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

Hi Zaniyah, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
The beauty business is among the leading enterprises within the community’s heart. In essence, any authentic business must be one with a positive impact on society. My beauty bar business is founded on this understanding; since its enactment, operations have centered on positive social impact as one of its primary objectives. In particular, the business’ bio offers an in-depth understanding of how it impacts the community. The bio states, “Where beauty, confidence, and indulgence begins.” ​According to the business’ bio, one of the top ways it helps the community is offering confidence, primarily aimed at women globally. It is a known fact beauty is among the principal ways to build a person’s confidence, notably for women; a woman who believes they are beautiful or is deemed so by society will always display high confidence levels. The beauty bar is home to numerous cosmetic services, including hairdressing, micro shading, and make-up offer like eyelashes fixing and trainings. Consequently, confidence in women is among the leading attributes required to address various societal issues, such as gender equality advocacy. Meanwhile, the beauty bar offers an indulgence ground where clients can relax and unwind, enabling them to escape daily worries and stress. Therefore, the business helps the community avoid adverse psychological disorders that can result in negative consequences, such as suicide or substance abuse, by helping reduce the potential onset of mental issues like stress, depression, or anxiety. Most importantly, the beauty bar is among the top businesses that participate in various community-based charities offering aid to vulnerable populations, such as orphans or the homeless.

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?
​My beauty bar was founded in 2019. The business runs for the sole purpose of being unique. One of the primary aspects that set us apart is our customer base; we host various ethical backgrounds, religious affiliations, and sexual orientations. We believe that any ideal business must illustrate a passion for unity in society. Hence, one of the central factors we are excited about is the ability to offer a place where one is not discriminated against on any basis, primarily sexual orientation and race. ​Nevertheless, though the enterprise has various elements to be proud of, the journey has been difficult. Firstly, the idea of establishing a beauty bar was met with multiple objections from family and friends; they claimed that the venture existed at large and would only result in significant financial losses. Nonetheless, I opted to utilize my savings to establish the business. Moreover, I participated in an internship and part-time jobs in different beauty salons to gain in-depth knowledge, wisdom, and experience running a beauty bar effectively. Thus, determination and an unrelenting spirit are the principal factors that have helped overcome all obstacles in my business journey. On the other hand, some of the crucial lessons learned in the journey include the essence of ensuring a business is founded on a reasonable force, such as positive social impact, openness to new opportunities, and the need to promote human-machine cooperation. Ultimately, the primary aspect the world should know about my business is its exclusivity; we are a home where beauty, confidence, and indulgence commence for all people.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I would take my bestfriend to the Galleria to shop and then go to a FattMike concert!!
