Montego Bay Business News: Beauty and Beyond – Licensed, Certified and Proven – “Dear Diary, Today I want” might just have been how upcoming and growing salon owner decided to start her business. Shaday Plummer, Make-Up Artist and Hairstylist, has been the owner of her own salon a little over a year, Dare Diary Studio- Beauty and Cosmetics.
Having such passion and drive is what has built her name and legacy since inception. Being in the business for three plus years, her practice started at her Mom’s Salon. Where, in her two years of college after school, she would assist her part-time by completing a few gigs alongside her and by herself. Her few practices, however, turned out to be more than just a craft to become a skill and now her full-time job.
She would often time, be urged to start a business of her own but the fear of what could happen held her back for a while. Until in February of 2017 she was determined to start her own salon. Thinking it would be complete in a 3 month period, things took a while to manifest. “Good things take time,” she added, as the business was completely in order by December of 2017. Though her own business was prolonged, her certification was not. In no time, Shaday was able to complete licensing and certification for her business, as she possesses great skills and determination. She is now, a certified Hairstylist by Heart College of Beauty Services of Jamaica. She went the extra mile, as she also completed Makeup certification by, Angel Cumberbatch and addition hairstyling certification by, Alonzo Arnold, an American Top Stylist, in Trinidad and Tobago.
