A new hair salon and urban style clothing shop opened in Duluth Saturday.


"Natural Braiding Beauty LLC and GJTS Fashion Inc" specializes in textured hair braiding and cutting, as well as, urban clothing.

It is located at 1131 East 4th Street and will be open Monday through Saturday from 9:00am to 9:00pm or by appointment.

Denisa Ford-Washington, one of the owners who specializes in doing textured hair, believes a place like this will thrive in Duluth because it is a service that is needed by many.

“It’s definitely needed, so it’s definitely going to do well,” Ford-Washington said.

Talib Shabazz, the other owner who specializes in clothing, echoed these words—adding that the location was perfect.

“We have college kids here, we have various communities so want to just contribute to them and I think it will do well because of the location we are in,” Shabazz said.

Ford-Washington and Shabazz said they hope to bridge gaps with culture awareness for textured hair and bring new forms of fashion to the community through their business.

"We are open for business. Come on down," Shabazz said.
