What inspired you to start your salon?
I grew up around the hair industry. My uncle owned a hair salon and was a master stylist. I have been blessed to surround myself with the likes of my aunts and godmother that have embraced the beauty industry. They allowed me to shadow their works.
You have a unique business name. What does the name " Zsavets House of Style" represent? My middle name is Zsavet, inspired after my mother's name Zsa Zsa. Zsavet speaks power, class and elegance.

Do you have a favorite hairstyle?
I pride myself on doing hair extensions, updos, and custom wigs.
Are there any challenges you've had to overcome as a salonist?
You hear entrepreneurship and the push to have your own. Yet being an entrepreneur is hard work. Within my first two years being open, my salon flooded. I had insurance, but I wasn't properly covered. I had to rent space to continue to provide service to my clients and manage to get repairs done. This was a major setback. I was determined to reopen my salon. This is the kind of challenge people don't discuss when speaking of the joys of entrepreneurship and a salonist. Over time, you learn the balance because the reward is knowing you are able to provide a space for a stylist to show their craft. The clients leave pleased as they enjoy their moment of self-care.
Can you leave our readers with a daily hair tip to keep their hair healthy?
Most definitely, I have a home care system and a night-time regiment. It is very important that you comb out your hair, wrap your hair with a silk/satin pillowcase, bonnet, or scarf. This helps keep your hair growing, strong, and beautiful. Listen and trust your stylist.
