Young entrepreneur opens salon
January 24, 2019 | View PDF
Entrepreneurs are usually courageous, independent, passionate and driven. However, when you are also a young mother, you are often looking for a way to pursue your passion while making it possible to spend more time with your family.
That is what Lizbeth Garcia of The Black Comb said when asked why she started her own business. "I was working two jobs, six days out of the week," she said. "I didn't have enough time to spend with my kids, so I decided to do something where I can have my kids around me." Garcia completed Marinello's School of Beauty and hasn't looked back.
"The salon opened in April 2018," Garcia said. "Within the first two months, it was broken into, and all of my equipment was stolen." Garcia said she contacted the Wasco Sheriff's Department substation; however, nothing has been recovered or returned.
Despite that setback, Garcia keeps a positive attitude about her shop. "I am looking forward to hiring additional stylists in the near future." The interior of The Black Comb is sleek and modern with nicely furnished, black stations ready for new stylists.
And she meets the needs of her clientele, including coloring hair every color of the rainbow and more.
The Black Comb offers haircuts and coloring for women, men and children, as well as updos, makeup, waxing and threading. Prices for haircuts typically range from $10 for children to $25 for a woman's cut, depending on the length of the customer's hair.
The Black Comb is located in downtown Wasco, behind Boost Mobile, at 900 7th St., Suite D. Call 661-858-7266 for an appointment, and follow the salon on Facebook and Instagram @theblackcomb661 for pictures and updates.
