How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it?"After cutting all the hair off all the dolls I ever had as a kid, I would be safe to say it was in my nature to do something with this talent.

"I since have graduated from Award Beauty School in Hagerstown in 1984 and have been styling and cutting since.

"I have also picked up the barber side of cutting and choose to cut on the male side of the field. I have always wanted to own my own business and after many doors closing in my face I never gave up the idea.


"After thinking of how I can get started small and grow large, I decided to open in my home. With the help of my family and my better half, Charles Miller. This has been my greatest achievement. I now provide quality service with the atmosphere that is like no other."

Previous business experience: She has cut hair in the Frederick area in various shops over the past 10 years.
