Boss Hair Salon, a diverse, full-service hair salon located at 464 Prospect Boulevard, Frederick MD catering to all hair types.
The salon was the brainchild of Hilaria Kwakumey, who started the business after she was furloughed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hilaria, who is originally from Ghana, has a background in the hospitality industry. However, after ultimately losing her job, she decided to pursue her childhood dream of owning a salon.
“I thought, what better season than now to start on my dream of owning a hair salon, with my management and talent acquisition background in hospitality,” Hilaria says. “I felt people should always want to look good, want their hair done and be at their best no matter the times.”
Hilaria says she began researching the hair salon industry and relied on mentors to help support her in the process. Boss Hair Salon will offer services for all hair types, including braids, relaxers, weaves, perms, haircuts and colors. Additional services include eyebrows and lashes. She says she will use her corporate background from managing different front office, sales, and talent acquisition divisions to make each customer at Boss Hair Salon feel valued and welcomed.
“Our goal is to be your one-stop shop for all hair types. We strive to make our clients feel like a “boss,” and at the same time, build a stronger community where our differences are celebrated,” she says.
Born out of a need to shift gears, Hilaria is taking what initially was a hardship and turning it into the realization of a dream.
“The pandemic has been a complete wake up call for everything I thought I knew,” Hilaria says. “The pandemic made me realize that as an entrepreneur, I must be ready and adaptable because anything can happen at any moment – even the most unimaginable things.”
