Denise Striblin, a Greensboro native says that an early age she always had a love for hair, makeup and fashion. It only seemed right that she became a Cosmetologist. With 20 years of experience in the hair care industry and specializing in weaving and cutting, she feels that she has finally found her sweet spot. Even though it’s hard at times being a business owner, her endurance, perseverance, tenacity, and unwavering trust in God has paid off in owning a successful business. She continues to further her knowledge and skills by attending effective trainings, hair care events, hair shows, and advancement classes. Striblin believes the more she learns, the more she becomes the “prototype” stylist and business owner.

Denise believes that being a stylist provides the opportunity for her to release her artistic and creative side. With that said, her ultimate goal is always to make sure every client has healthy hair and is satisfied with every visit. At the salon she says “we are family-oriented and closely knit, giving our clients a welcoming atmosphere, where they can all feel comfortable and at home”. One of her highest goal is to make sure that she passes on her knowledge and hair care wisdom to other stylists to help strengthen and develop them. Although Striblin has been successful in running her own business, she also understands the importance of supporting others in their endeavors and charity work.

Many of the stylist at Excellent Styles have personal businesses of their own and she enjoys supporting and encouraging them. Once a month they host a “Pop-Up Store”. A Pop-Up Store is where the stylist are able to showcase their other businesses through selling of goods such as Candy Apples, Cupcakes and much more. It allows them the opportunity to build their personal business as well as gives the clients and others the opportunity to shop and enjoy. Striblin says “I would not change anything for my journey because it has made me the person that I am today.”
