Teena Twilley

Owner

When I was a little girl, I used to play “beauty shop” in my grandmother’s basement. My grandmother used to tell me that when I grew up, I would have a beauty shop for real and it would be all mine. She taught me not to be afraid of my dreams, to put my faith in God, and that through hard work and determination I would succeed. Forty years later, that dream has become a reality not only for myself, but for my family as well, and Designer’s Edge was born. Together we have faced the challenges presented to us and accepted the rewards of owning a business. I credit my success not only to my grandmother who gave me vision, but also to you our valued clients, for your continued patronage and for allowing us to be a part of your lives. We at Designer’s Edge look forward to serving you today, tomorrow, and many years to come. Again, thank you.

Sincerely Yours,
Teena Twilley
