Bianca's story

With their combined skills and expertise, Bianca and her fiancé created Wavvy Barber and Beauty Salon, a full-service, family-oriented barber shop and beauty salon that offers both the traditional services found in many chain hair salons, and a number of unique touches that help it stand apart from the San Antonio competition. These include spa services (manicures, pedicures, etc.) and hairstyles such as tapers, edge-ups and perms. As the company’s owner, Bianca established a firm mission to provide the highest quality services at affordable prices. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and an inviting environment are trademarks of the Wavvy brand. Bianca feels that these are the components that will keep her clients returning to the salon time and time again. In the process of developing her business plan, financing was the one major roadblock Bianca encountered. But she didn’t let that deter her. While doing research online about financing options, Bianca came across the Accion Texas Inc. website. She reached out to the lending staff and worked with them to qualify for a loan to launch her business. Now Bianca can purchase new equipment, as well as create a website to complement the social media components that are essential to her marketing strategy. Bianca is thrilled to take the first step towards opening the Wavvy Barber and Beauty Salon. She has defined concrete goals that she would like her business to accomplish, including the addition of 10 full-time employees who will embrace the Wavvy mission and help it reach its revenue goals.
