MEET THE OWNER

 

Kali is a super entrepreneur from Inkster, Michigan. She’s the owner of 3 Pressbar salons, Dream Salon Suites, a natural skin care line and is in the process of creating her own hair product line. Her salons are located in Gwinnett County, Georgia. Approximately 25 minutes north of Atlanta.

 

Kali’s success wasn’t given to her. She had to grind hard for what she wanted. She started braiding at nine years old. Years later, her braiding skills opened the door to style for celebrities like Dwele, Rip Hamilton, Trey Songz and Raheem Davaughn, just to name a few. In 2006, at 23 years old, she opened her first salon with partners called, Kali’s Salounge in Novi, Michigan. Her salon offered hair, nail, massage and barbering services in a lounge type atmosphere. This venture was too large for Kali to handle at that tender age so she left her salon to a sibling and relocated.

 

Summer 2019, Kali packed up and moved to Atlanta with her belongings, puppy and no plan or direction for her future. She just wanted a fresh, new start and Georgia was on her mind! After some trial and error, she decided to get more training and enrolled in Master Cosmetology program at Paul Mitchell the School Atlanta in 2011. Kali was the first to complete the required hours in her core and she graduated with honors. From this point she opened Kali’s Hair Studio and Virgin hair store in 2013 in Duluth, Ga. But, Kali had a vision for more. She opened her second location called Pressbar in Lawrenceville, Ga in 2016 and Dream Salon Suites in 2017. This still wasn’t enough for Kali. She felt it was time for the industry to see a change in how African American salons were depicted and if no one else would do it, it was her duty to make it happen!

 

Her vision was to provide great customer service in a timely manner at an affordable price without booking fees. At this time, the new Pressbars were born! She closed her Duluth and Lawrenceville locations to focus on rebranding. In 2019 she opened Pressbar Salons in Suwanee and Lawrenceville Georgia. In 2020 she opened her third Pressbar in Duluth Georgia. Pressbar salons also have memberships where clients receive services at a discounted rate for a monthly fee.

 

Kali’s goal is for the Pressbar Brand to be available nationwide. She plans to open the door for franchising in 2020. Please stay tuned into Kali and watch this legend continue to be legendary.
