Doris Williams has been making women beautiful for 50 years and wants West Point to celebrate this milestone with her. She is having an Open House, Sunday, November 25, from 2 â€“ 5 p.m. at Lady Doris Salon of Beauty, 110 E. Main St. in the downtown district of West Point.
Williams graduated in 1962, from Jetty's Beauty School, historically located on Fifth St. She spent her formative years perfecting her craft under the loving and skillful guidance of the late Corine King at Madame King's Hair Fashions of Chicago, Illinois. King was the beloved cousin of Williams.
Williams returned to Mississippi, from from Illinois, in 1979. She then opened Lady Doris Salon of Beauty, which has been an important part of West Point, providing quality service for 33 years.
â€śI have the most devoted customers, whether they come in every week, month or whenever, I strive to give them the best service possible,â€ť said Williams. â€śMy specialty is hair care. You need specialized knowledge of chemicals to work with African-American hair. I want everyone who leaves my shop to have healthier hair than when they came in.â€ť
Williams is licensed with the Mississippi State Board of Cosmetology since 1962, and has been a fully licensed instructor since 1983.
Williams wishes for everyone to join her in celebrating her golden anniversary of hair care.
