Check out Arlington’s rising stars below.

Tinesha Davis

What sets me apart is that I only do foot care. A lot of nail technicians hate doing feet and I love it! To take someone’s feet from yikessssss to amazing is so enjoyable! Especially since we are in a state where it’s a warm majority of the time no one wants to see chipped toes and cuticle hanging! Not a good look. Read more>>

Promotion is everything for JuxLikeHoney Hair Oil. Gaining new customers and reminding current customers to send in before and after pics can be difficult.

I started MiND Your Matter as an initiative to promote mental wellness among women of African descent.

Lisa Renee

I began to love every inch of myself and it opened my eyes to a new found purpose of self-care and self-love that was very non-existent for a very long time. If I could do this for myself and my own life, I knew I had to do it for others without a single doubt in my mind. It was then I decided to make a business out of this to share my reflection with the parts of the world who ran from their own reflections and lost sight of who they are. Read more>>

Everyone wants to become famous for something. One of my biggest struggles was proving to male chefs that I could handle the heat. I don’t look my age, so others would see me as this little girl fresh out of high school or something and I am a grown woman. Also, I did had low confidence at one point because I didn’t know as much as others. Read more>>
