Growing up in the Northeast was amazing! The leaves changing color in the fall, the cool air and the fresh smell of autumn. There is nothing like it! I am fortunate enough to still arrange visits home to spend time with missed family and friends.
I began working in the hospitality industry at 16 years of age. I loved the interaction with people and was always curious for feedback on their experiences. Through this, I became a "people person" and truly learned to listen to the customer.
Later I took part in a wonderful experience with Marriott Hotels as a manager. Their intense guest and hospitality training taught me life changing approaches that I now utilize in my own life and business.
At age 20, I decided to go after my dream. I walked into the local cosmetology school and asked how soon could I enroll. Luckily, the next start date was in 2 weeks! I jumped on it. There was no stopping me then! I eventually graduated from the New England School of Hairdressing in 1992 and finally became a licensed stylist!
Moving to the Sarasota area in 1997 was one of the best decisions of my life. I fell in love with the people, the beaches and of course the perfect weather. It was really exciting to start over fresh in a new town with new faces! Of course this also meant not having a single person in my client base. I knew I had a great deal of hard work ahead of me, but I LOVE a challenge! Soon enough I had a full book of clients and loyal friends to count on for business.
In 2004, Angelique's A Salon & Boutique, LLC. was born! In the salon, I practice exceptional customer service daily.
As a hairstylist with over 23 years experience I realize I am not a mind reader.
I want to know YOUR thoughts and hear YOUR feedback and suggestions.
The needs of my clients are of the utmost importance and I strive to fulfill those needs with every visit.
I also love the days when I am working with my clients. I provide them with an exceptional hair styling experience on each visit. I have some of the most supportive, wonderful and loyal clients!
Thank you ALL for that :)
You are invited to be MY special guest. Let me give you superior care and attention.
