HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH YOUR NAME?
” My boyfriends dad came up with the name. We wanted a chill vibe and included beauty because the salon is not just hair. Blush was pink but we didn’t want to flat out say pink in the name. That’s how we stumbled upon Blush Beauty Lounge!”

It was definitely a risk to take but a great one because when you’re young you can work hard for the things that you want. You’re not gonna grow where ur comfortable, have a plan and save some money to go towards your goals! “
