“I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful.”
The beauty industry has been my passion for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a lower-middle class family. My basic needs were always met but we definitely did not have fancy things nor did we go on elaborate vacations. I was raised knowing nothing would be handed to me. I would have to work hard and struggle in order to achieve my dreams…and that I did. I put myself through beauty school right out of high school, a huge achievement in my book! However; I did not expect to lose everything and move from Texas to Oklahoma. By then I was a single mom struggling to make ends meet. Life handed me lemons, but I refused to fall. I completed beauty school a second time and with the support of my parents, I opened my first salon! It was quaint and in a small town on the outskirts of a small city. I made ends meet with the small amount of business I received but I was not reaching the full capacity of what I was capable of. I was destined for greater things!
As cliché as this sounds, I had a dream… I dreamed of a salon that not only gave back to the community but one that soared above all others! With a lot of determination, nothing to lose, and hard work, Kadillac Barbies Salon was born in one of the “fastest growing towns” in the U.S.! Kadillac Barbies Salon is a retro upscale salon with a laid-back inviting atmosphere. Our OPB Tool Boxes have definitely given my stylists the “competitive edge” against other salons.
In less than 2 years, Kadillac Barbies has received recognition from leading national beauty industries as the “IT” salon. Not only do we make people feel beautiful everyday, we also give back to the community. We hold fundraisers and benefits for locals or non-profits and we give back to the less fortunate. For me It’s not about the money, it’s about giving without expecting to receive. I came from little, fought to get to the top, and I won’t stop until I have accomplished everything I set my mind to. Thanks to the Original Pink Box Company for empowering women by giving them products that set them apart while competing with the best.
