Rave reviews by loyal and appreciative clients vouch for the work of our first award winner.
Shi Shi’s Lounge – a hair salon and recipient of the 2016 Small Business of the Year award - was opened by Eurayshia Williams Reed in 2008 as Worcester’s first multi-textural hair salon.
Shi Shi – which means upscale and lavish – offers just the right mix of artistry and edge to their clients seeking the perfect look.
This small business is a style powerhouse with services that go beyond offering that perfect hairdo to include skin care, make-up, and more.
With an enthusiastic following, she is clearly doing a lot right.
While they’re in the salon, Shi Shi’s caters to its clients’ inner divas with a concierge service, refreshments, and a relaxing atmosphere where patrons can enjoy a respite from their busy day.
Located on Chandler Street, it’s a neighborhood business in the true sense -- Shi Shi’s hosts events that bring the community together including ladies’ night and other opportunities for social gatherings.
For the company’s achievements in management and innovation, workplace excellence, and commitment to the community, the Chamber is pleased to present the 2016 Small Business of the Year award to Shi-Shi’s Lounge.
