Talk about a career change. After working with pension systems for years, Angi Hamilton decided to go back to school to pursue the job she had always wanted: hair stylist. Her dream was further fulfilled when she recently purchased The Hair Studio in Holt.
“I always wanted to have my own shop in my own community,” Hamilton says. “The previous owner had a fabulous clientele with great relationships she’d built over the years.”
Hamilton opened The Hair Studio as owner and stylist on Aug. 1. Along with two new stylists, the 1,000 square foot shop now offers manicure and pedicure services, which were not available before. Hamilton hopes to grow her business to employ additional stylists, and to be known as a shop with top quality colorists.
“All the stylists who are in here now are big on keeping up their education,” she says. “We’ve travelled to New York as a group to learn about the latest and greatest in color. Color and chemical services are really our strong suit.”
