Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan La Fave.
Megan, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was 21 when I opened my business in 2000. I wanted to be my own boss and do what I absolutely love to do every day. Hair. I am with people all day and I love all my clients. I knew if at 21 I could be my own boss it would be in a cute little boutique salon in Old Poway. JoJo comes from my middle name Josephine, everyone always asks where it comes from, and why not name your business after the boss.
Has it been a smooth road?
I started at a very young age and telling people twice your age what to do wasn’t always easy. When I opened this salon, there were not a whole lot of foot traffic so I had to hustle and do a lot of foot work getting my name out there.
Technology has been a getting used to but I now am twice the age of the girls who work for me and they help. Learning social media and online advertising along with booking and communication.
I think in the last 17 years I have learned something new every day.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the JoJo’s Hair Salon story. Tell us more about the business.
We are a huge part of community, we donate to the local high school and Elementary across the street. We get our name out there by using all the small businesses in Poway. I love doing hair and I feel like every one of my clients is close to my heart after all the time I spend with them. We specialize in customer service and great hair. We are a full-service salon and are always changing to keep up with the fast-moving times.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I want to one day retire and have someone special inherit the salon and keep it going and growing the same way, I have for the last 17 years.
