Sometimes our best ideas happen over drinks! Three years ago, I was catching up with some friends when the idea of a mobile bridal beauty company came up. As my two friends’ lives became extremely busy, I decided to pursue the idea, solo.
One of the biggest frustrations I have working in the beauty industry is seeing how few stylists and salons owners actually meet their financial potential—their annual income is often static.

Is it fair for a man and a woman to pay different prices for a simple trim? If we look at the average salon’s service menu and pricing, there is a clear separation between what men and women are charged.
