Metro Nashville’s first Black-owned beauty supply store, Roots Hair & Beauty, opened its doors March 1 in a Madison strip mall.
During the store’s grand opening, hundreds of customers braved frigid temperatures to stand in line and show their support helping them to generate an estimated $50,000 in sales or more in just one day.
The store’s owner, Sam Tisdale, said, “We are proud to be the first, and hopefully we won’t be the last. We are thankful to have a lot of support from the community.”
Roots specializes in all categories in beauty supply like 100-percent human hair bundles, quick weaves, branded hair weaves, crochet braiding, natural hair products, and much more.
According to its websitewww.rootsbeautysupply.com, the company’s goal is to provide its customers with the best quality at the lowest price with outstanding customer service!
The company already has two successful locations in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Tisdale said he is very happy about the local support that the store is receiving in Nashville.
“Roots has more meaning than hair roots,” Tisdale told News Channel 5. “It also means Roots for our heritage and roots for our community.
Roots Hair & Beauty is located at 816 Madison Square in Madison, Tennessee.
