We had the good fortune of connecting with LaTarah Edmond and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi LaTarah, what do you attribute your success to?
Marketing, Consistency and Professionalism
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
The mission of Good Hair Day Salon is to provide a superior customer experience by offering a complete portfolio of beauty services, professional retail products and convenient scheduling in a comfortable and empowering environment. We want our clients to look and feel their best from the services performed by our diverse team of friendly and educated stylists. I’m most proud of seeing my passion for hair styling and my vision of entrepreneurship become a reality. It is truly a step of faith to completely switch career paths and to leave the comfort of a corporate job to be self employed. It takes lots of strategic planning, trial and error, careful execution and the willingness to stretch and grow. The last 12 years of being a salon owner hasn’t always been easy. I have learned valuable lessons and honed my leadership, business, people, and social skills through experiences ranging from day to day client interactions to professional conferences. I want people to know that the salon experience is quite impactful and I want that experience to be a positive, professional and memorable.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I like Bishop Arts District. Some of my favorite small business owned eateries are in that area such as Cretia’s and La Taqueria Si Hay . And it’s not too far away from Downtown Dallas which has museums, zoos, parks and a great night life.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My parents played a key role in encouraging me to dream big and work diligently to make those dreams a reality. I have an amazing tribe compiled of family, friends and associates from various organizations who have served as cheerleaders, mentors and supporters.
