We had the good fortune of connecting with Samantha Nifakos and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Samantha, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I had always dreamed of starting my own business. I believe wholeheartedly that passion is a crucial quality of success. Running your own business gives me a sense of accomplishment and pride. Once I set my mind to something I will find a way to achieve that.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I have always had a passion for making women feel glamorous and helping women feel their absolute best! Since opening my studio five years ago, I have added more depth to my business, Sammy’s Suite Hair & Makeup offers makeup application, Bridal services, hair extensions, color, and styling. My business has also been honored “The Best of the Knot” as well as “Couples Choice” award by Wedding Wire every year since being in business. To ensure highest customer satisfaction, my team and I are always working on bettering our skills and adding new skills to our arsenal. We are constantly doing online classes or attending class to keep us up to date on current trends. Has it been a smooth road to success? Success doesn’t come easy. You have to put in a lot of time, resources, and determination to grow your dream.Starting any business takes a leap of faith and was for sure a very difficult step toward getting where I am today. I have never been the bravest person, but one thing is true about me I am very determined. Once I set my mind to something I always follow thru no matter how long it takes me. I have worked very hard to get to where I am today. Our attention to detail and constant strive for customer satisfaction is what sets us apart from any other salon or studio. We are all about connecting with our customers and doing what is right for them.

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
We live in paradise, who wouldn’t want to come and visit here? I love good food, good drinks and good music. My first spot to bring someone would be Louis bossi in Boca Raton. Great Italian food, great atmosphere and the people watching is great!! The beach is a no brainer, when you come to Florida, would always visit Bennys on the beach for some lunch 🙂 If we had extra time I would Take them to visit the Florida keys. It’s so relaxing there, lots of cute shops and restaurants you can visit there as well.
