Donna Peace has been in the business of styling hair beautiful as a licensed cosmetologist for over 22 years. Known for her short and Sassy Style expertise, Donna is the owner of Hairsignatures, a salon located in Raleigh North Carolina.

Born in Alexandria Virginia, Donna was raised in Norlina, N.C. She is the daughter of Shirley and Robert Peace Sr. and the mother of three children, Rashard, Jazmyme and Kori.

She attended Vance Granville Community College and received a degree in Cosmetology. She has won numerous accolades for her creativity in hair throughout her career. She is a Hair Styling Coach and doesn’t mind taking on the role of helping other fellow stylist bring their hairstyling game to a polished look. She is also a educator and a woman of God.

Hairsignatures offers various services such as Shampoo and Styles, Relaxers, Coloring, Weaves and other Signature services. “Hair has been my passion from a very young age. I would style family members, classmates and friends hair which helped me learn how to master my craft,” she says.

Donna first started working in a local salon in her hometown of Norlina, then decided to take her career to another level and move to Raleigh. She worked in several salons in Raleigh and then later opened her own salon, Hiarsignatures.

“Making my clients look and feel their best is my personal bonus to being in the Beauty Industry. When a woman gets her hair done, her confidence is at its highest. So being able to make my clients feel good from the inside out brings my heart joy. I love putting smiles on my clients faces,” says Donna. “I feel that my purpose in life is to uplift others. Whether it be with a hairstyle or words of encouragement.”

There is a lot more that takes place within the walls of a hair salon. Besides interesting conversations and laughter, there are moments where many individuals bond and comfort each other. Because of some of her life experiences, Donna says she is sensitive to healing the matters of the heart. That’s why it is so important for her to be a listening ear and encourager to her clients.

Donna says her mother has been the greatest influence in her life. She was her biggest cheerleader and always encouraged her to put God first and never give up on what she wanted to do in life.

Carolyn Marshall Covington impacted her career. “She was my first example of a successfull salon and business owner,” says Donna. When she first moved to Raleigh, Carolyn gave Donna her first job at her salon, Inflights, which was a very popular salon in Raleigh. She later became Donna’s mentor and helped to shape her into eventually being a business owner as well.

Dr. Jeffery Chapman Sr. of Raleigh North Christian Center is credited with influencing Donna’s spiritual life. “Hearing him preach the word of God has kept me motivated and determined. A sermon he preached “How Bad Do You Want To See Change” rang in my ear daily. Change is definitely on the horizon for me and the vision is clear as to what my next level is,” she says.

Her future plans are to open a new salon with a new and vibrant styling team that will help to duplicate her talent. While she shares some of her trade secrets, Donna believes they will be well prepared. “We will cater to the needs of women far and near. Where they can enjoy an atmosphere of style, class and inspiration. Habakkuk 2:2-3.
