Esthetician Opens First Black-Owned Beauty School in Kentucky
Heather Weatherspoon was the first esthetician to sign up and list her business on the SpaSho directory, so she’s definitely a favorite around here, and another HUGE first—she is the first and only Black woman to own a beauty school in the state of Kentucky: The Exquisite Beauty Institute.
This history-making move received national attention. The Kelly Clarkson Show featured Heather to discuss her achievement.
While on the show, Heather tells Kelly about her journey as a pharmacy student to the owner of a beauty school. One company was so impressed by her story, that they awarded her with a check.
Watch Heather’s appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show from this Yahoo Entertainment! article.
