GRAND JUNCTION, Colo.- When Jasmine Lyons got her cosmetology license, she was not taught how to style ethnic hair and kinky textures. She also noticed that there wasn’t a place for black girls to get their hair done in Grand Valley.
The Lyons Den was born to change that.
“We needed someone who at least know what they’re doing in ethnic hair, so we don’t have all the beautiful black girls in this community just struggling with their hair,” Jasmine Lyons elaborates, “The services I offer are box braids, crochet, twists, and dreads; and I also do haircuts and color.”
The Lyons Den doesn’t want anyone who enters leave unsatisfied, so each client gets one-on-one attention to receive desired results.
“On top of Jasmine’s experience with all hair textures, she also uses her black girl magic to help yours truly look good,” Cora Dickey shares.
For the Black community, having extensions doesn’t mean that you’re bald. It’s a protective style for the natural hair to grow and stay healthy.
Clients feel a sense of peace knowing they can get their hair done in town, rather than driving to bigger cities.
“It’s definitely more comfortable because I know my hair won’t get ruined,” AJ Gassaway reflects, “’cause she knows how to work with it and knows, kinda, what I want and what I wanna know from my hair, when I get my hair done, when I ask questions on how to take better care of it.”
The Lyons Den is able to do hair of all textures for people of all skin colors. Appointments can be made with more information at thelyonsdengj.com
