CEO and Founder of Perfect Distraction Hair Gallery
Meet Ricola Elizabeth
Ricola’s passion for styling and maintaining healthy hair started long before she opened the first brick and mortar Perfect Distraction Hair Gallery in 2018. As a teenager she would often find herself busying her time with braiding the hair of girls and women in her local community. After graduating high school she enrolled as a student at Augusta State University.
To help defray the expenses of college, she served as a brand representative and sales agent for the local beauty supply store. Through this partnership she was able to gain valuable insight and an in-depth knowledge of hair extensions and the proper way to care for them. Ricola excelled at this role and was making significant progress, that was until the beauty supply store decided to abruptly terminate their partnership with her. To some, this would’ve been an ultimate setback, but for Ricola this was the consequential spark that ignited a burning desire to no longer be an employee but to become her own employer.
Armed with an innate business acumen, a passion for hair, and knowledge gained through work, the foundation for PDHG has been set! From styling hair, revitalizing damaged hair, and even selling hair and hair care products, Ricola’s dream had started to become a reality! The next stop was opening her very own salon. Through perseverance, dedication, and hard work the dream known as Perfect Distraction Hair Gallery became a reality.
