New business: Traveling Beauty

August 31, 2008

Name of business: Traveling Beauty

Owner: Stacey Younker

Address: 146 Fairground Ave., Hagerstown

Opening date: January 2008

Products and services: "I am a full-service salon and spa. I am unique in that I can come to your location, no matter what the service - from cuts, color, perms, spa manicures, spa pedicures and facials to body treatments, up-do styles, hair extensions and makeup. I work with Washington County Home Health Care, serving the elderly. I specialize in weddings. My main focus are brides and their bridal parties. I have found that the brides really enjoy having someone come to their location to make them beautiful. It's less stress for the entire bridal party."

Market area: Mostly Washington County. "But I go deeper into Maryland for my bridal services."

How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it?: "I come from a long line of family-owned and operated businesses. I became a single mom in 2004 and decided that I needed to do something I love doing. Seeing how my family has made their way in life through owning a business, I felt I too can succeed in being my own boss."


Previous business experience: "I also own and operate a cleaning business. That is how I put myself through school and supported my kids while getting this business off the ground."

Number of employees: "I am a self proprietor. I have independent ladies that are licensed and insured that are on call to help out with my weddings."

Hours: Monday to Saturday as needed.
