Since her marriage, Davis has returned to school and obtained her real estate license. She works as an agent for Keller-Williams Realty in New Bern.
She is now also the owner of Glamourzon Studio & Events located at 1918 Dr. MLK Jr. Blvd.
The new business will be a consignment shop where they will sell the owner’s goods and they will receive a percentage of the sale. It accepts new and slightly used clothes, shoes, accessories.
Davis also has a salon where she works her magic on her clients’ hair giving them the latest styles and trends. She also provides Bye Bye Belly consultations and sells the popular weight loss drink.
“I am trying little by little to withdraw from the hairdressing sector but I would like to offer my gift to others and I wanted to start with the young people”. Davis said. “Hairdressers can be expensive and many parents can’t afford them, especially with things as they are today due to COVID.”
Davis says she plans to offer workshops to young people aged 5 to 19 where she will teach basics such as hair braiding and styles and techniques and nail care. Each participant will receive their own equipment and products to use during the workshops. At the end of the day, students will run a hair salon for parents to see what they have learned.
The building will also be available for rental of events such as weddings, showers, private parties, etc. Davis can provide event planning as well as decorations.
Finally, the workshop houses a bakery. Bri’s Sweet Treats, owned by Briana Boyd, will be on site daily with freshly baked cakes, cupcakes, cookies, cheesecakes and other goodies.
“I really wasn’t looking for a building that big,” Davis said. “It took me a minute to figure out what I was going to do with all this space.
She understood this and continues to come up with ideas to make her business a vital part of the community.
