Maria Rosa Jaime del Pozo, the owner, was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. She comes from a family where most women are teachers or hairdressers. From a very young age Maria learned from her predecessors, the art of hair dressing. Straightening her friend’s hairs using a hair relaxer of home preparation, made of soap and lic. The hairdresser exercise gave Maria lots of satisfaction, but also generated many questions. Questions came from the limitation being able to offer her friends the same relaxer for all hair texture. At the same time this limitation gave her the opportunity to master relaxer application by mere calculation.
In 1991 Maria Rosa arrives to the United States. Her first salon, Rosa’s Hair & Nail was open in Bronx, NY back in 1992, where we remained for 10 years and have nothing but good memories. In 2002 we decided to move to Orlando, Fl., where I felt the overwhelming need of sharing my expertise and therefore become a Cosmetology Professor, at the Kissimmee Academy Career of Training; where I lectured until 2006, time which I felt it would be appropriate to open a new salon. With the thought in mind, Dominicanas Salon open its doors in 2006 and keeps growing strong since.
Our goal is to provide our clients with nothing but perfection.
