Janay Smith first contacted the SBDC in January 2013. She had developed an idea to create “the ultimate full salon experience” where her customers could get their nails done, haircut, extensions, braiding and waxing.
Janay had been making her own hair conditioners and creams and cutting, styling and braiding hair since 2006, and now wanted to purchase an RV that she could convert into a full service mobile beauty salon. Janay was seeking funding for the purchase and renovation of an RV, and for sinks, chairs, dryers and work stations.
Janay’s objective to create an organically soothing, all-in-one head to toe experience, by using products with chemical-free ingredients that are custom made to fit the needs of her clients, was finally put into action; Uniquely Chic opened for business in July 2014!
