Sarah Brown has owned her styling business for five years. She has been designing and playing with hair since she was 15 years old, often experimenting on her own hair.

Brown's mother, Darlene, originally did not approve of this enterprise. "She wanted me to go to college, but I didn't end up making it to college. So when I told her I was going to hair school she was like that was good too," Brown said.

Brandy Mizner-Klearman has been coming to Rumors for three years. The salon is open Tuesday through Sunday but sees most of its traffic on Fridays and Saturdays.

Learning to run a successful business
