Her first shop was m her home on Cooke Street. The business in her home on Cooke was great - according to Carylyn. When her children were little, their playpen was set up in the shop. As the children got older, some of her regular customers would hold the youngsters on their laps and read to them. When her children went off to school, all they had to do was go out the back door and they were practically at school. Carylyn said it was an ideal situation for her business and children. How is business? Carylyn said she now has three generations of customers. She has her original cus- tomers. She has her original customer's children's. And, now, she has their grandchildren. But these folks are more than customers. They are her close Mends and extended family. i Even today, Carolyn has customers that have moved away, but return for appointments. Some come from Chi- cago to visit family - and they schedule an appointment with Carylyn when they are in town. Over her 47-years Carylyn has seen many changes in styles. But she has also seen how things haven't changed. She said, for example, she still "rolls hair" for customers - just like she did on her first day as a stylist. Carylyn says she absolutely loves what she does. She added, "How many people can say they love their job?" Carylyn then commented, "I am blessed with community support. I have been able to work on my own and the community has kept the business going." Now semi-retired, Carylyn keeps her appoint- ment book full. No longer working six days a week, she is open Tuesdays through Fridays. Her business is still in her home - now at 504 North Marion (Comer of Jasper & Marion). And for an interesting note... When Carylyn opened for business in 1967 a shampoo and set was $2. Today she charges $12 for a shampoo and set. Based on inflation she should be charging $13.10. Customers still get a bargain plus...
