Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) August 01, 2012
Most Black, Afro-Latino, African American, or mixed race woman have faced a major hair dilemma or two in their lifetime. However, referrals from friends and online searches can not be applied to every situation. What if she moves to a place where the minority population is slim? Or if she has yet to make connections on her college campus? Or, God-forbid she is on vacation and needs a stylist to repair her hair after damage from rain? This is where MyBlackTresses.com can be of assistance.
"I designed MyBlackTresses.com to be a user friendly site for both visitors and service providers," says Regine Nelson, founder. "I've had the honor of relocating more than five times in the past 10 years. With each move came the dreaded question: Where will I get my hair done? After several searches on sites like Google and Yelp, I came up with few results. I even tried some of the other Black Hair Salon directories and found that many of the salons had outdated listings. I was at a loss."
As a new Black hair salon and stylist directory, MyBlackTresses.com stands out due to its updated and diverse listings. They have a team that contacts their service providers a minimum of two times per year in order to ensure the accuracy of their listings. The site also boasts listings that provide contact information for traditional stylists who are of African descent as well as non-Black stylist who provide ethnic hair services. To date MyBlackTresses.com has over 1,000 listings and new service providers are added daily. With more than 30 listings in Canada, the next frontier for MyBlackTresses is Europe and Asia.
"I find so much value in MyBlackTresses.com because it has the potential to bring me new clients," says Bridgit Louie of Expressions Hair Salon in Menlo Park, CA. "I provide my services inside of a salon that predominately caters to Caucasian clientele. I have a website but I don't do any additional advertising. MyBlackTresses.com helps to put me in front of women who are searching for my services but wouldn't be able to find me otherwise."
MyBlackTresses.com is here to stay in order to serve that new college student, the upwardly mobile career professional, the world-wide traveler, and the newly relocated woman. Visitors to the site are called "Stylist Hunters" by the founder. Created for and by the black woman who is in search of a Black/ethnic hair salon or stylist. MyBlackTresses is here to "help a sista" out.
