Fierce Vixens Glam Bar opened in April on W. Michigan Ave. in Ypsilanti offering services ranging from hair extensions to teeth whitening.
"My friend has a Detroit-based hair boutique and I had hair salon," says Litrece Walker, who owns Fierce Vixens Glam Bar with partner Shawn McCoy. "We wanted to expand, so we combined our businesses."
Fierce Vixens Glam Bar is an extension of Detroit Make Me Fierce
, which attracted so many clients from the Ypsilanti area, it was an obvious place for the business to grow.
"We have a lot of clients who travel form Ypsilanti to Detroit to get their hair done," Walker says. "We wanted to make it more convenient for them, and we like that the location is close to the college."
The 1,400 square foot Glam Bar also includes makeup services, hair color and barber services. On the weekends, the women offer their clients cocktails and finger food and promote specials for college students. The business currently employs four staff members as well as the two owners.
