Anisha’s career began in 1994 after the birth of her second daughter. As a single mother Anisha did not want to have to worry about relying on someone else for the care and health of her daughters hair, so she began her educational journey in cosmetology. There is a well-known saying that says, “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.” Anisha found this to be true early in her training and knew she’d found her passion and was excited about her future ahead in the hair industry.
Anisha received her cosmetology license from the state of New York and took her first job in a small privately owned salon where she took the time to build and perfect her skills. From there she transitioned into a salon in the downtown area of Poughkeepsie, NY where she built a large clientele that she serviced for over 10 years.
In 2002 Anisha left the state of New York and relocated to Baltimore, MD, but initially faced some challenges with establishing a salon in this metropolitan area. Anisha didn’t take these challenges as an end to her dreams and aspirations, but recognized that sometimes the path that we set out on simply has a detour. Hearing that there were not many good stylist in the West Virginia area, Anisha decided to relocate from Baltimore, MD to Martinsburg, WV. There she found a beauty supply store that was building a salon in the backroom and that is where Anisha’s career shifted from stellar stylist into an entrepreneurial success as the salon founder and owner of A Class Hair Studio.
This hot and trending salon was located in Martinsburg, WV for 8 years before relocating to Hagerstown, MD. Now in Hagerstown, Anisha re-opened A Class Hair Studio in the downtown area and was there for 3 years before expanding into its current location inside the Valley Mall in January 2020. This move allowed Anisha to fulfill a lifelong dream to take her salon to the next level and launch A Class Hair Studio & Barbers, a full service unisex salon and barber shop.
Anisha is grateful to her clients who have stuck with through the years as her career has developed and blossomed. It speaks volumes when customers are traveling from different states, New York & West Virginia, to continue their services with Anisha. Her customer loyalty has fueled the confidence needed to take this next step onto a bigger platform. She is excited about this next chapter in her life and is looking forward to meeting many new clients and helping them to look their best and shine!
