Doty is amazed by how blessed she is to do what she loves every single day! She is so inspired by God’s creations, nature, fashion and the people around her. When she first got into this field in 1998 she didn’t know how far it would take her.
She has been able to evolve into so many different avenues of such a phenomenal industry. She spent her first 4 years working for Regis, the largest salon chain in the field during that time, while she attended Dudley Cosmetology University in North Carolina. Shortly after graduating she began working for them as a Sales Rep developing a route in Southwest Virginia. After a year of commuting between Virginia and North Carolina, Mr. Dudley asked her to join their team on full-time basis and relocate to their headquarters in Kernersville, North Carolina. Doty accepted the offer and took on one of the biggest challenges of her life. While working for Dudley Products, a leader in African American haircare, she was as an educator, platform artist, salon-spa assistant coordinator, stylist and much more.
After gleaning a wealth of knowledge, it was time for Doty to go to the next level, and she moved back to Virginia to pursue that dream. She had been offered a position with Regis (again as a manager) but in a perfect moment of God’s timing was thrust into the amazing opportunity to buy her first salon. During the first years of owning in Radford she was able to travel, working as an educator. She began using Schwarzkopf color in 2003 and became an educator for them soon after.
Through her career she has been able to travel all over the country, from LA to Chicago, to Miami, and back. Having been to so many different places she can honestly say there is no place like home. She moved the salon team to Christiansburg in 2006 and it has been such a wonderful journey. We have a phenomenal team and she is so proud of each and every one of them.
She has a strong passion for professionalism and positivity. She specializes in color, precision and free hand cutting and chemical straightening.
Allow her to invite you to join us at our salon and help you to find your true beauty from the inside out.
