about us

Glamour Salon was founded by Victoria “Vicky” Johnson in 1994. After 25 years of booth rentals, Victoria was encouraged by her pastors, Bishop Andrew & Viveca Merritt, to walk by faith and trust God to help her own a beauty salon. Vicky and her staff bring over 30 years of cosmetology experience, including training at leading cosmetology institutions: Virginia Farrell, Black Hair Is, Glemby International, and Dudley Hair Care University. The salon grew steadily until November 4, 2008, when Vicky purchased the current home of Glamour Salon, 28801 Southfield Rd., Lathrup Village, Michigan. The new building enabled Glamour Salon to provide enhanced professional services, community service, as well as new opportunities for other small businesses. Future plans include, national and global expansion, and franchise opportunities.

Loving God. Loving People.
