She is the owner of Starr Stage Nonsurgical Studio and Starr Salon Suites, which provides a one-stop shop for all beauty professionals and consumers! (Boss Status!)
Starr attended an Esthetician program in the state of Georgia, where she became certified in 9 months. Though the field of beauty was not always her passion, Starr states that speaking with people has always been her passion.
“I love people, love interacting and conversating with people I will talk to anyone no matter where I am at. Lol that’s a passion of mines speaking with people and making them happy. But I can also say this field was not my passion because if you would have asked me 3 years ago I would not have had any clue that this would be the field that I would be in, but now I enjoy it so much.”
So what made Starr open her own business? Starr states,
“I noticed that as women we care more about our bodies and the way we look more than anything. One day, I figured how cool would it be for me to expand my skills by becoming someone that can really help change a person’s body, to make them feel better without surgery. I researched and stepped out on faith and began my business.”
