The LaTresha Rená Salon and Spa, 1032 S. Linden Road, Suite B, Flint Township celebrated a grand opening at the end of November.
It took a long trip to be able to celebrate the celebration due to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic that forced some businesses to close and the strict guidelines that followed.
Salon and spa owner LaTresha Reed told MLive-The Flint Journal that the company offers a full line of hair, skin and nail treatments.
“I wanted it to be a one-stop-shop so that whoever they need doesn’t have to go to multiple locations to be served that way,” Reed said. .
Customers with different hair types can get hair care services such as hair extensions including bands, micro ties, micro beads, stitching, seamless braids, wigs, and customizations.

Nail services include manicures, pedicures, paraffin wax, acrylic replacement gel nails, and acrylic nails.
Skin care offerings range from customizable facials to microblading, eyebrow tinting, waxing, eyelash and brow lamination, and cryoskin.

Reed decorated the space to bring feelings of joy and relaxation with inspirational messages, as well as accents and greenery in black, white, and gold.
“The customer should always feel like it’s Disney World every time they walk in and that they’re a celebrity,” Reed said. “Not only is it a relaxing atmosphere, but it brings a lot of joy.”
The company only takes clients by appointment.
“It has a very luxurious feel and often I will hear from customers that it doesn’t seem like it should be here,” Reed said. “Looks like it should be somewhere in New York or Chicago. They can come in and have that spa-cation feeling when they walk through the door.
Reed, a licensed cosmetologist, signed the lease for her company’s space in February 2020 around the onset of the pandemic, which impacted the progress of projects in the space as well as the timing of the pandemic. opening.
The businesswoman took matters into her own hands learning how to lay flooring, build her own office and paint among several other tasks.
Some of the family, including her father, also helped.
“I just didn’t want when things could reopen, I would start the process over with offers again, because their prices could have changed or whatever,” Reed said. “So I had to be that person. I had to do everything.
Despite the obstacles Reed faced in reaching her goal, she overcame them and officially opened in October 2020.
However, plans for a grand opening were initially shelved because Reed believed the momentum for new business was simply not there.
But his thoughts have changed.
“Everything about this pandemic hasn’t been normal, so why wouldn’t I have my grand opening yet,” Reed explained. “I’ve put all of that work into this building along with building a customer experience and the employees too. So I was as if the company deserved it.
Within her company, Reed’s mission is not only to serve her clients, but also to fill a gap in the beauty industry when it comes to beauty professionals.
“All the other establishments are more career-oriented than when it comes to the beauty industry, it’s like you’re a hairdresser, a beautician, but that’s because nobody ever has. took the time to care about our peers to say let me build something for us, let me make it a career, ”Reed said. “Whether it is that they can have a salary, that they can have a 401K, that they can have a pension plan, that there are all these different things.”
Reed plans to bridge the gap in opportunities that are traditionally offered in other industries.
“What if there was a company that took the time to bring them to other industries so that we could increase that morale which would then increase the customer experience, which in turn would increase professional morale? average beauty, which would increase their service and everything would impact each other, ultimately impacting the economy of an individual, a city and the beauty industry in general, ”asked Reed.
