I,Cindy Beresford Owner/Licensed Natural Hair Specialist have been a leading industry expert in the field of natural hair care in West Michigan for 9 years. Located in a suite since 2012, Its now time to expand, bring on other natural stylists and create a well known space in GR catering to natural hair. The Rise will be the FIRST of its kind.


All Women of different cultures with textured hair.  Mainly women in West Michigan. Mindsets and hearts change when you embrace your hair as God designed it to be. Ive seen women of all ages open up and discover their authentic selves all because of embracing there hair. Its a gateway to a greater way of life, self love and self acceptance. West Michigan deserves this knowledge, not only larger cities. Women such as myself travel to NY/Cali for education. The Rise will offer that here.

What I Will Do With $5,000

I will save at least $1000 for an emergency fund for my business account. I will use the money to stock up on Retail and salon product needed. I am now looking to move into a new larger salon location, i will need all new salon equipment, furniture and tools. That is what i would use the money for.
