Meet Sophie Davies of The Hair Parlor in Miracle Mile

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sophie Davies.

Sophie, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Having always had a passion for hair, I moved to Los Angeles 10 years ago and began my profession in the hair industry as a professional. I stared in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles as an assistant and started taking clients in the salon. After 4 years of hard work, I decided to open my own salon in the Miracle Mile. I saw an opportunity in the neighborhood and after a lot of searching, we found the perfect location. My husband and I, built it from the bottom up, permitting the space while adding new plumbing, electrical and Hvac. We then had the fun of designing the space. We opened our doors three years ago in February of 2015. We started with myself and another stylist and have now built up to a successful small business, four stylists and a salon coordinator/assistant. We love our neighborhood and have an excellent team.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It’s never been a perfect road but it’s a been a great and fulfilling road with many learning experiences and many areas of growth and learning. Most days I’m so grateful and appreciative of all our excellent clients and staff.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Hair Parlor on 8th – what should we know?

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
I do see a lot of change happening, especially with stylists and in the business end of the industry. The hair itself as a profession will always be creative. But in the end, I believe the hair salon will stand strong as it’s the pampering that clients are after… the safe and comfortable environment where they can be beautified.
