“Building YOUR Best You!” was developed to help individuals enhance the power of who they are. This is “SELF CARE” builder workshop. Individuals are encouraged to start building, rebuilding and/or increase their wellbeing from the inside out.  We are invested in encouraging others to live in who they are and not who they have been told they are. Through this workshop individuals find the power to reclaim their lives, to regain strength in who they are and who they want to be, to take back their freedom, to be empowered and not powerless. This program is a four-week power filled program, self-examination, self-improvement, and self enhancement workshop. This program is designed to help build self-esteem, self-confidence, self-worth, and self-truth. Dynamic motivational speakers share their stories to help heal inner pain. Gift bags comprised of makeover products including hair care products and tools, skin care products, make-up, and accessories are gifted to every participating individual. This program is hosted four times per year, for four weeks per workshop.

Our professional salon services help individuals become more aware of the first impression they give. In addition to professional salon services, we also address the inner person by hosting various mentoring workshops.
