Women in Business…Mariam Allen: Born for the beauty business
Mariam Allen is not one to hide her light under a bushel. She believes that she was “born for the beauty business” and that her Lime street Beauty Salon has the capacity to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary. Not that she is necessarily making a rash assertion. She has been in hairdressing and cosmetology sector for twenty four years.
She took to makeup as a child. Dressing up was her way of expressing herself. Inevitably, she began practicing her skills on a few friends and relatives before launching into the enterprise on her own. Her formal training in cosmetology was done in Trinidad and Tobago. It was there too that she was chosen by Sasha Cosmetics as their representative make-up artist in Guyana. After Trinidad and Tobago she completed a hair dressing course in Grenada.
