we meet along the way inevitably touch us! This brand was born of love, sweat, a few tears and a whole lot of perseverance, strong principles and sacrifice. It has been formed by all who have been a part of its story and journey and it continues to grow each day! We are not just a salon but a celebration of the old school ways and a mentality that can't be questioned (There's no school like the old school Honey)! We were created through hard times, judgment, a lack of acceptance and nothing but a hope and the constant call to rise above that kept us moving onward to the next step! Every one of our staff members has a story of their own and has experienced personal challenges that have bred the same principles and Heart, ultimately leading them to be part of our great name! We are extremely proud and honoured to stand shoulder to shoulder with these amazing women and artists every day!
In the spirit that all the very best things are saved for last we really want to mention the importance of YOU, our clients! Over the years we have had the pleasure and privilege of serving many great individuals within our community! You have offered up such a source of unconditional support and encouragement- the fuel that keeps us going! Thanks to every one of you, all of our professionals wake up every morning knowing that today they get to go to work and create smiles! That is the most rewarding part of our journey! One smile is like a huge ripple that flows into the world around it, touching everyone with its contagious joy and comfort! No matter what others in our industry preach to us, this is truly what it's all about! We shine because you've loved us!
We are strong, sweet and simple.What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger! We won't ever stop because you can't kill a passion like the one we have! So with the utmost sincerity and much, much thanks to all who had the heart and courage to stand by and support us as we've come up, we say God bless and Thank you. We're here now baby!!
