Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NORWALK, Conn. - Feb 03, 2017 - Yaffa Beauty by Rica opens its doors officially Monday, February 6 at 5pm with a Grand Opening Open House Celebration. Open to the public, Owner Rica Mendes will host refreshments, a raffle and more fun at Yaffa Beauty by Rica, 515 West Avenue, Salons by JC Suite #32, Norwalk, CT!
“I know clients and friends were surprised by this move,” Mendes explains, “and it seems spontaneous, but the reality is that I’ve been planning this since the day I was assigned the task of putting together a business plan in cosmetology school.” Mendes, a graduate of the Paul Mitchell School of Danbury, was a part of Phase 2, the high honors program, and attended Caper, the Paul Mitchell School’s equivalent to The Gathering, a 3-day intensive workshop and showcase. Labelled a “visionary” by instructors, cosmetology is Mendes’ second career.
Prior to this, Mendes was a Project Manager and Web Marketing Director in the corporate world. But, after layoffs and challenges finding appropriate work, Mendes realized that a change was overdue.
“I had gone to school with the intent on having a career in the arts. Even when my heart was ‘into’ the work I was doing, I still did not feel fulfilled. I needed to do something creative. With my background in Mary Kay Cosmetics, I knew that the beauty industry was recession-proof, so I decided to finally get my license.”
The Open House and Reception will begin at 5pm. A raffle will be held, and proceeds will benefit LIVESTRONG. Additionally, special offers and deals will be available to attendees.
