About Backwoods Beauty
Backwoods Beauty was started in 2012 by owner Alycia Smith, who took an old video store and turned it into a one-woman salon in the "middle of nowhere". People doubted her vision because of the location and her young age, but soon learned that with the right atmosphere, customer service, and skill; a business can thrive. For the first couple of years Alycia worked long and grueling hours to grow her clientele. She attended workshops and continued her training to become the talented and sought-after hair and makeup artist that she is today. Her hard work has paid off, as five years later she is booked solid and now has a team made up of another stylist, two estheticians, a tattoo artist and an acupuncturist. The salon recently underwent a major expansion to make room for her growing and successful business.
