BUSINESS SUCCESS STORIES

Shear Serenity Salon

At Shear Serenity Salon, Melissa Borgen offers hair care, massage and waxing services. Shear Serenity is home to six stylists, each of whom use a work station created by Borgen. Individual rooms for massage therapists, estheticians, and nail technicians are also available for rent. As of 2017, two independent stylists lease from Borgen.

But in order to establish Shear Serenity as a local business, Borgen needed some help. She found it at the Western Dairyland Women's Business Center, where a Business Development Specialist appraised the numbers and weighed the benefits of Borgen buying a salon versus starting one of her own. Ultimately, it was decided that she would start her own business, and so began the formation of her business plan.

Subsequent one-on-one meetings and a business plan workshop aided Borgen in getting Shear Serenity off the ground. The Women's Business Center also helped get Borgen’s name out there, obtain a sales tax ID and receive an establishment license.

At Shear Serenity, Borgen continues to expand her services and works hard to improve customer satisfaction.
