Turning Industry Expertise into Business Ownership
Lindsey Silva, owner of The Silva Chair in Anchorage, Alaska, started in the beauty industry years ago as a receptionist for a high traffic Salon. After several years she knew she had a passion and talent for it and so she decided to return to school to obtain her license. Through the years, Lindsey has stayed current through certifications including a SoCap Hair Extention Certification, Deva Curl Certification and Minkys Eyelash Extension Certification.
In addition to staying current with industry trends, Lindsey began working with the Alaska Small Business Development Center in 2013 to increase her business acumen. For several years she worked through the business plan with her Advisor Kimberlee Hayward and discussed several opportunities to purchase existing Salons. As she waited for the right opportunity, Lindsey worked with Kimberlee on marketing her brand and creating a website that would help attract new customers.
