Arcaro Boxing, which is training Olympic hopeful Jen Hamann, has started a series of profiles of local sponsors. Recently, they profiled Kismet Salon at 34th and Spring in Madrona:
1. What prompted you to start your own business?
I started Kismet Salon after I adopted my eldest daughter and was pregnant with my second. I needed a place to work when I came back from maternity leave. I thought owning my own business would provide me a stable place to work and flexibility I would need with two small children. I think I probably had always thought about owning my own place when the timing and need coincided. One could say destiny or fate, I might just say Kismet.
2. What is your favorite thing about Kismet Salon?
My favorite thing about Kismet Salon is that we are a friendly neighborhood salon and that our clients will just stop in to say hello when they are walking by.
