Today we’d like to introduce you to Khrys Davenport.
Khrys, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My favorite part of my story is that it’s built on legacy. I was raised by some fabulous women. Each of them are a part of why I am who I am. My mother has an amazing business acumen and has always been an entrepreneur. My grandmother is the definition of a DIVA! She’s always been so fashion-forward, luxurious and easy to talk to. I also have six aunties, so being surrounded by girl power is an understatement.
I remember being a teenage girl and being so excited to work in my Aunt Lisa Perry’s salon over the summer break. There I learned so many lesson on life, hair, running a successful business and how to treat your customers. Years later, I am opening my first salon in one of her previous salon spaces. I am humble and honored to carry on these legacies.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I’m sure every entrepreneur would say that there are ups and downs along the road. I try not to dwell on obstacles too long and keep going forward. Some steps are harder than others but all steps are progress.
Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Hollywood Salon Suites and Monsta Beauty – what should we know?
Hollywood Salon Suites offers beauty services from private industry professionals. From hair and makeup to personal styling and one-on-one classes, we are a one-stop-shop for all of your beauty needs. We also lease private space to stylist, estheticians, MUAs, lash techs and online boutiques looking for a storefront.
I am most proud of the Hollywood 3-Hour Braid Bar. We safely install a variety of braided extensions in half the time of a normal salon appointment. No more 6-8 hours in the chair for beautiful braids. We pride ourselves in getting the majority of our clients out of the salon and back to life in three hours or less. We know women have a lot to do. Our entire salon is designed to save you time.
Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
Family has been my building block. I could spend forever listing all the ways they influenced me, guided me, mentored me, financially assisted me, sacrificed time with me and molded me into the woman I am today. My Mom-Rene, Dad-Kevin, Spouse-Jeremy, Aunt Lisa, my Daughter- T’Ruth and siblings T and KB have all poured so much into this project: I couldn’t imagine doing any of this to the level that we have without them.
