Don and Barb started their journey over 44 years ago. Don went to cosmetology school in 1966 and Barbara went in 1975. Early on, Don tested his skills competing in many competitions around the state. He won every competition and in doing so, was awarded the Sunshine Trophy, the most prestigious trophy awarded to cosmetologists at the time. Early on he would travel doing competitions in places like New York and L.A., but being a family man, he turned his focus to something more local. Barbara has always been an underlying part of the business. She has balanced work and family. Early on she was a stay at home mom doing the books and a few clients here and there. As the kids grew she built quite a clientele of her own.They are both starting a new phase of life.
Don is now semi-retired taking clients two days per week and helping out with the training of our staff, new and old. Barbara works a few days per week, taking clients and helping with the financial end of the business. Now they enjoy running the grandchildren around to practices, games and different events.
Their philosophy has always been, “Treat all of our guests and employees like family, work hard but enjoy life and always smile.”
When they are not behind the chair, Don enjoys fishing golfing and yoga. Barbara enjoys working out, baking and spending time with friends and family.
