Driven, hardworking, spunky and professional entrepreneur, mother, hairstylist and girl boss extraordinaire, Elizabeth Faye started her romance with the beauty industry at the ripe age of twelve.
Born and raised in downtown Las Vegas and quite the troubled teen, she decided to make statement by cutting and coloring her own hair. Disappointed, her parents and private school dean suspended her from school. This attempt landed her a lucky seat at a celebrity salon at the Mandalay Bay for the classic “color correction”. This experience lead her her first mentor and hairstylist, who helped the young girl out by doing her hair complimentary if she would only bring back her report card with better grades on it.
Slowly “C’s turned into “B’s” and “B’s” turned into “A’s”. She was mentored by this stylist and the entire Salon team in Las Vegas/Chicago. She swept floors, served guests, shampooed hair for free, all which ultimately landed her a full-blown job position and the many amazing job opportunities that came through the company after.
One act of kindness behind the chair changed my life.
