Jenny Colclasure is going for it.
Colclasure is using her love of doing people's hair with her passion to make them happy as the driving force to open Bobby J's Hair Studio at 810 Moeller St. in Prescott.
"I felt like it was a risk worth taking," she said.
It was March when Colclasure opened her studio, which is just north of Yavapai College - after thinking about it for just two weeks.
"It was literally a wild hair one day," she said. "Once I started thinking about it, I just went off."
The studio is where Colclasure and a couple of other stylists work daily to make their customers happy.
Colclasure said she has a full-service salon where people can get manicures, facials, waxing and haircuts, and a new esthetician is set to work a couple of days a week at the studio.
"We focus on anybody that comes in here," she said. "We want to appeal to everyone."
Haircuts start at $10 for children, $15 for men and $25 for women, according to Colclasure, who said cuts include shampoo and blow dry.
The studio is also an outlet for Colclasure to pursue her love of coloring hair that took root about five years ago.
Colclasure began doing her friends' and mother's hair and began thinking about owning her own studio.
She went to work at a local salon before cutting her new career path.
"It's an art form, making somebody feel beautiful," she said.
The salon is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and walk-ins are welcome, too. For information, call 778-2579.
