However, none of the titles accurately represent who Monica Moore truly is; a dependable and genuine person who understands the value of living right by treating others with honesty and compassion.

When the perfect time arrived we ventured out and here we will are,” she says.

She also does weaves and different types of braids. Her main focus is healthy hair and making sure her clients take care of their hair in between services.
Moore didn’t make to the level of success she has experienced without the help of others within her industry. “My she-ro’s in the beauty industry has impacted me tremendously. Not only have they been a major force during my 20 plus years of professional styling, but so have my clients. Because of all the people I have had the pleasure of servicing over the years, I’ve become humble and eternally grateful to be able to use my gift,” she says.

The bond and the trust between the Moore and her clients has helped her to be aware of how much trust God has put in her hands. Her clients believe in her and trust Moore with more than just their hair. Because of that, it has strengthen her relationship with God, as she better understands how He is working through her. “It’s funny how I’m licensed as a cosmetologist but I do the work of many professions. It’s made me more mature as a stylist and as a woman,” she says.

Her inspirations are her mother who shows nothing but strength, courage, and faith. She also finds strength in her grandmother who taught her how to love. When nothing else seems right, Moore says she can always find resolve in her children Genesis and Jalen who, without any words, taught her how to never give up. She also credits Billy Moore for teaching her how to conquer her fears and to take charge over any situation.

Moore says what she loves most about her business is the intimacy. “We are a small salon which works for us in a big way. Many of our clients look for peace and relaxation in the salon and 3rd Girl and Moore Styling Studio provides that. We customize our schedule to meet everyone’s needs. If a client needs a 4:00 am appointment or a 9:00p.m. appointment, we make it happen. If a client needs a Sunday or Monday appointment we can do that too. In this industry it’s a must to make yourself available without becoming overwhelmed or neglecting your priorities,” she says.

They will also offer classes for their clients so they can learn how to take care of their hair in between visits to the salon.
