Helen, the beauty salon in Los Angeles, has been one of the most recognizable brands in recent years.
It’s one of only two Los Angeles-based beauty salons, alongside The Honest Company, and is the brand’s flagship location.
It opened its doors in 1997 and has expanded into other states, like Ohio and California, since then.
Helen opened its first beauty salon on the Upper West Side in 2007 and quickly grew in popularity.
It now has more than 50 locations nationwide, including Los Angeles.
We spoke with the owner of Helen to learn more about how she got to the point where she started her own beauty salon.
What’s the story behind Helen?
Helen was born to two sisters, who moved to New York City from Texas in the 1950s.
As a child, she loved going to Disneyland, and as an adult, she had the privilege of working as a makeup artist.
She became interested in beauty and decided to start her own salon in New York.
She was the first in her family to go to school, and she had a vision that her salon would one day open in New Orleans.
How did you get started in the beauty industry?
I was working in a beauty parlor in New Jersey at the time.
It was like the other beauty parlors, we had to wear makeup and we had the whole deal of being a makeup person.
I was the one in the back, and there were four other people in the front.
There was no makeup, no line.
I had this passion for makeup.
I wore it as much as I could, and I loved to wear it.
I also wanted to be able to wear the best makeup I could wear.
So I decided to open my own salon, because I knew that I had to do that.
The salon was one of those places where you could make money, and the money was great.
I knew I was going to have to make some money as well.
So, I was thinking about what I was doing, what I would need to buy, and what my hours would be.
I wanted to make sure that my salon would be successful.
How did you open the doors?
I did the makeup.
We had a very, very expensive line.
And when I was first getting the makeup, I asked my sister, “Mom, are you okay with doing that?”
And she said, “Oh, yeah, I like it.”
She was not a makeup expert, but she knew how to do it.
She did it.
It wasn’t a big investment, and it wasn’t like I was just buying the products.
She would make me the best ingredients, and then I would do my own things, and that’s how I made money.
Do you think that you’ll ever open a second salon?
I hope so.
I don’t know if there’s ever going to be a second location.
I’ve had my eye on that spot.
I just don’t think I can do that at this point.
I’m just so busy with other things.
I don’t really have any regrets about opening my own beauty store.
I would never do anything else.
But I did it for a reason, because it was the best way to make money.
I had a lot of success and I had all of my family.
I love my family, and they’re my biggest fans.
I’ve always wanted to open a salon in LA, but I never had the chance.
I hope that I can open one someday.
What were the challenges in opening a beauty salon?
There were challenges, but they weren’t too great.
I got my start as a waitress.
And then I got to work with people who were really talented.
We were able to hire the best talent, and we started out doing a lot more than just makeup.
It turned out to be more than that.
And I think it paid off.
When you opened the doors, did you know the type of customers you were going to attract?
We knew that we had a strong client base, and so we just went out and did our best to get the best people that we could.
We wanted to attract people that would be loyal.
And that meant that we hired the best, the best stylists and makeup artists.
I think that we were able as a business to have a loyal client base.
When we opened the first place, there was a lot less turnover, and people were kind of hanging out at Helens.
You had a great time there.
What’s your favorite part about the salon?
The fact that people are willing to spend their money.
They were really patient.
They just wanted to spend.
And it’s not just makeup, they wanted to have fun.
We have a good time.
We are all working on our personal lives, and this is our own little thing.
We love doing it.
We really enjoy it.
