It's a good place to start a business. Talk to Jennifer and Ethan, they can help you," said Scalp. He likes the freedom of running his own business. If you have a picture of a haircut you want to try then, Scalp says bring it in and he'll do his best to get it right.
He wants to promote the community and do his best to become part of it.
