For Priscilla Gill, lifetime beautician and The Hair and Brow Bar owner, success in the beauty industry is about staying on top of new trends, but also about a healthy foundation first.

“The natural beauty line is a hit by itself,” Gill said. “People are getting that it’s all connected to your blood stream, and even if [chemicals are] just on your scalp, it still affects you.”

Although competition is fierce in Conroe for beauty and hair clientele, Gill travels to professional conferences to find the freshest trends. To keep updated, she and her staff attend monthly classes and annual seminars, such as the Discover Beauty Show in Dallas on March 24-25.

“At those shows, you walk around, test products like curling irons, [and] they also have classes you can sign up for teaching anything from technique to product knowledge,” Gill said. “I go to a beauty convention once a year in Mexico, too. … Surprisingly, they’re more advanced than we are.”

Gill opened up her Conroe salon along Frazier Street in September 2017 after returning to the hometown of her husband, a Conroe High School graduate.

“We came out to Conroe just because of the growth, and we’ve been growing with it,” Gill said. “We came in at the peak of everything growing, and I’m so excited and happy to do this—I’ve always wanted to have a salon.”

Gill learned how to thread eyebrows at the tender age of 13 from her cousins during family vacations in Mexico before it even became popular. Threading is one of her specialties now, along with offering natural products from Ioma and Natural Beauty Care.

With four full-time employees she oversees during a personal training period, Gill is thinking about growth. She wants to add two more shampoo bowls soon and up to eight full-time staff, eventually.

“Sometimes we’re caught waiting for the shampoo bowls, waiting to rinse people,” Gill said. “That’s a good sign, but I also need to fix that.”
