Khalilah is a single owner of an upscale hair salon called Hair Theater by Semaj.
This storefront-based business is a full-service hair salon, providing coloring, weaving, pressing and perms to a wide variety of clients.
Khalilah has more than 21 years of experience as a cosmetologist, but has been in business for herself for just two years. An Accion Texas loan provided funds for her to purchase her own furniture and equipment (such as chairs and hair dryers). Ultimately, having these supplies will enable her to attract more customers and increase her bottom line.
