Inspired by my Daughter
I want to take a moment to share with our revitalized community a little about our new vision for our salon.
Owning this wonderful salon was something that I could have only dreamed about. In 2017, for the second time, I discovered that dreams do come true when I had the privilege of acquiring Bangz Salon from my mentor whom I love and respect. As I embarked upon this new journey, it came with unexpected challenges and lessons. Through those lessons, I began to realize that I had an opportunity to create something different. Something that was more than just a salon or spa. Beauty may not be skin deep, but I believe that our outward glow is the window to our soul.
As I thought about the meaning behind what we create as beauty technicians, I began to think about my own personal experiences as a mother. I was never much of a girly girl, and thought that I never wanted a daughter of my own. Boys were easier and I related to them better. It is funny how life has a way of giving us what we need instead of what we want. In 2015, my husband and I were blessed with our second child. A beautiful, perfectly pink and plump baby girl came screaming her way into our world and I couldn't help but relish in the love and purpose that this tiny person bestowed upon us. We weren't sure what that purpose was, but we knew it was strong. It was a mere day into her life she when smiled at me for the first time, and she hasn’t stopped smiling since. Jovie Claire softened me, and I experienced love like I had never known before.
When I decided to rebrand my salon, I knew it had to be something that resonated within my soul. Something that drove me to work hard. Everything I came up with was cliché. I even played around with the initials of all my children, but it began to sound more like a mattress company rather than a salon. A vision came to me one day with Jovie's name. So I began to experiment with her initials. It occurred to me that one day, this venture would be hers. That she embodied everything I wished to be and everything I envisioned our salon to be; sweet yet fierce, loving, free-spirited, nurturing, and oh so fun! She is ALWAYS happy and lights up any room she is in. It made perfect sense to honor my daughter in this venture of ours.
I have the most sincere privilege of introducing Gaston County to Jovie C Salon+Spa. Equally exciting, equally scary. We are Jovie C.
Happy. Strong. Beautiful.
