As a young girl in Guyana, South America, Donna always loved styling hair. At age 19, she was certain that she wanted to pursue as a career in cosmetology. Her parents, however, had other ideas. She would travel to England for formal nursing training. After all, it was one of the legitimate professions which reaped many benefits and rewards. They never considered cosmetology as a profession for their daughter and dismissed her ambitions.
Undeterred by their objections, the independent and self-reliant young woman was determined to follow her own path. It led Donna directly to the United States. Recognizing her immense talent for cosmetology, she attended cosmetology school. After graduating, she soon opened a salon in New York.
Still mindful of her parents opinion of cosmetology, Donna immediately established cosmetology as a legitimate career which requires ongoing education for stylists and a well structured, professional environment. She set high standards for herself as well as the stylists she employed.
After relocating to Atlanta, GA in 1991, Donna envisioned the ultimate hair salon that would cater to men as well as women The vision was of high ceilings, glossy floors and orange terra-cotta walls lined with green ivy – a place where her clients would come and lose themselves in luxury.
