At the beginning, this was not my vision but once I got started I just could not stop. I searched for a space for about a week before I committed to this Encino location. I was almost located in Van Nuys which that space was a lot smaller than you could ever imagine. I had envisioned only having two chairs at first, but I was fortunate to find a bigger space, so here I go having to double my orders. This definitely did not go well with my silent partner (my significant other LOL). What he did not know is that I always over budget to meet my actual budget, it was a win win for me.
When I committed to this space it was sooooo plain, I was already stressed. I started with the wall which I struggled with for exactly three days of different ideas until I broke down and started sticking crap to the wall. I needed everything to match my pictures, mirrors and chairs I had already ordered. I am usually a Walmart kind of gal but Target saved my life during this journey! Thank you Target for my inexpensive wall. It was easy for me to install but just more tedious than you would imagine but it turned out great! The stick and peel wall paper gave the space a completely different feeling immediately. Everything else just fell into place, majority of everything came from Amazon (My go too), Etsy (All my pictures), Custom Graphics (all my decals) and some of my salon equipment came form salon guys (easy ordering). I am so in love with The Urban Meet, I put my all into this brand, establishment and its all mines from beginning to end. I want my old, present and new clients to be able to experience this extraordinary vibe. Come visit us at 17420 Ventura Blvd, Suite 204, Encino CA 91316 The Urban Meet Braid Shop Welcomes You!
