Community Highlights: Meet Shakira Miller of Pink’s Silk Salon

Today we’d like to introduce you to Shakira Miller.

Hi Shakira, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I started doing cosmetology after I graduated college so I went to college went to the corporate lifestyle and didn’t like it. Then I decided to go back to school for beauty which I enjoy the most shadow under other popular salon & eventually branched out on my own as a business owner.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It hasn’t always been easy… receiving my license through school was a challenge and also building clientele.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
My business is a natural hair salon… I am located in upstate NY Rochester, NY but is planning to move to the LA area in September. I specialize in natural silk presses & blowouts! Pixie cut blonde styles! What sets me apart from others is I am a professional salon that provides and go above and beyond for my clients. I am proud of finally becoming a business owner and doing what I love and enjoy! My brand is a comfortable & very girly pink salon.

We all have a different way of looking at and defining success. How do you define success?
Success is being happy while making money. Doing what you love to do while getting paid. And making clients happy of course.
