Trans business owner continues to help create space for everyone with her hair salon and hair salon

“It was just me, a chair and a tool bench here when I opened the shop back then. Now we have me, two other stylists, a beautician and stuff all over here that reflects my personality now, and I love it.”

News of the company spread across different platforms, including Trans Northland, leading one customer to try something different.

“So I’ve been to a lot of salons where I’ve tried to cut my hair really short, and they said it’s not a feminine cutie. So the first time I came here , Bee told me it’s about the hair , not about the gender , not about the person , it’s about the hair We cut the hair , it made me feel very comfortable to be myself and allowed her to have the freedom to do so,” Superior’s Kristi Moos explained.

When Golding came out on social platform Deep Cuts, she thought it might affect her business, but the reaction was the opposite.

“I was really nervous about it because in hair salons it doesn’t really go well. So, I was like, I just take the bandage off, and I see what happens, and I do a post that tells people this is who I am Being trans doesn’t make my tongs fall out of my hands, it doesn’t affect how my razor works, it doesn’t affect how I cut your hair; take do it or leave it essential. And luckily, Duluth is a really cool place, and people have been really supportive of it, and I really appreciate it and always will be.

For Golding, looking back at how far she’s come is a moment to “reflect on where I started, honestly; it really comes down to immense gratitude for this community and the people in it. They made me feel so at home.”

“I want everyone to feel welcome here! Not just people from this community; I want everyone to feel welcome here.
