Our Betty of the Week is Lia Hakim, the founder of @hottblowdry, @totallyhottsalon, & @hottlash! We instantly connected four years ago at the @highperformancesalon Academy. I love her no-nonsense approach to business and her ability to see things in a positive light. I have asked her many questions about my salon company; she always has the best advice. Thank you for inspiring me and elevating the salon industry!...

This Betty of the Week hits close to my heart. Why? Because it’s my niece Caryse Morrison, aka @carysemorrison; she started working at our @UrbanBettySalon flagship location in August of 2022! We always joked that she would move to Austin one day and work at Urban Betty and to see it actually manifest is a dream for me. Unfortunately, she doesn’t wish to inherit the business (which I understand); she has dedicated her future to helping...
