Salons across America are venturing into territories never before seen. From dyes to dreads and bobs to braids, salons of the 21st century go far beyond the cut-and-curl beauty parlors of our grandparents’ age, and with that change have come a remaking of the salon model itself.

Atlanta’s Mychel “Snoop” Dillard, a self-described “serial entrepreneur,” plans to cash in on changes in the highly profitable beauty industry by offering franchises for her Remedy Salon Suites. Her company is seeking qualified people interested in buying into her salon model, one that leases suites to beauty professionals and offers semi-absentee ownership for franchisees in cities across the United States.
