For the past three weeks, Ahwatukee Chamber of Commerce member LeKisha Woods has been working endlessly to get her new salon B’Dazzled Beauty LLC in Ahwatukee off the ground.

Woods has had 12 years experience in the salon profession, and decided to branch out to form her own business.

She centers her business on giving her customers the right price for her services, with no hidden costs, and provide a business that is mobile.

“I try to tailor my services around my biggest pet peeves and the things that I like,” Woods said.

Her mobilization allows her to go to her customers who are unable to take the trip to her salon office.

“A lot of my clients have older parents that they take care of and can’t take them out of the house, so I’ll go to them,” Woods said. “I work with an organization right now that allows their employees to take breaks, so once a week I set up in their lobby.”

While beginning the mobile portion of her business, Woods began conducting research on the type of services she wanted to provide. What she found was that not many would offer a mobile service, and the few that did would inflate prices.

“I just wanted to be able to offer something that was reasonable for people to be able to afford,” Woods said. “I only increase the mobile services about $10 to $15, so it’s not a big jump in price. I just figured as long as I’m serving those close-surrounding communities, there’s no reason for me to go way up in price.”

She decided to move her business in the Ahwatukee area because of the clientele around the area and the fact that she lives nearby.

“I like Ahwatukee and I spend a lot of time in Ahwatukee,” she said.

Woods has been marketing her services on her Facebook page offering discounted prices and weekly specials to her customers.

She also continues to corner the beauty market by teaming up with fellow employee Norma Galvan, who is a hair stylist.

Galvan was interested in teaming up with Woods because she wanted to branch out in the business and continue increasing her clientele.

“I know that LeKisha and I can do it together and maybe later in the future we can get a bigger place,” she said.

B’Dazzled Beauty LLC is located at 3936 E. Chandler Blvd., Suite 102. For more information about B’Dazzled Beauty LLC or to schedule appointments, visit www.BDazzledBeauty.com or call (602) 492-6967.
