Dawn Sanford always dreamt of opening her own salon. After a career spanning over 30 years, Dawn’s wish has finally come true with the grand opening of Shears & Shaves on Detroit’s Avenue of Fashion.
Shears & Shaves offers a full spectrum of luxury grooming and spa services for men and women, including haircuts and styling, coloring, beard and mustache shaves and trims, nail care, skincare, fusion massage and aromatherapy, as well as shoe shining.
“My long-time dream of creating a neighborhood barber and spa where people and families come together for community and comradery has been realized,” said Sanford. “It’s been a long road to get here, but I’ve been fortunate to have so many wonderful people support me on my journey.”
Sanford works with TechTown Detroit’s SWOT City, a customized support program for brick-and-mortar small businesses in Detroit neighborhoods. The program provides one-on-one assistance to help launch, stabilize and grow local businesses and strengthen neighborhood commercial districts.
“The determination of small business owners like Dawn Sanford is a testament to the strength of Detroit’s neighborhoods,” said Amy Rencher, TechTown’s SWOT City director. “TechTown is proud to partner with small business resources at the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation (DEGC) and Invest Detroit to support Detroit small business startups who contribute significantly to our local economy.”
