Biz Spotlight: DeJuan Burns, Founder of Salon DeJuan
Salon DeJuan is a full service, mobile salon based in Temple Hills, Maryland. Founder DeJuan Burns was inspired to start the salon, because she wanted to help others to find their maximum beauty.
More Than Just a Salon
Burns makes it easy for clients to use her services. Her business is more than just a salon. She says, “I offer a one stop shop. I have my brand of hair care products featured in stores. I [also] offer the best virgin hair in town.” Not only does she have a physical location, she can meet her clients where they are, with her mobile salon.
For Burns, it is important that her customers know how to take care of their tresses, in between their visits to her. As a business owner, she loves the flexibility of setting her own hours, so that she can cater to each of clients’ individual needs.
The Ups, The Downs and Staying Positive Through It All
As other business owners would agree, owning your own business has its ups and downs. Burns shares, “Building the franchise mobile salon and partnering with the biggest beauty store in the area,” has been the greatest success for her so far. However, finding the right location to expand into and finding stylists who share her passion has been difficult.
She doesn’t let it deter her, though. Her faith in God and the support of her parents help her to stay on track. Meanwhile, her favorite quote by author R.S. Grey, keeps her positive, “She believed she could, so she did.”
Offering a bit of her own advice, she urges aspiring business owners to, “Keep working hard.” With 15 years in the game, Burns knows that much of any business owner’s success comes from having that type of persistence.
