I opened Paralee Boyd to solve for a problem that women with thick and curly hair were facing everywhere.  I wanted to create a space that provided quality hair care, was timely, and committed to customer service.  Like several of us, I had grown tired of spending my Saturdays in hair salons.


I had grown tired of navigating an appointment with my schedule and paying a premium for the reputation of the stylist and not the quality of my hair care.


In 2012, I opened the first location of Paralee Boyd in Southfield, MI.  Oh how I wish I could go back and tell that new entrepreneur all that I know now.  I would tell her that there are going to be days you want to quit.  There are mistakes you’re going to make, but keep going.  You’ve come so far from that girl in Kalamazoo, MI…keep going.
