There’s more to a salon than cutting hair or painting nails — at least for Hoover’s Angela Bradley.

Originally from Cali, Colombia, Bradley remembers working there at her mother’s salon on the weekends.

“I would do everything from manicures, pedicures and make-up,” Bradley says. “I have been involved in a salon environment my whole life.

She was also going to college to become a lawyer during this time and decided to move to the United States in 1997 to find new opportunities. Bradley eventually landed in Hoover in 2012.

“Before moving, I consistently heard wonderful things about Hoover, and they were proven true after my first visit,” she recalls. “I fell in love with the environment and family-oriented community.”

She began working at a salon here, and after developing her clientele, she decided to open her own salon in December 2014 on John Hawkins Parkway: Pure Style Salon & Spa.

In the Lake Crest Shopping Center, her salon now has five hair designers, including Bradley: Juliana, Kristi, Marta and Izzy. And they continue to grow their customer base, as well, with a welcoming environment and a range of services.

They offer things like highlights, colors, perms, relaxers, Brazilian blowouts, make-up applications, extensions, gel nails, waxing and haircuts.

“We are determined to give our clients the best experience possible, while also offering them the best products and services,” Bradley says.

There are also wedding and girl’s-night-out packages available. In addition to being a full-service salon, Pure Style offers a variety of trendy jewelry.

“We pamper our clients by offering a complimentary glass of wine, soda, Colombian coffee or water,” Bradley says. “Some Saturdays, we offer a variety of pastries.

“Clients come to Pure Style Salon to relieve themselves of stress and unwind after long days,” she continues. “Our salon provides a calming experience in a peaceful environment.”

For Bradley, it’s all about providing high-quality customer service, products, an enjoyable atmosphere and affordable prices.

“We also maintain a friendly, fair and creative work environment: We respect diversity, ideas and hard work,” she says.

Those are just a few of the reasons why her salon continues to grow and attract new customers. And the foundation for it all is Bradley’s passion for what she does.

“I am happy to be the owner of Pure Style Salon, and I am determined to make a difference in this business,” Bradley says. “Every day, I try my best to create a positive work environment to make my team happy. I enjoy every single minute of my job because I have the best team of hair designers in town.”
