Beauty Center has been in downtown Dayton, Ohio since December 21, 1999. Owner,
Valeria Perry and her staff offer a full service hair salon and day spa designed
to soothe and relax each client.
The outstanding support and continuous encouragement received from the City of
Dayton and the Downtown Dayton Partnership have been a very important part of
this 12-year journey.
Ms Perry's personal vision has become the mission of the entire staff...expand
and develop others pursuing a career in this industry and ultimately making a
difference in our community. The bottom line is GROWTH... every day, every
month, every year.
In pursuit of the vision, Valeria's has partnered with the Ponitz Career Center (formerly Patterson Career Center) to give graduating cosmetology students the
opportunity to gain experience and build a clientele. We also actively recruit
graduating students from the area beauty and business schools.
Valeria's participation in the Montgomery County Youthworks summer program
giving teens jobs for the summer and a very valuable learning tool to prepare
them for their futures and life in general. Our participation in this program
started the summer of 2003 and continues today.
Focusing on growth, Ms Perry offered business opportunities in the lobby of the
Salon to Purse-snikkety and Stuff, Georgia Alexander, owner; and Home Sweet Home
Gift Baskets and Balloons, Yvonne Hall, owner. The result of this opportunity is
that both businesses achieved much success, thanks in part to her
continued focus and a willingness to help others.
