We recently welcomed Creationz Hair Studio to the Chamber and helped them celebrate their grand opening with a ribbon cutting. Located at 628 S. McClelland St., the salon offers mens’ and womens’ haircuts and styles.
Owner Jerry Garcia-Pacheo says he started doing hair when family members didn’t want to pay for haircuts, and he’d volunteer to cut it for them. “I’ve been doing hair since I was in junior high, about 12 years now,” he said. He has been a licensed hair dresser for close to four years now.
Garcia-Pacheo he’s excited to open his own business here in Santa Maria. “I’m excited to have my own business and be my own boss,” he explained.
Currently, Garcia-Pacheo has two other hairdressers that work in the studio with him. He plans to have a manicurist and an additional three stylists in the future.
“We’re planning to do a full service – from extensions, highlights, pedicures, manicures, tints, haircuts, just everything,” he said. “Eventually I’d also like to offer skincare.”
Garcia-Pacheo says his goal is to have a salon with a friendly environment where people feel welcome. “I treat my clients like friends, and I really want them to feel comfortable when they come to Creationz Hair Studio,” he said. “I want the salon to look nice but not too fancy because I want it to be an environment where people feel welcome.”
Garcia-Pacheo chose to open his business in Santa Maria because he wanted to give back to the local community. “Growing up, my family was low income and the city gave back a lot ot us,” he said. “I’m really hoping that I can do the same for people by having my salon here.”
Garcia-Pacheo says his favorite part of his job is the creativity he has being a hair stylist, and being able to meet and interact with different people.
“I love all the different types of people I meet, and just being able to make people feel good about themselves through cutting hair,” he said. “I really love what I do.”
Creationz hair Studio is located at 628 S. McClelland St. in Santa Maria, and open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The studio does allow walk-ins if a stylist is available.
