Taneice is the owner of Heaven Your Way, a full service salon and spa dedicated to helping those with cancer or who need special treatment. The salon and spa is located in Old Bridge, near two of the most renowned cancer centers in New Jersey.

According to Taneice, the hair replacement industry earns more than $1 billion/year in the United States alone. Millions of women suffer from some form of alopecia or sudden hair loss every day.

Having experienced her own traumatic hair loss several years ago, Taneice wanted to do something to help women and educate them about the latest techniques to help combat their hair loss.

The salon and spa offers unique services such as custom wigs, head shavings, mastectomy fittings, and lymphatic drainage, as well as massages, facials, wraps, pedicures, nails, and waxing. It also offers retail products that are all natural, organic, paraben and carcinogen free.

This loan will be used for expenses associated with a start-up salon and spa including rent, insurance, fees, licensing, inventory, equipment, build-out costs, advertising, products and supplies, signage, software, utilities and wages. In addition, Heaven Your Way hopes to create 14 jobs upon opening.
