Cyd Smitherman took the Virginia State Board Exam of Barbers and Cosmetology back in 1989. She received her license in 1989 shortly after taking the exam. She attended St. Paul's college from 1989 to 1993 for Business Administration with a concentration in Management. There she learned how to start a business and be successful. On campus she became the first and only licensed stylist where the students could come and get their hair done on the campus property. Her name and reputation for great work spread quickly throughout the campus. Her clientele consisted of not only students but faculty and staff as well.
Cyd's hobby is working with the youth in local churches in Herndon Virginia, where she has a ministry called Divine Expression. This is a mime ministry that ministers to local church functions, through liturgical dance and body expressions through song. In 2004, Cyd planned, choreographed, and directed a successful mime concert of nine mimes which through mime interpretation, "told the story of Jesus!" She continues to get offers from churches asking her to come to their church functions to minister. She continues to glorify God which in turn, God continues to grow her ministry and salon!
I started working in my first salon back in 1994, in a salon called Mainstreet. I was a shampoo assistant and from there I realized taking care of hair was what I wanted to do! I worked 17 years at Shear Action located in Herndon and now I have relocated to Simply Heaven where I can continue my love for hair!
